Your world seems full of light and lightness – in the very best sense of the terms. In one life, perhaps it will be me shadowing you, just to explore something so different from all i know…
Have you ever considered becoming an author, Alessandro? You’d be a great one, I think. When I find your words written to me on something I’ve done, I feel you’ve wasted them. As though you cannot repeat them else where. Silly, really. But you write something so beautiful & then following your words, is a cartoon smiley face. Do you do that to make your words less true or to remove the shock of impact? It does lessen the impact. Promise me that when you write anything to anyone on the internet, that you leave off the smile. What you write or shoot, you should leave the impression of your thoughts & vision as they are, the smile implies that you yourself didn’t take them seriously.
I will tell you this though, I do see differently then you. If you cover your right eye, that is how I see. I’m legally blind in my right. My father, thank God, is an optometrist & noticed when I was 2 years of age-I would cover the eye with my hand when we went from dark to light. He found that I had a lazy eye. With my cute blond curls & big blue eyes, he would cover my good eye with a pirate’s eye patch, with skull & crossbones printed on it. Or he would put a hard contact lens in my bad eye to make it work. He saved me from having an eye that floats & brought my vision up to 20/40 in my right. Alas, in adulthood, it makes me sick to my stomach to make that eye “see” & its at 20/400. My brain suppresses what that eye “sees”. Maybe that is why my images contain such a contrast between light & dark, because I perceive my world’s dimensions through light & shadow. I do not see in 3D.
One day, buy an eye patch & see if you see the world the way I do. That would be a fun experiment. I do love your images & words & to prove it. I am both complimenting myself & you by putting a quote on my blog today of the words written above.
& where is my DAMN print?!?
P.s. I still have your email up b/c i’ve not bought photo paper good enough to print your changes of Sophie. But I showed it to her last night & she asked,” Why did Alessandro chose “freckles” as the password?” I told her because of the ones given to her by her genes & the others given to her by the sun through the hat.
Everyone in the family knows your name. How wonderful that I can have a friend on the other side of the world.
