The beholder

When I was in St Petersburg Florida last April, I took a walk near a rather interesting beach that was very close to the downtown area. It was kind of a locals spot with guys weight lifting, cyclists and birdwatchers.
I look up and I see this opportunity for a really nice picture.
I shoot.

A guy on a bike comes by with his big old camera backpack, sees I'm taking a picture of something so waits until I move on and starts looking for what it was I was taking a picture of.
He pulled out his zoom lens in search of the bird, bug or frog that was my subject.
He didn't see it! He moved on.

In the eye of the Beholder


Have a blessed day!
