PhotoHunt : View

My entry for this week is late as we were out during the weekend. Better late than never.


“Unfortunately, our senses are limited, therefore our view of the world is limited. This is not a problem unless we start believing that what we perceive is all there is to be perceived. It is not.” – Peter McWilliams

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this week’s theme was how we all differ in our views about life and the world around us. So I wanted to share the photo and message above. Our perspective on things is often limited to our learnings and experiences, and often it is just part and parcel of a bigger picture. It is not a complete and clear image of what life really is about.

Photo taken at Boracay, 2005. The effect was a result of some moisture that built up on the lens due to the airconditioning of our room.

PH#8. Photohuntin’ since August 2008.

  1. The condensation on the lens made for an interesting view that you will probably never be able to reproduce. It is much like your description of view. The ‘real’ view was clouded by the condensation much as the ‘real’ view of things around us may be clouded as we look at them through the lens of our own experiences. Ironically, at times those experiences may make us see the ‘real’ view more clearly or at least become aware of specific aspects of the view that we may have overlooked before.
