Innocent Eyes

"Children make you want to start life over."
— Muhammad Ali

I marvel at the way an infant can observe the world around them as new and wonderful and even the most simple pleasure as play. I would gain much from the opportunity to have an infant guide me in relearning this skill, though I would never wish to be a parent to anything more complicated than a cat.

Stone Silhouette

One of the fascinating things about art, to me, is that it has so much potential for interpretation. Statues and figures even more so, for I find that being three-dimensional, they can change so markedly based on perspective and how much or how little one places within their field of vision at one time.

Today’s photo is, for me, a new interpretation of a figure I’ve photographed previously but have never been happy with the results. This time, however, the sky, shadows and my close-up perspective rendered an emotion I hadn’t been able to see, feel or capture before.

Peculiar Angles of Observation

. . . I do not see how it is possible that creatures in such different positions and with such different powers as human individuals are, should have exactly the same functions nor should we be expected to work out identical solutions. Each, from his peculiar angle of observation, takes in a certain sphere of fact and trouble, which each must deal with in a unique manner.
– William James
American Philosopher and Psychologist, leader of the philosophical movement of Pragmatism, 1842-1910
