weekly photo challenge: shine

Nancy’s photo challenge for this week is: Shine, “Has the sunshine or any other light source caused you to stop because it’s highlighting something you didn’t notice before?”


The design of this building; that is, the way it’s structure invited light and shadow to play with it’s mirrors and windows, not only caused me to stop it also invited me to revisit the building at different times of the day to “be in awe” of how it reflected ongoing changes of the weather as well as the sun’s journey.

“… Do you know the primary difference between men and gods?”

“No, sir.”

“Gods don’t think they can become men.”

This image submitted for Robyn’s Seeing Differently challenge was found during a recent photo walk through an alley.

…our ordinary vision is limited…our conventional consensus of reality is not the only version of reality…the mind…in its attempt to provide meaning (security), continually rearranges the world to fit individual needs.  The failure to recognize the constructive nature of the mind can be a major obstacle to artistry and creativity.

“Thinking back then…we were just at that age when we knew a few things about ourselves – about who we were, how we were different from… – but hadn’t yet understood what any of it meant…by the time a moment like that comes along, there’s a part of you thats been waiting…there’s a whisper going at the back of your head… So you’re waiting, even if you don’t quite know it, waiting for the moment when you realize that you really are different…”

While walking through an area in Fort Collins, Colorado known as  “Old Town.” I was guided with an intention to be open to whatever offered an unique perspective.  It is my thought that this reflective image of a building’s entrance fits Robyn’s ‘See Differently’ challenge.
