Look in the opposite direction

“Don’t lower your expectations to meet your performance. Raise your level of performance to meet your expectations. Expect the best of yourself, and then do what is necessary to make it a reality.” ~ Ralph Marston

Daybreak at Dahican Beach, Mati, Davao Oriental during my travel photography workshop

When I told my photography students we were shooting sunrise, they were bent on capturing the sunrise.  So busy were they waiting for the break of dawn that they forgot to look behind them for other scenes of  interest.  They were all looking at one direction.

I make it a habit to look 360 degrees around me.  Behind me, I caught a rainbow, quietly forming behind coconut trees, and no one noticed.

In looking at the opposite direction, we find other opportunities to make the best of any situation.
