Through a lens



A camera is a great tool to help  see closer, see more, see different. When you slow down and really focus on what you see, even the everyday and the familiar look new.  For me, looking through a lens and within a frame helps make that happen. This column, “through the lens” will focus on what new things emerge to look at through my camera. I hope it becomes a jumping off point for you to take out your camera and do the same.


Today, I got to thinking about frames, borders, edges.

The places we don’t usually look first. What treasure are there, waiting to be seen?
