Looking Closely

Looking closely requires us to slow down.
You cannot view something and take in all of its details, while hurrying past.

Really, really gorgeous. I love taking photos of flowers and seeing all the little intricacies that you sometimes miss when just looking at them from afar. :)

I also love the background. The colors are unusual for a flower photo and makes this stand out.

In photography and in life, it's important to be able to zoom in and zoom out -- both provide insights and perspectives.

Yes! It certainly does make you look closely, doesn't it? And we see detail that we would otherwise have missed.
