A fence post

One thing I have learned about myself over the past year or two is very simple.  I like fence posts as a subject for photography.  For one very simple reason, fence posts don't move.  After a long day of sitting inside, I decide to go outside and go shoot some wildlife.  The problem I have found is that it takes a lot of patients to do so.  Don't get me wrong, I grew up hunting and fishing.  I will spend as much time as I have to catch that big fish or see that huge buck.  But for some reason when I get a camera in my hands.  I lose that "skill" of having patients. Or it could be that I can’t get within 50yrds of anything without it running off no matter how slow I move.  So here I am after walking around the woods for about an hour with not much luck. And I see this beautiful fence post just sitting there holding his ground.  Click, satisfaction in some small macro way.

I’m convinced beauty is all around us, it’s all in perspective.
