A RL Brazilian documentary recommended to me by a SL friend inspired these images.
"Nineteen people with differing degrees of visual impairment - from mild nearsightedness to total blindness - discuss how they see themselves, how they see others and how they perceive the world. Writer and Nobel laureate José Saramago, musician Hermeto Paschoal, filmmaker Wim Wenders, blind Franco-Slovenian photographer Evgen Bavcar, neurologist Oliver Sacks, actress Marieta Severo, blind city councilman Arnaldo Godoy, among others, make personal and surprising revelations about various aspects of vision - the physiological working of the eye; the use of glasses and what it means about personality; the meaning of seeing or not seeing in a world saturated by images; and, also, the importance of emotions in transforming reality if, that is, there is such a thing common to all. Unusual images, of burning trees or empty deserts, link the interviews, which vary from deep to funny to poetic."

a great work and very well done ... with a lot of thinking and reflection of what we perceive as reality if it does exist :)

You've posed some interesting questions, Antonella, and the answers will definately vary.

Concerning SL, there is a great distortion of images, and I think that ultimately, we are drawn to certain people by their words and actions, rather than their "physical" appearance.

And sometimes... I think we chose to see what we like to see.

Ok, lol, I probably am not making much sense, but I should add that the pictures you took for this stream are all really great :-D

Thanks a lot Eves! Glad you liked it :-), did you make it to the The Wall show? Let me know what you thought about it, I am curious!
Thanks to you too Pante, and yes, you did make sense :-), and I agree, in the end even in a world where everyone is so so so "perfect" we do choose words and actions, maybe that explains why one of my oldest male friends inworld despite never having had a human appearance but a at first scary intimidating black wolf skin haha has been so successful with women ... although he has other theories about the issue, which I don't believe are quite the truth haha

La selección de frases es el primer acierto de su espléndido mirar. Roland Barthes escribió en su Retórica de la Imagen, que la pintura dice: "Yo he visto esto" y la fotografía: "Yo he estado allí" en algún punto enmedio de estos dos acertos están sus imagenes. Gracias por compartir este trabajo tan bello, una mirada que se mira mirar mirando.

¡Gracias Jano! :-) doblemente: por tu recomendación del documental que me encantó realmente y por tomarte el tiempo de comentar aquí. Y sí ... Barthes sigue siendo uno de los grandes teóricos sobre el tema de lo visual ... la fotografía, la moda ... :-)
