one thing I observed   I spotted this sea monster at the port of Jaffa, rising from within the waves, entirely invisible except for its white, ominous teethes. It was hiding in plain sight and once discovered, it did everything to assimilate itself again in the blue waves. I managed to capture it in this photo just seconds before she was gone forever…. or before I had to continue my walk… one thing I thought of   So many amazing things are hiding in plain sight. One way to discover them is to ignore their context — to block the bigger picture — and to let yourself drown in the details.

the challenge I was planning to go on a hike outside the city today, and the Prism I got was a perfect fit. When playing Where No One Has Gone Before I should find a spot with a unique point of view and play with a Seed there.
