Do you ever wish you could take a photo with your eyes and let someone see the world just as you did?
Maybe it was the way a group of birds scattered across the pink sky or a silvery sliver of the moon just making itself seen? Perhaps it was the way the setting sun was captured in the cupping of leaves blowing in the wind? I find very often that I want to pull over and capture what I’m looking at only to discover later on that the breadth and dimension of whatever that thing was – is absent from the photo.
Is that the “soul” that is missing? That intangible thing that breaths the life into something?
Beyond being able to capture the life that you observe in a photo ~ how many times can two people be in the same place at the same time and see things completely differently? Or maybe one of you didn’t see something at all?
This makes me think that seeing things goes way beyond just what you do with your eyes.
Deep thoughts for a Thursday after-dinner ride.
