Once in a Blue Moon...

Sometimes we concentrate so much on the small details that we lose the whole picture.

That was brought home to me recently when I took the above photo. I was concentrating so much on the composition of objects (A Blue Moon on Dec 31st 2009 framed by a tall saguaro cactus) that I literally wasn't really seeing the objects in front of me. If I had been present to ALL of it - I would have seen the little owl in the saguaro cactus. But I didn't realize the owl was there until I got home and uploaded the photos I had taken. Now how often do you think ALL the proper elements of this photo could have come together so perfectly without me being aware of it?
Yup - you guessed it!
