Serendipity

Serendipity:  the faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for…

… finding something when looking for something else, thanks to an observant mind….. that’s serendipity….

 …which leads me to the topic of observation….

I really think it is a gift that can be practiced and honed….. to be observant of your surroundings means not only seeing with your eyes, but processing images with your mind…..

….looking for patterns, trends, inconsistencies, and outliers….. this is the observant mind ….

 I fancy I have an observant mind…. a gift that has helped me in many years of science and medical training….

… and a gift that helps me tremendously in photography.

 Take for instance… this feather, shed by our lovely Dandy…

…it fluttered back to earth and alighted in a tired and faded pot of flowers….

…only to gather tiny drops from a watering hose….

….and serendipitously found by me.

Serendipity or observation?

…… maybe a little of both……

but definitely beautiful.

Have yourself a beautiful day filled with serendipity!
