We each have our own individual, unique filters and frames. This individuality results in our seeing the world—and people, situations, and circumstances in the world—in very different ways. I don't always attend to, construe, or notice what you do. Of course, as most of us probably know well, these differences can lead to conflict.
I recently posted about filters and frames at Brains on Purpose, and included a number of photos using various filters, frames, and apps to illustrate how one scene can have many versions or interpretations. That post at Brains on Purpose received a positive response from readers so I decided to post another series of shots, this time here at idealawg.
Take a look below at the various portrayals of garbage containers waiting on the street for the disposal truck. (Click on photos for larger versions.) Do the different renderings cause you to focus on varying places in the photo; imagine a different story; shift your responses, attitudes, or feelings?
Before taking a look, I hope you read the post at Brains on Purpose.
Note (added April 28, 2013): Here's information about a related workshop coming up later this year: "Upcoming seminar—Snap to Attention: Increasing Self-Awareness with Your Smartphone’s Camera" (idealawg).
