At another year's closing

To end the year, another unattributed quote. (I have plenty - attributed and unattributed - they just seem to collect.)

"We are on an endless journey into the infinity of God."

The corollary of this is that there can be no end and that simply being on the road should be everything for which one can hope.

Seeing Right Angles

I saw this in an exhibition in North Wales over a year ago and was then fortunate enough to find it online at the photographer's website. This image, like others produced by the artist Neil Coombs very much appeals to my fascination with right angles and the space they confine. As his other photographs also show, Coombs sees things within the broader canvas of everyday sight and captures those fragments within the confines of an image.

Changing the Universe

The following quote (unattributed) is quite literally true:

"With every thought you have, the universe is a different place."

Everytime you have a thought - everytime something 'crosses your mind' - the universe is changed. The way it is configured, it's internal state is altered in some way. Be it ever so infinitessimal, it is nevertheless different. So each one of us has a bearing on the universe and if the butterfly effect is correct, we may even have an effect.

Split second timing

A  friend shared a page from the eddenya website on Facebook the other day. It's a page of 50 images taken at just that moment when something unexpectedly funny is happening. Sometimes the event occurs only in that split second that the camera's shutter goes and captures what the photographer probably doesn't realise they have got until reviewing the picture afterwards.The image below (from that page) isn't quite in that mode but it made me laugh out loud when I saw what a faux pas Starbucks had performed on itself.
