Once your attention is drawn to a particular item, have you noticed how you suddenly start seeing it everywhere? You many never have noticed a certain type of shoe, or make of car, or hair style but once someone mentions it to you, it’s all you see wherever you go.
As I was walking through the neighborhood the other day, my attention was drawn to a red bike that was particularly photogenic. I hadn’t gone out the door with a plan to take pictures of bicycles, but after seeing that first red bike, I started noticing the variety of bikes on each street. While in the back of my mind I knew there are a lot of bikes around, I never focused in on quite how many there were. As I walked around, I challenged myself to find various angles to photograph each bike.
