Wednesday: What Do You See? 

2 Sep

What we do see depends mainly on what we look for. … In the same field the farmer will notice the crop, the geologists the fossils, botanists the flowers, artists the colouring, sportmen the cover for the game.
Though we may all look at the same things, it does not all follow that we should see them.~John Lubbock, The Beauties of Nature and the Wonders of the World We Live in

I tend to see things a little differently than most people. It could be my artist’s eye or my writer”s imagination, or perhaps I was dropped on my head as a young child. (Inside joke…other sister.) But, any way you look at it, I probably look at it differently. 

Here’s a photo of bark on a tree trunk. What do you see? 

  
Isn’t it amazing? Squint your eyes a little. I would tell you what I see, but that would spoil your perception. 

Again, you must remember that I see faces in the brownie mix! 

  See, I told ya!
