Because this is my work place, I’ve done countless shoots here and take it for granted. Often, in my hurried pace to cross off all the items on my shot list, I fail to appreciate its beauty, even if it’s right under my nose. Some weeks back, amidst another hectic shoot schedule, I stopped to take a few snap shots throughout the day. Funny how I only realized that I actually missed these moments when I got home and started reviewing my photos. I was so focused on completing all the shots that I completely missed out on the experience of being in those moments. I told myself that I will make a conscious effort to be present in the moment next time–to take in the fresh aroma of the sea breeze, to bask under the glorious sunlight and feel the warmth on my cheeks, to look at and listen to the exotic colorful birds I will never see in the city, and just to appreciate the wondrous beauty of nature that surrounds me.
