I rediscovered this image recently when I was asked to bring some work which perhaps had not done as well as I would have liked at its first viewing.
This one was too blurry and a bit hard to understand – so I was told.
However I have always liked it, as for me it speaks of chilling out on a relaxed summers day with nothing in particular to do. That is exactly how I was when I made it.
I was delighted when the audience who viewed it this time (all aGatherers) saw exactly what I was on about.
From this I made two conclusions.
Firstly on this blog we have produced a wonderful audience for ourselves. By looking each day at a range of images from each other we have gained an understanding of the way each of us speaks and we are receptive to the messages being sent.
Secondly, I think at times you have to pick your audience. Sometimes, no matter how well crafted or how clear the vision in a picture is, some people just won't like it and won't bother to really look.
