I took my camera and my new telephoto lens out onto a favorite little out-of-the-way road of mine. It was hot, the grass was burnt, and the air quality was medicore due to state-wide wildfires. Yet, something I’m coming to realize is that if you can’t find beauty or perspective in the ugliest of situations, you just aren’t looking hard enough. The diamond is waiting to be discovered.
I found my diamond on a little out-of-the-way road when the day was thick and the air smelled like grass-burnt dust.
