One of the things I love about the hubs is that he sees things I don’t, or perhaps it is that he sees things differently from me. He expands my view of the world around me, even when I’m not with him.

This image popped up first in his Flickr feed and totally grabbed my eyes and my thoughts. The thing, I’ve stood in that spot, or close to it and remember feeling amazed, but…

But yeah, he invites me to see the world through eyes not mine. That’s a gift, IMHO.

Is a picture worth one thousand words? Not sure I totally believe that because words are my medium, but a picture can say a lot without words.

It is my inclination to rush in and fill this space with words. To tell you how this image makes me feel, but there is also a part of me saying, “Wait. Let them look and figure out what it says to them.”

So even though this is my blog, it doesn’t always have to be about me. Haha

So what do you feel when you see this image? Where does it take your thoughts? When I get some comments, I’ll come back and share what it meant to me. 🙂 And besides, you know I love comments so much that I pick a favorite to receive my monthly AnaBanana gift basket ($25 value).  Recipient is announced the first blog post of the new month.

Perilously yours,

Pauline

P.S. In honor of looking and seeing, I’ll end with Specters in the Storm today (inside the Edge of Never boxed set), because both Prudence and Ernest have some issues with seeing, processing and believing. Besides, its OUT. Yay!

    I see an exclamation point! The Flatiron Building was considered an engineering and artistic treasure when it was first built. It is still highly regarded among the creations of man. To me, in this picture, it looks like the staff of an exclamation mark, the point being the bush with the red flowers – a creation of nature. See how the contrast is punctuated and the beauty of both are enhanced when they are brought together!

      Gravity has a VERY good grip on me these days. After living so many years at sea level it is embarrassing walking up too many steps! It’s kind of a cool building, I have to say. I enjoyed looking at it for real, but the hubs photo kind of grabs my imagination. Hmmm….

    I see one of the earliest skyscrapers in North America. In the early days, this was as tall as they could build – the elevator hadn’t been invented yet, and no one wanted to walk up 10 flights of stairs every day! Fun fact I learned while researching Amazing Feats of Civil Engineering. 🙂
