They’re all the same height?
Though I’ve cropped away some of the visual clues that would add more dimensional context, we just know from experience that these lamps are all the same size and height. We take it for granted. Yet it’s something we had to learn—and we learn as young children—how to understand our visual world with a sense of perspective.
Call it cognitive science or a beginner’s art lesson. It’s interesting either way.
The pleasure of photo challenges is how they get us to tune our seeing eye and mind to a particular prompt. This evening I took this photograph of a scene that before now, I passed without a glance. I look forward to noticing with more awareness many ways of seeing perspective. I’m already enjoying a variety of interpretations and responses being posted by others you can find here.
