I was in Oakland working on some other photos and generally ignored the police and swat team putting the neighborhood on lock down as they went house by house searching for suspects of a drive by and fatal car crash. I found these two shots rather ironic as I rode by.

Seeing, in the finest and broadest sense, means using your senses, your intellect, and your emotions. It means encountering your subject matter with your whole being. It means looking beyond the labels of things and discovering the remarkable world around you.

When you begin viewing the world through a camera lens, your senses sharpen as your mind and eyes are forced to focus on people and things never before noticed or though about. I discovered that even if I didn't always take a picture, the simple act of carrying a camera and searching for something to photograph greatly sharped my powers of observation and allowed me to experince much more of life.
