    I think that we should all strive to work on seeing things in the mundane, and strive to find new and interesting shots wherever we are. I experienced this on a recent engagment shoot where my couple wanted to shoot somewhere where I had never been before. I took it as an opportunity to expand my vision, and see shots I had never seen before. This alone is wildly rewarding.
