Thematic Photographic 164 - It's in the details
London, ON, June 2011
I don't have a whole lot of rules in my life, but one that does pop up fairly regularly is this: Look closely. When you narrow your view, lean in and squint your eyes just so to focus in on a specific detail, you see things you might have otherwise missed.
And as the photo of the rear end of a black Volvo XC90 attests, you don't have to go all the way in to see more. Sometimes, just a slight amount of zeroing in is enough to get a fresh perspective. So that's what I'd like to accomplish over the next week. Thematic's "It's in the details" theme will challenge us to isolate things a bit, to stop looking at the big picture and instead look at one or two of the details that contribute to it.
I think it'll be fun, and I hope you'll think so, too.
Your turn: Please share a picture that reflects this week's "it's in the details" theme, or find something you've already posted online. Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Drop in on other participants, and feel free to repeat the process throughout the week. If you're new to Thematic, just click here for more details on how it works. You'll be glad you did.
