It's good to let things breathe in your imagination because often your initial response to it is not the best thought-through response. I savour little glimpses of life. Mine and those of people who turn me sideways and around. Friend or stranger. Even a child. (the world looks different from down there) Sometimes an author, photographer, artist. I let things saturate and incubate here. Hopefully, deeper meanings can percolate up and flower.

A Slice of Time, Experience Shared: A Wuanderful World

Point. Shoot. Post. A 'no-frills' photoblog. No commentary accompany the beautiful photos. Just short captions. Sometimes, none. Occasionally, a one-liner describes her relationship with the subject. As if to explain why it deserves her attention, and, by extension, ours.

The world through her eyes appears to be one idealised by the wonders and beauty of God's creation. From such a point of view, it's easy to see why words may sometimes be superflous or inadequate.

When her photographing eye magnifies the finer details of the Creator's artwork, it seems to aim at achieving an experiential quality. Lensing herself to capture interesting shapes, incredible colors and unique textures, she ocassionally manage to deliver a subtle sense of atmospherics... as if the objects/subjects were tangibly within our reach, or, like we were there.

And when things magnificently vast, immeasurable and unfathomable confront her, it is presented to us in the only way possible - a miniature of the exact opposite. The matchless majesty, beauty and splendor the natural eye held, gets reduced to a visibly manageable frame, and is reduced to a miniscule and pale replica.
The simple lesson we, doubtless, already know, is this: it is impossible to faithfully replicate Creation. Still, typical of all such panoramas, her celestial images strive hard to inspire. Nevertheless, not so much by design, but by default, they do not fail to captivate while pointing out a profound insight - the immense spatial proportions and the immeasurable immensity of the relationship between the Creator and the created.

The A Slice of Time, Experience Shared blog series is not motivated by any need or desire to please or displease any particular Photographing Eye. It is just a record of my own speculations about particular images I have found remarkable or thought-provoking. The observations are purely based on my own personal interpretations and intuitions.
