There is visual delight to be found everywhere I look. The lens offers a chance to see things up close and from a different angle, shutting out extraneous visual noise and letting me focus (concentrate, meditate) on a unique perspective of the world around me. It is a means of discovering mystery and humor and beauty in things I might otherwise ignore or tune out. In getting through the day, we so often put on blinders in the rush for efficiency. Carrying a camera reminds you to see.
