Every day, I check on our chickens.

I peek in through this chicken wire to check for eggs, and to make sure they have enough food and water.

Usually, I pay no attention to the wire itself. But this time, after looking in at the hens, I noticed the interesting lines and twists of the wire. The colour of the barn board behind the wire makes for an almost monochromatic composition.

Picture possibilities are everywhere.

Seeing Softly

And this is the photo I did take of the flowers…

It’s a brightly beautiful bouquet: fuchsia, turquoise, tangerine and lavender. Cheerful colours in a muted season.

When I take out my camera, I look closer, see softer. Instead of a bouquet, each flower is a picture possibility.
