Different perspectives…

407A0038-1

 

Lately our family has been watching a great Nova-produced series called “The Universe.” It’s quite humbling, really, to consider what a microblip our Earth is, in the bigger scheme of the vast, seemingly infinite cosmos. And the more you learn about the origins of life and the great leaps forward astronomers and astrogeologists and many others are making in our understanding of our galaxy, the more humbling–and miraculous–our existence becomes. Deep stuff, really.A

Several weeks ago, I set out to look closer at the world beneath my own feet–the microcosms that exist in a delicate balance far beneath our everyday awareness. In contemplating those images today, it occurs to me perspective works both directions. Each of the beautiful, geometric peaks and valleys found on this common backyard leaf is actually a vast landscape for other life forms, albeit smaller then our own, but no less complex, no less worthy. Maybe it’s just me, but I like the idea that there is so much more to the world than what we see everyday. Photography offers a unique window into both the infinitely big, as well as the remarkably small. Either direction you look, there are new mysteries to unlock, and unique beauty to behold. Hope you enjoy…
