Over the years people have asked me what goes through my mind when I look through the camera lens, because I tend to take pictures of the strangest things: frosted spiderwebs, snow slush in the street, water drains/faucets, close ups of lemon slices in a glass of water. For me half the fun is picturing what is beyond the lens. Sometimes, it's not the picture you take that you are after, but the picture that you edit - does that make sense? It's the end product.
Here are a couple of examples. The first one is what I actually saw through the lens and the second one is what I saw in my mind.
