Day 19 – Come On Baby, Light My Fire!

O! for a muse of fire, that would ascend the brightest heaven of invention. – William Shakespeare

When you forget what you’re looking for, sometimes you discover other things. That is the positive spin on being ADD, and thus that’s how I spotted today’s what is it?!? subject. Can you guess what it is?

What Is It?!?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture

It wasn’t an egg, nor terra cotta tile or marble, not leather or vinyl; yesterday’s subject was a candle. Here’s a different perspective.

Day 18 – What Was I Thinking?!?

Thinking: the talking of the soul with itself. – Plato

There are benefits to being ADD. Hopefully I will remember what those are … (that’s for tomorrow’s post) …

But what was I thinking?!? I must say this to myself at least 100 times per day. The problem with being ADD (from my perspective) is that I constantly forget what I’m doing. I’ll have this great idea, go to get whatever, and by the time I get there, I have forgotten my mission. It might be a matter of five seconds. It just happened to me again. Again.

Flash! Brilliant idea! I know exactly what I want to photograph today! I’ve got an image in my mind already. Where’s the camera? With camera in hand, I notice something. Hmmmm, I look closer, yes! this is ideal for an image. Click click click. Now back to my original mission.

OK, now what was I thinking?!? I’m here with the camera but clueless as to what in the heck I was going to photograph! Mind blank. Blank. Blank.

Flash! Aha! I remembered! Finally. Finally! And thus, today’s mystery what is it?!? picture was captured. Can you guess what it is?

What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture

The image I posted yesterday was another piece of bark … from the same Crepe Myrtle tree as the other bark picture (Day 13). What’s amazing to me is that I can capture such vastly different images of the same subject  just by looking at it differently.
