Hiding in Plain Sight

K’lee has asked us to share photos that reveal an interesting element not noticed in the moment, but discovered in a future viewing of the image.


The camera has an amazing ability to capture details that the naked eye has missed in the moment. “A good snapshot stops a moment from running away” (Eudora Welty) and one can revisit it at one’s leisure.

There are two little insects on the top of this rock that I didn’t notice until after the fact. 


This photo was taken from my car window. 

On later inspection,  a cat appeared and a pot on the ledge.

We didn’t stay long for another shot. A lady noticed us and chased us away. 


…and then there’s the unknown elements that editing reveals after taking the original photo.

  1. Your rock reminded me of a photo of a Blue Jay with two insects on top of it head.

    I like the cat and the pot on the ledge. It must have been a surprise to be chased away by the occupant. The place looks uninhabited.

      I know. That’s what we thought and just wanted to take an innocent photo of their wood pile and then this rustic house. Actually it was quite scary the way she suddenly ran towards the car, flailing her arms and yelling something. We weren’t on her property, so it was a bit shocking. Things one does to get a photo. Ha ha!
