Since I began the study of contemplative photography I am often stopped during my day by perceptions. They can happen anytime and one happened this morning just before breakfast as I looked out my back door. The elements of the perception that caused me to run upstairs to get my camera were the deep black and white, the thin and heavy lines of the tree and the black round-oval shapes of the perched starlings.

” As children playing, splashing feet in the water, thinking about something we see, listening to someone speak, watching someone work, we do not yet recognize that we are being informed. The water rushes on and we see something clearly and are able to bring it to fruition. Every now and then we become informed”. Barbara J. Delory
