Do you know when to trust what you see or hear? Take a close look this photo and let your Spidey Sense guide you.
Susan says, “When do you trust what your eyes tell you and when should you doubt. In this photo, Mt Hood looks like creamy white whipped cream floating in puffy clouds and the apple tree limbs look gnarly and dangerous. But are those assumptions true? Of course not! We all know that there is not one bit of threat contained in an apple tree limb, but on Mt Hood – danger lurks! This is an easy conclusion, but there are many situations when the truth is harder to determine. This might be a helpful photo to use in a presentation when the subject is perception, communication, or trusting your own instinct. In these troubled times, it is useful to take a moment and consider what might be right and what might be misleading. Here is a great photo to start the conversation.
Yes, You Can Trust Your Eyes.
Lucia says, “Interesting take on this photo, Susan. My aim was simply to create a frame within frame. It’s not as easy to make a photo of Mt. Hood as you would expect. Depending on where you’re standing, sometimes the mountain looms large in your sight and other times it looks small. We all know the mountain does not change size. It just looks that way. It’s the perspection that causes the illusion. This falls in line with what Susan is saying. Trust your eyes, but don’t be mislead.”
