up close and personal


A thought occurred to me today, as I was lying on my back taking a photo of a flower. I'm fascinated by the intricate detail of things - not just flowers (though that might not be obvious to readers of this blog). Yet in my work life - and possibly in other areas - my natural approach is more of a helicopter view, i.e. looking at the big picture, seeking the strategic approach without getting bogged down in detail.

My conclusions? I don't have any - it just strikes me as a paradox.

Of course, maybe if I lay on the floor at work meetings I would see things from a different perspective!!

oh, I'm sure quite a stir would be made were you to analyze from the floor level!! :0

like the photo....TB and I were just out taking flower photos as well...he focused up close on the flowers, I went for the landscape. Interesting that the men would chose the up close and details of things (his work also involves 'big picture'. Hmmm, what can be made of this paradox... ;)

I love that idea! When you've tried it be sure and post about it and let us know what happened...
