  • I rent a car and drove to the sea.

    Once there, I took pictures of it from ambitious angles.

    They turned out post card beautiful of course.

    (I managed to catch the dancing reflection
    of the evening sun in the strong Baltic currents.)

    But it wasn't until I shifted focus and, through the camera,
    looked at the field right where I stood, that I saw it.


    Maybe this is how I should view this precious life of mine.
