A good photographer is a constant observer: always watching and studying a scene, from patterns in city traffic to movements in nature. A photographer notices big, sweeping changes — like the sky at dusk — but also the tiniest details.
Exploring the outdoors, with camera in hand, is an opportunity to look for natural lines that lead our eyes to different parts of a frame. Envision the bend of a stream, or the curve of a petal: how can you use these lines in your composition? If you see strong vertical, horizontal, or diagonal lines, can you play with the orientation to create a more dynamic composition?

Yes, the eucalyptus tree does have interesting bark. We have a lizard under a bush outside our apartment also, although he’s sort of disappeared lately. Did “Mr.Lizard,” that’s what we call him, take a trip to Florida that we don’t know about?
Yes, it’s an amazing tree. Well he certainly has lots of cousins, brothers and sisters here for sure.
