Whatever your eye falls on – for it will fall on what you love – will lead you to the questions of your life, the questions that are incumbent upon you to answer, because that is how the mind works in concert with the eye. The things of this world draw us where we need to go.
― Mary Rose O’Reilley, The Barn at the End of the World: The Apprenticeship of a Quaker, Buddhist Shepherd
As a photographer, and a mindful one to boot, this quote seems like excellent guidance with regard to photographic subjects and self enquiry. Note to self – When following a mindful photography practice, where the seeing is my anchor, I will notice what it is that I am drawn to. For in that space lies opportunity, discovery and self awareness.
The photos below are a selection from this morning’s practice. I note some familiar themes, of shadows, dazzling light and triangles, and wonder about the glimpse of the castle.
