Appearances are often deceiving.
Sometimes, in life…we often judge a person or a situation before seeing the complete picture.
Appearances are merely glimpses of the unseen.
As you can see, the first photo depicts the ball as much larger than the chair. Maybe because you’re too close to the subject. Maybe it’s too close to you. Maybe you don’t have all the facts. Maybe you have no clue what the ball really looks like. Maybe you need to step back to get a different perspective.
Now what do you see? It’s obvious that the ball is not as big as it once appeared. When placed next to another object, a comparison could be made to see the difference.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could see people, life and emotions on this scale of observation? In today’s world, we tend to just point the camera and capture what we want. Our focus is distorted. It’s not always what we think we see.
First impressions may be deceiving.
The photo above is an ocean view shot from a balcony. If you look closely, there are two people walking along the shore. They appear small compared to the infinite blue. They appear small because the ocean is much larger in size. Sometimes, we try to be the infinite blue. We try to make ourselves bigger than we actually are. But, in truth…we are really small in the big picture of life. Our wants are trivial compared to another person’s needs.
This photo was taken just before dusk. The trees behind my house made the moon seem so small. But we all know the moon is much bigger than it appears to be in the sky. Appearances can be deceiving.
Next time you look at the moon, think of this:
No matter what our differences, whether big or small.
Remember, we all look at the same moon. No matter who we are!
