Joe and I made our way to the Flora and Fauna exhibit at the National Gallery and while rolling around found this picture called: A Blind Man in His Garden, Homer, Alaska, July 1984 by Joel Sternfeld. I admit to spending a lot of time looking at this picture. I kept trying to figure out what was being said to me, if anything was being said at all.
Questions popped around in my head:\
Why did the artist tell us that the man was blind? Is that an important aspect of the picture? If it is an important aspect of the picture, why?
And that my dear friends is my essay question for you all. I've had a long day, and am very tired, I'd like to think on this some more and this time respond to your comments rather than write mine out firsts.
So, the clock is ticking, get your fingers poised over the keyboard ... go!
