For any of you who are looking for an approach to photography that focuses on slowing down and observing the natural world around us from a new perspective, Chris Orwig has a fantastic book called Visual Poetry (2010, New Riders). Freeman Patterson called photography the "art of seeing" and Dorothea Lange gave a wonderful description of  the camera as  "a tool for learning how to see without a camera".  Chris Orwig carries on where they left off, and provides a wonderful series of "workshops"  that focus on expressing your creativity and learning to pause and see the world, eyes wide open. Enjoy!
