I have been recently reminded that everyone sees things differently. This is not earth shattering news, but a useful thing to remember as an amateur photographer. I find it a challenge to reconcile my way of seeing things while wandering through an exhibition, whether it is a solo artist, small group (such as this one) or a large number of individual images. Many will be far above my level of skill or depth of understanding. Some I will just not get at all despite the praises heaped on by others.
The reminder has come with a resolution to learn to see again; disposing of the desire to create a masterpiece with the camera in hand. Rather I hope to dedicate as along as it takes to learn and refine my own visual vocabulary. I like symmetry, design and graphics. I like sharp. I can't see color well. I don't do blurry. I shall apologize in advance for the visually basic images that may show up on my rotation here at aGathering, but I invite your comments on my journey back to visual basics.
