It's those little journeys off the beaten path where one can learn the most. Learning to follow the path of greatest curiousity is where we reap our greatest rewards.

Get up close and personal
It applies to a lot of things, with cars you pick up the details that the overview only alludes to. With landscapes you get details of the flora and fauna that is lost in the grandiose soak it all image. With flowers you pick up the erotic from the mundane blossom.
Yup, the pic above is me. One of only a few known to exist, especially me doing what I do best, photographing cars. Its also me practicing what I preach, move in close for details and fill the frame with them. In this case I was shooting the hood ornament on this classic Packard. What a car, but look a the attention to detail in it. Lots of art deco details that are lost in the wide shot of the entire car. The following image is what I got from that shot. Thanks to my friend Stephen Coleman who captured me doing what I love.
