In the Park on Saturday

Ivy Envy

There was a little curl

Patty and I went out on a treasure hunt Saturday. We were looking at the park through a new photographer’s eye and trying to figure out how to teach someone to see what makes a picture a photograph. What it comes down to is details. The big picture is sometimes very pretty, but not always compelling. But the details, well, those are really what catch your eye in the first place and are often what turn a picture into a photograph.

So there you have it. In a nutshell. And without the bigger picture for comparison. I know, I suck when I do that, but Patty was the one who took the “big picture”. I was just there for moral support and the walk. And the photos. And the friendship. Oh, and the fresh air.


  1. You’re right about the details. It’s that little curlicue of growth that makes the photo :worship:

  2. As pretty as the white picket fence is with the green green ivy, it all amounts to nothing more than green and white blah blah blah. But when you get closer, the way the vines curl around the fence boards, well, that’s something entirely different!

    Glad you agree!
