H is for….#AlphabetPhoto

H is for….Hiatus

Definition: A pause or break in continuity in a sequence or activity (Oxford Dictionaries)

As we walked in a field of lavender, I could feel peace and harmony. The scent. The sight. Row upon row of beautiful blue/purple. But every so often, my eye would snag on a butterfly flitting from one flower stalk to another. Breaking the pattern. Drawing the eye.

As humans, we are pre-conditioned to seek out patterns. Anything that doesn’t fit, ensnares our attention. Helpful as hunters, for spotting the outline of our prey among the trees.

This time, the break in the pattern, gave me a chance to think. To wonder. Food for the soul, if not the belly.

      Thanks Lou. It’s from a bigger photo. Took about 5 seconds to take, but a whole lot longer to find the right crop. Still not sure.

    What a beautiful photo 🙂 You are right about patterns I have never really given it much thought but now that I do I realise I am always looking for them, everywhere.

      We do it mostly subconsciously. It would be perception overload otherwise. 🙂

    Instinct. Sometimes I am thinking we are to mechanical but when we are in the middle of a field we get our instinct back. #alphabetphoto

      I’d say it’s true of most natural settings. Room to think. 🙂

      Thanks! You don’t get very many tries at taking photos of butterflies, I find. ‘Specially when they are busy and not in the mood for posing.
