new growth

Think of that in your own life or even in your photographic life. When we become rigid in our views, even rigid in where we get our information, the system breaks down and we don’t adapt and grow. Everyone would benefit from noticing how much they interpret and evaluate based on narrowed lenses. We can open ourselves by seeking out opposing views, seeing the complexity in situations, and entertaining new possibilities. We might even be surprised at what comes up. Most new growth comes in surprising ways. —Kim Manley Ort
