What I (Sophia) appreciate about photography is that it takes real, everyday objects and turns them into art. Photography depicts our society from a different visual perspective. The Featured Image for this post was taken at a really cool angle, and it made me think: Do we ever take time to look up at the sky? Sometimes I find myself so tense with school, work, and social activities. I’m so accustomed to looking down, whether it be looking at my phone, keyboard, or notebook. It’s a refreshing change to stop and, for once, just look up. What you see may surprise you. Fall’s arrival has gifted us with vibrant scenery that highlights nature’s beauty. The changing colours of the leaves brings the promise of a new season, one that encompasses new adventures and experiences.
