the garden (for sale)
On this Sunday I finally update my see page with a few more photographs. Right now I would rather be outside somewhere, but I have to do this since I put myself in a window. No, not the type in the red-light district, but in Lower Main road Observatory... Why? Who knows? I have a job that I am going to tomorrow and at the end of the month I will be paid my salary....It’s because I enjoy my art. I enjoy sharing my photographs, my music and I enjoy blogging. It’s my little outlet and (guess to be silly) I could also say my little garden to escape to. I like it when my number of hits go up. Funny even if they didn’t I would still be doing this. We as humans can find reasons to make us happy! And this is mine.
This reminds me of an experiment on happiness. Two groups of students were taken through a photographic course, learned to print their own work in a dark room and at the end they could only choose their best 2 prints that would then be printed on a big scale and framed. The one print the academy would keep for records and the other they could take home. The first group was told they have time to change their mind about the choice they made; the second group had to choose there and then and were not able to come back and decide on the other photo. After some time their happiness was tested. The group that had a choice were not as happy with the print as the group that had no choice. Why...second guessing themselves. The group that was happiest obviously in our human nature told themselves...."Nah the pic I didn't choose sucked!" That’s just the way we are. Its apparently because we as humans have the ability to predict a future outcome or wonder about it...Not sure how scientists decided that animals cannot do that either (would love to meet the person that can speak dog or cat to ask and test them) Anyway, we can and do this all the time and make this work in our benefit or not. Not, is what most of us do... I see many outcomes from putting myself in a window and obviously hope, but it doesn’t matter. I have had to walk past it twice today on my way home and you know what ...I smiled :) And it was worth it! ....I printed them for my own place. While I had to wait for my new home to be finished I asked if I could hang them up there since they were just collecting dust...I was put on a waiting list, have already moved in, but there they are hanging in the window anyway.
So updating this blog entry just to let anyone, that jotted down my web address from the street , know.... I took these photographs standing in one spot. Three shots with my old Zenith E just after then rain... Its called “the garden” and not the garden of Eden where all evil started but my own little vice where I get to go and play. So the garden is for sale and if not interested in buying hope you still tag along and come and play along with me on my journey through life as a I blog along the way.
