Taking time to look for the 'pretty' in the 'ordinary' is one way to build our appreciation for the Creator of the world we live in, no matter where that may be. The challenge is in capturing what the eye sees, along with the mood and feeling that the mind interprets, in a particular time and place.
The human eye obviously is the best camera ever made. The 'memory' that comes with it though, well that's another story ! Which could explain why cameras were invented in the first place !
