In Costa Rica I spent a fair bit of time both sketching and photographing the seeds on the many palm trees that grew there.

Up to this point I was always taking photos of everything. But at this point I has started sketching again and when I saw these seeds the first thing I thought of was to sketch it. But there wasn’t time. Shit! Then I realized I could take a picture. This was a major change in thought processes; my first thought was to sketch, not take a photo. Major mindset change!Palm Seeds, MexicoMore of Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Seeds
