Pool art

It's almost embarrassing to say, but I love taking photos such as these more than I do a big landscape. To me, this sort of photography is so exciting, so much fun to do, with so many lines and angles and variations to explore, that (for me) the big picture, the overall swimming pool and its surroundings, fade into the background and my attention is concentrated on the twenty or so square feet in front of me.

Perhaps my New Year's resolution should be to expand my vision. To see the big picture rather than have photographic blinders on. Then again, maybe not . . . What are YOUR photo resolutions? Maybe I can be inspired by yours! ©Carol Leigh
