Finding A Something More

Funny how some normal-looking photographs offer the potential of being something more.

My daughter sent me a long-distance snapshot of my grand-son playing with his dad.  I can't get enough of seeing photos of him, exploring his new world with curiosity and eagerness.

Something about this image attracted me.

I take another look and let my subconscious see it, too.  

(It helps to relax or fuzz the eyes so you are not focusing on detail.)

If I recieve a 'alerting' feeling about it (almost like the feeling of having your hair stand on end,) it means my eyes are sensing a new image there

sometimes right down in in the center of the photograph.

Like all beautiful things, it has been there all the time.

I would love to hear if this technique has worked for you, and about the brave new photographs you have found within your own images.
