This series of photos were taken on my little cell phone (no it is not a smart phone :)) during my lunch time walk along Capital Lake in Olympia, Washington.
They are in order from top to bottom; a negative image, black and white image, sepia image, aqua image and the full color image.Â It was an overcast day, very little light.
The different versions got me to thinking about perspectives and how colors impact our vision.Â Both externally and internally, as different colors, shades and hues cause different emotional reactions.
Each photo of the same scene has a completely different feel to it.Â The lenses of how we view life also color our perception.Â Do we see colors dimly?Â Vividly?Â How does that impact our own beliefs and perspectives?
There are colors all around us and many different shades, hues that impact our vision.Â We must open our eyes to see the kaleidoscope of colors and allow them to touch our hearts no matter how small. ~M
I love this Mark! The very first one is my favorite! It feels cold and icy and full of adventure. I need an adventure! 😉 It is so true how things get muddied up by our vision of things. Love this!
It is interesting how the different colors give a whole different vibe! Adventure sounds good to me!
The different colors and talk of visions made me think of this scripture:
Where there is no vision, the people perish : but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. (Proverbs 29:18 KJV)… How we see things is so very important… Do we have revelation when we look about? Or do we see nothing, as we focus only on the here and now? Where there is no vision, the people perish…
Great post, you made me think. 🙂
Thanks, it made me thing also about things. I like the scripture you mentioned and it is about perspective and keeping our eyes, minds and heart focused on God, right?
Beautiful Captures – thanks so much for sharing:)
Thank you and you are very welcome!
Deep observations from a lunchtime walk, and great photos.
Just taking a moment to get away from the noise of life, thanks so much!
