SNOWY WHITE OWL

It can be a hard pill to swallow to accept that we can’t control everything. People can try and resist this truth and push on regardless, stubbornly trying to control things they can’t. Naturally, all the stubbornness can’t change the reality of the matter. What happens instead is that you start to let it affect you. You might become obsessive over small details. We can divert our energy on micromanaging things and never let go of control, expecting other people to conform. You might think that maintaining some sort of control on others or on your situation in hopes of preventing failure or misfortune.

I also have the tendency to worry about things that are out of my control. I can completely understand wanting to plan out and also prepare for every possible unwanted scenario. However, as my many experiences have taught me, there is no way to ever be in complete control. 

PHOTOGRAPHING THE SNOWY WHITE OWL

On this photography trip, I was in Canada photographing snowy owls. Their pristine white features were absolutely gorgeous. They made the birds look like they had flown off the pages of a fairy tale. However, they also did their job of camouflaging the owls in their frigid home exceptionally well. I began to worry about how I would photograph them against a white snowy background. What a tragedy if the birds just melted into the background. The thought of failure keeps me up that night, tossing and turning. I desperately tried to think of a solution or something I could do to work around the issue if it ever arose. 

To my delight, it never did. The owls showed up beautifully, their snowy home being the perfect background. However, the whole time I was photographing them I was anxiously thinking about the possibility of failure. I was so caught up in my head that I forgot to enjoy the experience. I had to ask myself,  “What was more important: a good photograph or a happy moment?” My answer is what got me to stop pouring my energy into pointless worry and focus on what I could do, especially if it was enjoying myself.
