Keep on looking

The virtue of the camera is not the power it has to transform the photographer into an artist, but the impulse it gives him to keep on looking.

Lately, I can't stop staring at the sky. It seems bigger and brighter somehow (and this is Texas!). Or maybe I just haven't been paying attention?

This past weekend I returned to the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve to see how Spring was coming along. In the back of my mind I wondered, what am I going to photograph? I've already been here once before. But that's the funny thing about photography. You could visit the same place a thousand times over and find something new with each visit. It is never the same.

And, you know, it's refreshing to find myself surprised by a new perspective.

Or even just a sweet moment. 

What's surprising you these days?
