has become in my eyes (pun intended) the most precious commodity or perhaps put differently, the true meaning of luxury or even better yet: bliss.
by real i mean none, nothing, no sound whatsoever. no wind, no rippling water, no birds and even less man-made sounds: nothing.
i don’t get to experience total silence very often but when it happens its like being hit with a brick but this brick’s a nice brick. the kind that knocks back all distractions, increases awareness and the power of thought and as a side-bonus, it makes me all tingly.
the last time silence happened was a few months ago on a fishing trip to the Scottish Highlands. i was too busy doing the tingly thing at the time to even think of photographing silence besides, it’s not like it would show.
it didn’t happen in the scene below but for some reason this image reminds me of the moment but then, images can only be about the past and they rarely make sounds. maybe that’s why i like them so much.
