Perspective | Withrow, WA | 2014

Shifts in perspective bring new understanding. A boss bans dogs from the office because (we later learn) she was attacked as a child by a Doberman. Farmers realize too late that grasshoppers bred to devour weeds love corn crops, too. An outbuilding stands lonely on a sterile landscape until I move eastward just 10 yards to discover the dramatic sky above. In my experience, a shift in perspective — in thinking or location — always sharpens vision and opens the mind.
