Seeing pictures

Yesterday evening I took several pictures. I was so taken by the massive oak at sunset that I overlooked another shot I tood a moment later of the farm pond. It didn't turn out too badly either.

I was taking a picture today and one of the subjects was a woman that Jilda and I have known for over 40 years. When I saw her, she asked how I was doing. I responded as I always do, "I'm livin' a dream." She said I think I'd be living a dream too if I got to drive around and take beautiful pictures of trees. She asked how I managed to take so many good pictures. I guffawed a good bit. She said no, seriously?

I told her that I learned to use a camera and take pictures over 50 years ago, but I'm just now learning how to "see" pictures.
