a new view

This red fountain at the Opryland hotel reminded me that sometimes we need to remember to change our view. I walked by it from the ground quite few times ( see below) and even almost sat on the edge...until noticing how wet it was! But it wasn't until I saw it from above that I found it to be incredibly beautiful with it's rich red and all of that great texture! This photo has got to be one of my favorites that I captured on my trip to Nashville.
I think this applies not only to photography, but even more to life. It is like this often; we don't always see how incredible things are in our world until we change our view.
Y'know I always say that different is not bad it is just different. There is most often good to be found in any situation, no matter how frustrating it may seem, if we take the time to look at it from a new angle and find that goodness. It makes me smile when this happens, like a treasure was just waiting there for me.
So here's to changing our view and looking at life with fresh eyes!!!
