Perception

Sometimes I wonder how differently people see the world. I don’t mean what they actually are looking at, but what is their focal point?

For example, the picture below, is a photo I took today. A rainy day in Dunfermline. Now, my focus was the town clock, which is where the town centre is located. It is a building that stands out in the centre of Dunfermline. But, whilst my intention was to focus on the City Chambers and it’s big clock, the first thing that everyone else sees are the ‘To Let’ signs that hang outside the empty shops.

It is pretty strange when you start thinking about people’s individual perception on things. When I was younger, I thought what I thought, and anything else was simply wrong. But, that’s not right. People perceive things differently, and come up with their own conclusions.

I find that kind of beautiful really. That everyone perceives everything slightly differently. They have their own thoughts and feelings that could impact any choice they make. It all depends on how they view things.

    Not everyone sees the signs first — or even the clock tower. 🙂 For me, it’s the wet street; that’s bound to catch an eye tuned by a lifetime of seeing blacktop and gray concrete pavement.
