Photographer's Note

I didn’t intend to post this photograph. But I thought there was something missing in my PREVIOUS one, that had to be caught one way or the other. This will allow me to have a restful sleep, and hopefully will please some of you among whom Jorrit ( Proxilva ).

Most of us rely on our visual perception (what they see) to connect ourselves to the surrounding world. That is in fact important, but the light at its origin can be a source of misunderstanding and illusion. Some other senses are far more connected to reality.

If I had to chose, I would prefer to be blind rather than deaf , because there is no landscape or face on Earth that could replace the sound of music or the voice of the ones I love in my interior world. (sorry to those who think photography is a major art, which is not).

Another sense that we often forget to talk about is touching. Touching with our skin, our flesh, our hands, our fingers. What’s the use of seeing the graphical aesthetic of a texture, if we can’t touch it and perceive with our body what it feels like?

Our fingers move and turn like dancers, and the dance in which they excel is called discovery. We can close our eyes, and still perceive life in all its intensity. But if we’re not able to touch the skin of someone else or to feel the drops of rain on our face, we’re no longer part of this world.
