Title • through the middle window

While I’m not convinced that this is all that great a shot I’ve put it up because, for me, it marks a transition – from someone who takes photographs, to someone who sees them. Not too many weeks ago I would have been able to tell you what was behind this window, because I would have looked at it first and photographed it second. But, with this shot, I didn’t do that – all I saw was the photograph. And I’ve noticed this happening more and more frequently; that I look at the world in a different way, and notice different things. And I think this is a good thing, and at the very least it makes the world a much more interesting place.

And on an unrelated note: we’re currently spending a few days decorating (new flooring in the kitchen, wallpapering, painting, and so on), and while I’ll still be putting stuff up I doubt that I’ll have time to visit elsewhere – I’ll catch up with everyone later in the week.
