Among the earrings that I made yesterday, is this pair. As I made them, I played with the balance of round and square, long and short, aqua and green.
Tonight as I photographed them, I struggled to balance dark and light. This flashless photo dulls my pale teal fleece, but shows the colors of the beads.
Too late for natural light, I took them outside to the plum tree, and hung them among the blossoms. How they shine against the darkening sky, illuminated by the camera's flash.
None of these pictures shows them as I saw them, with my eyes, bathed in sunny morning light.
I worry that our society is failing to teach its citizens to look at the world through many lenses, from many angles, illuminating their thoughts with understanding of many viewpoints.
What do these earrings really look like? I wish you could see them with your own eyes, and tell me what you see.
