Sight Strolls


The Last Hurrah

My childhood piano teacher was fond of saying to me, “Practice makes perfect.” It’s an adage familiar to us all. Over the years I have learned to question…What exactly is perfection?  The answers given when I have asked have shifted and evolved over the course of the years.

I have learned that the habit or discipline of practice is indeed necessary to hone any sort of skill.

In recent weeks I have increased my practice of photography. I take what I call “sight strolls.” With photo gear draped on my shoulders, I stroll through carefully and sometimes not so carefully chosen sites with eyes wide open or eyes squinted, looking, assessing, feeling, and then receiving the invitation to raise my camera.

Between showers this past week I strolled through Centennial Park and Belmont University campus in Nashville, Tennessee. While perfection eluded me, the practice internally rearranged me in subtle ways. I felt happy on the inside when I got home. In this instance discipline begat contentment.
