Walking around school campus is something I do five days a week and sometimes more. I go through my daily routines with tunnel vision, only focused on getting to class and doing my work. So, I never really notice the little things that make my school campus beautiful nor I take the time to truly enjoy it. Not until I was assigned to go outside and take pictures of anything.
“Anything?” I asked my classmates.
“Anything,” they responded.
So I did.
Everybody was excited to breathe in fresh air and goofed around and had fun. As for me, I strayed from the crowd and started looking for anything. Anything that would be worthy of a photo. I walked around a little bit and started to see one beautiful thing after another—it was truly endless. The way the sun showered the trees with warm serene light, the crimson leaves collecting one by one on the ground, flowers succumbing to bumble bees, butterflies fluttering their intricate wings, and so much more.
Why have I not noticed this before? I don’t know.
However, after this assignment, I have eliminated my tunnel vision, stroll instead of speed walk, and stop every once in a while to close my eyes as I simply listen to my surroundings. I hope everybody else does the same, because once you do there is no going back.
