Shanghai facade - another view
Shanghai, China, May 2007 [Click to embiggen]
Sometimes, a second look at the same scene can result in a very different outcome. I hope you'll humor me by clicking back on this image. Go ahead, I'll wait.
[Tick, tock, tick, tock...]
And we're back.
Color, angle and distance: All changed. Consequently, I ended up with two very different pictures despite the fact that the same person took them mere seconds apart. Sometimes, we see different things when we stand in different places and scrunch our eyes just so.
As I look at these two photos side-by-side, I keep thinking that the lesson here applies to more than mere pictures.
Your turn: Opinion, perspective, and our unwillingness to budge even when the context is changed. Please discuss.
