Contemplative photography encourages one to look at the world in a fresh way. There are many beautiful things to see but, as busy humans, we spend our days thinking, running, jumping, shouting, driving and seldom stop to simply look and appreciate the world around us.

The first assignment when studying contemplative photography is to learn how to block the continuous dialogue that occurs when we see something. We are told to go and seek perceptions that comprise only of colour.

Here are some images from that assignment taken during a stroll down Quinpool Road in Halifax.
