I always appreciate when people send me links to articles and organizations that advocate slowing down and taking notice of the beauty of nature, and our place in it. This article was sent by a writer in Vancouver, and its a reminder of the importance of teaching photography not as a way to make “snapshots” or quick records of a place, but rather as a way of enhancing observational skills, and encouraging people to slow down and notice the world around them. http://www.slate.com/id/2279659/
