One thing is constant no matter where I travel. What is common place for a local is often special to someone traveling through. Somehow when we are exposed to something, no matter how beautiful, day in and day out it often becomes less special. Yet when you show this “common” item to someone visiting the perception is completely different.
While in Utah I had this experience several times. Sunflowers on the side of the road… nothing special to the locals, yet an incredibly beautiful photographic subject to me. I suppose the moral of this thought is its sometimes helpful to put on the hat of a tourist where you live and rediscover what is in your own backyard.
