This is a picture from under a small palm tree. Another example of not just standing there. I had to lay on the ground and slide under the tree to see these. I haven’t really noticed the seeds that palm trees make before so I just had to have a look.
One last thought. With all the anger, politics, debate, and general nastiness that is going on in this country right now isn’t it nice to know that none of that effects your own creativity (unless you let it). You can always find beauty around you, you can always take pictures or draw or paint things. While the world fights, I’m just going to keep taking my 5D mark II with me where every I go and find great lightings, or great faces, or interesting settings. Let the others fight.
