Despite my desire to recognize the beauty in the ordinary moments, I am reluctant to photograph the local Wawa Convenience Store, the Starbucks coffee cup from the shop around the corner, or the never ending stream of traffic as we pass over Interstate 95.
I’ve wrestled with the Why of this hesitancy. Is one scene more worthy than another? And if the answer is yes, what makes it so?
As I read the latest issue of Weekly Findings from my friend and Life Coach Helen McLaughlin, I understood.
These scenes could be anywhere. They are not-so special.
Like Helen, I want to swap out wide for deep.
It’s not an issue of grandness or richness or beauty, but rather one of authenticity and sincerity.
