Focal Length:14.3mm
Shutter:1/0 sec

So this is what the girl in last week’s post saw through her camera, or rather it’s what I saw through my camera.

Looking at the sky can be a nice activity, especially when there is some movement of clouds. Looking at the sky through a fixed frame is even more interesting. It makes you acutely aware of the drifting clouds, as they slowly come moving into the frame and out again, subtly changing form during their passage. It makes you aware of time; looking like this is first of all an activity in time.

A profound look in space and time: an experience that can not be captured in a still photograph.

I have used the photo in my film Still Dance of Life in Time and Space.
