There is much beauty in the shape and texture of flowers. Sometimes the naturally awe inspiring colors sweep us away before we can soak up these other astounding features. I call it the color blind effect. By taking out the color every every now and then, it allows our focus to shift and perhaps we can take notice of something we didn't see before. I enjoy finding ways to gain a wider perspective. It's especially interesting when it happens with something you see all the time.

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
"The moment one gives close attention to anything,
even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
