Unseen World Statement

We travel through life with unseeing eyes. Our thoughts focus on other topics and we limit our visual perceptions. Usually we impose a layer of abstraction upon our visual experience, filtering it and placing it within our mental framework as an idealized memory.

Photographing is a voyage of discovery. I try to mindfully perceive the space of my environs, objects in that space and their passage through time —almost as if I were seeing them for the very first time. This kind of perception is a meditative experience—a state of mind—an openness to the possibilities.

In this state, sometimes a fleeting glimpse of the unseen world is revealed to me. It feels like a gift from the cosmos or the Tao. I am grateful. Let me share it with you.
