Observation

One of the Greats

My lesson to myself for the day is: be observant.  Namely, don’t just look, really see.

 

This is one case where it worked out well for me.  As I was driving through the cemetery looking for photo subjects, I spotted some stuff left near a large marker.

 

If I hadn’t been paying attention, or had been going too fast, I’d have missed it completely.  But because I was being mindful of the opportunities around me, I got this great shot of the final resting place of the late Joe DiMaggio.

 

For you non-baseball fans out there, you’d probably best know him as Marilyn Monroe’s ex-husband, but he was a great deal more than that.  Given he’s been gone so many decades and people are still leaving tributes, that ought to tell you something.

 

Happy Shooting!
