I have come to the conclusion that the persistent cloudiness (nearly two straight months of unrelenting gray and rain) has clouded my judgment about what constitutes a worthwhile photograph. My desire to be outside and looking around for things that grab my attention has been thwarted by a monotonous monochrome backdrop of boring. I continue to photograph things that I think in the moment have the potential to be interesting, but when I get home and download the photos, I see that I have been seriously mistaken.
Take for instance our
latest trip to the marsh. We did get to see and photograph two species
of birds that I have been absolutely hoping to see, these Cinnamon
Teal and the beautiful blue-billed Ruddy Duck. Their presence made the
walk absolutely worthwhile.
interesting enough to do a blog post about? I don't know. That's why the
title of this post is Discernment. I'm afraid the rain may have washed
mine away. I'll keep looking for it, and if anything interesting to
photograph comes up, I'll keep you posted. Hah!
