Just think about it! (26)

In The Little Book of Contemplative Photography, the author, Howard Zehr,  suggests that once a week we spend at least 10 minutes with a selected photograph and then, he instructs;

‘As you do, consider three topics in this order:

1   I see (Describe: examine each object, each detail, the light etc.  Associate: what are you reminded of by the shapes, juxtapositions etc?)

2   I feel (What do you feel as you look at the image?)

3   I think (Interpret and analyse)’

  1. That’s great! Thanks for sharing, Louis! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  2. That would be a good exercise, and not so easy in this age of a glut of photographs and a sped-up lifestyle. It seem to me that #2 is the aspect most of us fall short on – not all of us by any means, but many.

    • I do agree Lynn. Often we’re in too much of a hurry, and that doesn’t do justice to the art work or its creator. And certainly ‘feeling’ is the dimension that is most neglected.
