Do you see Felix?
In my post Seeing Beyond earlier this week I made a point of training our eyes to see beyond the obvious. In a way to unlearn the usual way of perceiving the world around us. If we do so a completely new world will open up for us – and when talking about photography, a completely new and exciting array of image will come out of it as a result.
If you are up for it, I would like to challenge you. Go out there and photograph and create photos where the subject is not what is seems to be. Make a photo where the viewer will see something different and surprising, where a rock has turned into an animal, where the fur of a cat has turned into a forest, where spilled milk looks like a river running through a landscape, or… The point is to surprise and make us see beyond the obvious.
If you are up for the challenge, and whenever you have a photograph with a different perspective on the world, please post a link to the photo beneath. After a couple of weeks, I will compile the results and showcase the photos in a post here on this blog.
Are you ready to give it a try?
