What do you see?


Whereas some people may see just an old lamp finial, I see something amazingly beautiful, delicate and quite intimate.


Isn’t it interesting how the same object appears vastly different when it is placed against a background absorbing the light?
One object, seen in two different ways–maybe we should be mindful of such when we view the people around us. Perhaps it all just depends on the setting or the background…..
