The Eye and the Camera

Often, the lens of a camera captures what the lens of the eye ignores.


For example, in this tangle, I did not blend the shading. To the naked eye, the 3.5 inch square of paper is small enough where, at reading distance, the drawing looks just fine. But when viewed on a computer monitor or tablet, and often at a size larger than the actual art work, all the little imperfections come to light, and the unblended shading is obvious.


I wonder what image I  project to the world as compared with the image I have of myself. How close is my self-image to what others see? How closely do others look at me and find flaws that may be hidden from my own self-perception? Have I remembered to blend the shading intended to hide my inadequacies?

Something to ponder… Something on which to meditate, perhaps.
