“With time and experience comes a different perception of what’s going on around you.” ~ Chris Robinson
Everything in this photo is a reflection except for a few random small leaves floating on the water’s surface. Our minds want the world around us to make sense so often it’ll interpret things in a way which initially seems to do so, only later integrating contradicting details which may demand a change in our frame of reference.
However, we learn, and as photographer we gain experience in interpreting according to our vision and our assumptions what is before us and our minds adjust to the new normal. I would like to think this would mean we learn to see more, but I wonder if it could also mean we might see less or at least view things only as we believe it ought to be — rigidity.
Is it possible to clear the “mind cache,” so to speak, and see again with at least some of the innocence of a child — thoughts?
