Seeing Drala is seeing things as they are; on the world’s terms, not ours. We all have ideas and concepts about what is good/bad, pretty/ugly, worthy of photographing/not worthy of photographing. This contemplative practice helps us learn to appreciate everything that exists without our habitual overlay of concepts.of eyes. As if you were seeing and experiencing color, light and form (and so much more) for the very first time. The moment we connect with our perceptions, a gap appears in our mind that completely frees us from our habitual thinking. Nothing else exists except the present moment.
This week we have been asked to focus on colour and notice what colour pops out to us. The course does not allow for any post processing work such as photoshop etc and is very much about allowing simplicity and space into your photos. So here goes for this week:
|A pop of red berries against a very blue November Sky
|Sunlight streaming thorugh my front door to illuminate the orange painted porch walls
|I liked the simplicty of this, the relationship between the leaf and berry, and their own colours.
|I devaited slightly with this! I just liked the simplicity of finding a fallen leaf resting on the pavement.
