On Seeing #1

Emile Zola declared, "In my view you cannot claim to have really seen something until you have photographed it". But in spending so much time photographing things in one way or another, I spend a lot of time wondering if I have, in fact, lost that ability to really see. Everything has become a minute calculation of space or movement, an echo of a past image or a mental snapshot of an image to come.
