Linear Observation


Lines drawn from here to there,

how predictable

~ feet motioned ~

one in front of the next,

left to right,

outlines stretched from black to white…

they keep on slipping by.

“A lot of people in our industry haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have.”- Steve Jobs

  1. I think, you refer to the best examples of good photography, because there is nothing more precious in picture, when make us think. I’m sure this is due to your sensitivity, which it is that, what help growing of intellect. As usual you are in top form. Warm smile for you!

    • You are kind Dear Dalloway… perhaps we are just wired to see and hear things with less linearity…sometimes things just don’t make sense when simple lines stare back at us. Whether it is sensitivity, empathy, or lack of ego; I will never be sure, and am happy to be wrong whichever way…
      We could never see the world two dimensionally.

      I could die poor in riches or be buried in wealth one day, but I will always choose to be rich in raw emotion… as for a forward-march into a next life, toeing the line – I don’t really believe in a “better life” after this one if I just dot my ”i’s” or cross my ”t’s” on Sundays while trying to fit somewhere into an x / y axis. The idea of an afterlife would be incredible if I could return as my cat of course 😉

      “Ancient dissectionists spoke of the auditory nerve being divided into three or more pathways deep in the brain. They surmised that the ear was meant , therefore, to hear at three different levels. One pathway was said to hear the mundane conversations of the world. A second pathway apprehended learning and art. And the third pathway existed so the soul itself might hear guidance and gain knowledge… Clarissa P Estes”

      A warm fire-side smile for you and warmer wishes for a warm evening too.

  2. I just love that image… saw it when you posted it but did not have time to comment (ugh, busy weeks)…
    the fence reminds me for some reason of a musical sheet, a staff you know, the lines where you write musical notation… and the man is like a note… crazy lol 🙂

    • 🙂 thank you Alexandra – your comment made me smile. great imagination – maybe this guy is a Middle C… on his way to reaching his crescendo?! who can say? 😉
