I was never a great musician and I am reliably informed that my singing is awful too (but it sounds just fine to me!). However, I do enjoy lovely music and find that the right tunes can really help when I am trying to concentrate and work hard on a task.
Elisa posed a musical challenge to interpret the song See the world by Gomez. I had not heard the music before and I really did not have any pictures which seemed to fit the theme. However, after a lot of thought, I have found the following photograph which I took on a recent tour in Tasmania and thought I could have a bit of fun with it!
Above is a photo I took of a lovely forest scene reflected in a pool. Without looking at the image below, think about what impresses you most about this image.
Seeing the world is really so reliant on how you interpret what you see as you go through life. Two individuals looking at the same scene, event, photo, image or movie can take a totally different message from it! What you will see depends critically on what is most important to you, the viewer.
The thing that really impressed me when I took it was that the water was very still – so still that the reflection was perfectly mirrored.
Now look at my photo again in the image below. What is different about this second photo?
Did you notice that one was upside down? Which one is the right way up? Did your assumption that all trees must obviously grow up (not down!) influence your choice? Or did you become immediately suspicious and start looking for something extra? What you interpreted is reflective of how you see the world!
It is quite coincidental that I have decided to use this image for this post, as Jake has chosen the theme Reflections for his Sunday Post topic as well! So you can check out lots more reflections at his blog as well as dropping by Elisa’s “Autumn in Bruges” site to post your interpretation of See the world! All of you who are musically inclined (or not, like me!) – why not put up your version of this challenging quest!
