It's the Real Thing

"What we see depends mainly on what we look for." ~John Lubbock

There is for each of us a way of seeing that brings us into the present. To experience the world in this way is effortless as all natural things are, and yet arduous in that adhering to our vision is sometimes out of step with the rest of the world. To see the world only as others see it is to deny our true nature, serving only to destroy our sense of wholeness and integrity.

And so it was, on this rainy morning, when simply because the camera rode along on the seat beside me, that I saw what I was looking for. Color in the midst of clouds, pattern and shape in the shadows, and shimmering light on the dark pavement.

What the world wants to see. It's the real thing.
