“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”
― Susan Sontag
Likely Heath Asters, but I did not send a lot of time trying to differentiate between the multitude of white asters. This is another image made outdoors with my portable setup. In fact, you will see these asters in the post where I show the setup itself. Fall asters are, like many native plants, are finding their way into my conscious world. I find myself surprised at just how much went unobserved to me for too many years. Many beautiful flowers were just passed by as background clutter and I’m not sure why. So, I’m grateful for this shift in my vision. Where I notice more than ever before, in much finer detail and am able to document it so that I can look even closer and share those observations with others.
