Noticing The Background - Art Everywhere!

Everyday life can be transformed by looking at things in a different way. Years ago, when I first got a digital camera and took it everywhere with me, I noticed that carrying a camera changed my perception, it made me aware of the things that normally become 'background' as we go through our days.

Once you begin looking for things to photograph, your subconscious takes that on board and brings things to your attention that you perhaps would not have noticed previously. Everywhere you go there is something exciting, interesting or beautiful.

A few weeks ago I was passing a supermarket that is not my usual one, I needed a few things and decided to pop in while I was passing. I was immediately struck by the trollies outside - they looked like a modern art installation to me. . . So I fished out my camera and started snapping. I am sure the other shoppers wondered what on earth I was doing! :-)
