Reading! What more can I say.
There’s a book out called “Zen Camera” that I just ordered. It links mindful thinking with photography. This image is my first under the influence of that book. It’s a feeble attempt to question what’s the real subject of this photograph.
How about the lock on the chain?
I normally don’t endorse anything. But I’m currently re-reading this book by Alan Watts and I really find it really powerful. Probably more so than before. To make matters even better it’s an easy read as well. For us creative types, I definitely think it should be on your reading list.
I’m drawn to people reading paper books. No kindles, no Ipads just those old-fashioned things that we grind up pine trees to make. I think it’s partly because this digital world we now find ourselves in seems increasingly overwhelming.
For a couple of years now I’ve been badly addicted to Facebook. It’s a big black hole. A time waster without equal.
It’s time to cut back on all my digital time wasters!
I know it’s one of those analog things with floppy pages that’s made from wood pulp of all things. To see it out in public is always a shock. It’s so much bigger than those little flat electronic gadgets that most people use today. This guy must be a throwback from the dark ages.
What I really don’t understand is he actually seems very interested in looking at that old fashioned thing. Is it just possible that what he’s doing is enjoyable?
