Eenzaamheid in een wereld van Communicatie

Wij hebben het hier al gehad over de vele mogelijkheden van de sociale media en hoe mensen daar wel heel wat sociale contacten mogen hebben of zogenaamde “vrienden”, maar waar men toch in eenzaamheid achter blijft.

Jac vertelt

Technologie biedt kansen voor snelle communicatie, maar vervreemding en eenzaamheid loeren om de hoek.
Het scherm houdt ons weg van direct contact met elkaar en met de natuur. Het internet versterkt eerder onze eigen opvattingen, dan dat het ons echte wijsheid zal brengen. Daarvoor moeten we offline gaan. Stilte zoeken. Ons hoofd leegmaken. In het nu komen. Want duurzame relaties vragen tijd, zorg, beschikbaarheid en aandacht.

Jaco’s kleinzoon zegt

Smartphones zijn vandaag een middel om de gekste apps uit te testen of via sociale media met elkaar in contact te blijven. Maar eigenlijk zorgen ze ervoor dat we letterlijk afgeschermd worden van de ander. Ze leiden ons vooral ook heel erg af van de essentie. Voor mij is dat de vorming van mijn persoonlijkheid en het ook bewuster zijn van de omgeving en de natuur rondom mij. Ik betrap mezelf ook op overbodig gebruik van mijn smartphone, maar probeer ermee om te gaan zonder constante afleiding.

Jaco’s vader Steven zegt dan verder

Bij ons dus geen schermen rond de tafel. In alle rust en zonder afleiding luisteren naar elkaar, naar elkaars verhalen met oog voor de kleine nuances.
Daar laten we geen scherm tussenkomen, al is de verleiding in tijden van deadlines soms wel groot. Een keertje vaker bellen in plaats van mailen, kan ook wonderen doen.
Scherm uit. Oorcontact aan!

Looking at Flowers through a Macro Lens

For people who have not a beautiful garden or do not have the opportunity to move around and to get to a garden it is a blessing that they may find the modern tools of the computer and internet by which the world can come unto their doorstep, in case they have enough money to pay for that internet.

For those who look forward to see those beauties it is a blessing that there are so many photographers willing to share that what is unreachable for them. With gratitude we too want to share the macro visions and that what others can capture to portray the beauty of this miraculous world.

Thanks to all those people who allow their articles and photo’s to be reblogged and for us to give so many more people the opportunity to come to know those ‘magicians’ who can use a camera so handy.

She manages to bring the viewer in different moods by the different shades of light which may make her to create great photos. Have also a look at “Love to be by the seaside” where she shows how she can play with that light.

We may say that

the photograph is an object resulting from a physical and chemical process

but behind the lens of the camera has to be the very good eye of an artistic person to bring magic on the two dimensional paper.

  • Also

The object has been created but before it can be experienced by a viewer, it must undergo more changes. First and foremost, it must be developed and most likely printed. Finally, it should be mounted and displayed, which provides the photograph with context. All of these additional changes can add or detract from the object in various ways, but the original information present in the photograph (artistic manipulation not withstanding) has not changed. It is still a record of what was in front of the lens when the photo was taken. {A Photograph is an Experience}

  • Most photography not anymore the exchange of chemicals, but photons striking a silicon chip and are read as an electrical signal, which gets encoded digitally.

Though digital, this is still an imprint of the light that entered through the lens. The light initiated a physical process that resulted in a representation of itself, albeit in binary code. The light gets ‘encoded’ regardless if that information is encoded in silver halide crystals or in bits. So is this the essence of a photograph, information that can be decoded into a visual medium? {A Photograph is an Experience}

  • Without the experienced and qualified eye even the most expensive digital camera is nothing.

Luckily photography is still an art-form where we do need an artist behind the lens.
