We ignore the beauty around us often. I know, because I do it too. And yet, when I have my camera in my hand, it suddenly becomes visible. The chipped paint on the lamp over there, the reflection in the shop window, the fabulous shade of green shot through with sunlight on the other side of the street.
The world is always beautiful, it's just up to us to see it. And for whatever reason, a camera makes that process so much easier.
Try it out. Take your camera out, see what you can find.
