Project Athena - Day 138 (Lens Flare)

Through a window

Things do not change; we change.
— Henry David Thoreau

As the week progresses, flare is becoming a natural intoxicating design element in my photographic palette. What I once perceived as a "problem" has been literally reframed and is now as welcome in a composition as lines, patterns, or texture. I feel as though I have taken my photos up a notch by just being willing to explore in a different way. I have even figured out how to embellished images in Photoshop with lens flares including this one. Observing the change in myself is making me smile. It feels like I have freed myself from some locked room that I've always held the key to.
