After staring at this photo for a couple of minutes, I noticed some different things that I didn’t notice before. I noticed the traffic lights and the palm trees in the background. I never noticed a lot of the background at first because I was just paying attention to the center of the photo. After a longer glance, I felt differently about this photo. I realized that I missed a lot of the background at first glance but when I noticed it, I realized that these background elements are very important and help add to the feel of the photo.
