Before you read on, take another look at the picture. what do you see?
Do you see the seahorse?
I didn't until someone pointed it to me. And yet it is sooooo obvious. The first thing the eye notices when looking at this picture. The only bright thing in the dark.
So, how come I did not see it? Because I knew I photographed the reflection of the moonlight in the quiet lake. And 'knowing' this is the moonlight, I failed to SEE the seahorse.
To see what is there, not what we think is there. Aaron Siskind was so right saying we must relax our beliefs.
And I think this stands true for more than just the white seahorse.
A long way ahead of me, but the road, ah the road is fascinating.
