Hi Leanne,

Interesting observations about observations, and images.

Have you ever noticed how seeing from a train is so much dependent on where you sit?

When you are sitting facing towards the front of the train, images suddenly appear and disappear before you can see them consciously. Only afterwards you sometimes realize what you saw.

When you are sitting facing the rear of the train, images still appear suddenly but you can continue observing until they disappear in the distance.

Photography sometimes is similar, especially on the street: sometimes you have to quickly react and take an image only to be able to check what you actually got later. Sometimes we are able to work a scene and observe a developing situation, reflect on it and consciously create the image that best describes what we want it to.

How do you work best?
