What Stands Out Most To You

When you walk into a room, or a house, what do you notice first? What stands out most to you? I think that it depends on what your passion is, what you are interested in. For instance, if I was to walk into a room or a house, I would notice the pictures on the wall first. Or if I walked into a kitchen, I would probably focuse on the quotes and magnets on the fridge first. That's because my passion is photography, and writing. I'm pretty much a right brain. Bright, beautiful pictures and fonts catch my attention...Now, imagine you were entering this room for the first time:

(Note: I got that off the interenet, it's not a picture of my own!)

What stands out most to you? (You can answer in the comments, if you want to!) The first thing that caught my eye was the picture of the tree, then the carpet.
I think that it is so amazing, Jesus made everyone of us with a different passion, a different love. He did this because he has a special job for each of us, and it may seem silly that I take it as what things stand out most to you, but I think that it counts.
One thing is for sure - we were all meant to have great passion for God; without him we can do  nothing.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind. (Luke 10:27)

Popcorn - My Model

This is a post dedicated to my cockatiel, Popcorn. : ) He is a fabulous model (although only when he wants to be!) and I do plenty of pictures with him. You have already seen the Valentine one, but here are a few more...

Popcorn's Close Up by Tangerine-Tane

^ Popcorn's Close Up

Anyway, I've had some people ask me how I get him to pose - but the thing is, I don't, lol! He gets to choose when he will pose nicely and when he will refuse. So I don't really have have a lot of special techniques, but this is one that helps:
One of the most difficult things is to get Popcorn to hold still. But an easy trick is to let him play quietly and once I have the light ready, if he is in the right position,  I call his name in a sing-song voice and he looks at the me. So, he looks at the camera, and I can focus on his face. I then have a few seconds to capture his eyes and alert look. It works!
I used that trick in all of those photos up there.

Here is another picture of Popcorn that I am working on:
