i love sky gazing, especially when the clouds form any odds creature
Me too. =)
I love clouds, some people might say it’s because I am one
Haha, that sounds interesting. What makes you a cloud? =)
[...] “The Observer” by Jenny [...]
I have a small and hidden interest for clouds and the sky. I’ve always wanted to photograph them but it seems that whenever there’s a beautiful sky, I’m missing my camera.
Haha, I know what you mean. I’ve had my share of those moments too.
I have enjoyed reading your site so I’ve nominated you for the Illuminating Blogger Award for illuminating, informative blog content. You can check out the details at my site … http://foodstoriesblog.com/illuminating-blogger-award/ … Hope you’re having a great Memorial Day weekend!
Wonderful sense of openness.
Who or What is The Observer?
That’s the question that makes this picture a tad bit ominous
A few lonely, small clouds sails (or stands absolutley still, frozen) at the bottom, while the major part of the picture is filled up with the strong presence of the eternal sky.
Is it a cold or warm blue?
What is it that “observes” me?
Is it “someone” or “somewhat”?
An invisible omnipresent God hiding behind the azure watching my life down here on earth? Or is the cloud the observer – or something/someone hiding within that cloud?
Is The Observer some kind of satellite in orbit around earth that captures or registers my every move?
Is it an UFO? Some visitor from outer space?
Or am I – the viewer – The Observer?
I like this picture alot because it gets my mind going, and it doesn’t let my imagination rest or settle on a definite interpretation.
One of your best pictures, no doubt.
I’m very pleased that The Observer evokes such thoughts and emotions.
Interesting thing is that most of us human beings like to observe, because observing leads to analyzing that leads to “knowledge” which means power. I put knowledge in quotation marks because how do we really know that facts are correct, truthful and real? I don’t know about scientific facts but all kinds of knowledge ought to be more or less questioned.
Back to The Observer. What I think that we tend to forget is that we might be the ones observed too.
Now that is interesting. Because that is how I, in a way, perceive The Observer.
It’s an artwork that poses the question, but without providing an answer. At least not an immediate one. But rather an answer that requires an active participation and a process of thought from the viewer.
That is also what great art is about, I believe. Engagement, emotion, experience, self-reflection and deepened understanding.
The answer (and reward) will hopefully take the form of a the revelation within oneself.
I like the fact that there is no answer to The Observer. Mystery and the intangible is much more enticing and eternal. I do see the way you think though. Your thoughts aim at personal and spiritual growth. It’s funny how we perceive the one and same object in different manners.
You’re right in all respects.
And in The Observer the feeling of mystery surely will remain with the viewer, unreachable for any definite solution or answer.
