Torchwood was started as a group blog for a women's leadership team. This post is by Susan:
I've been thinking about Jenny's Aim and Shoot
and it occurred to me that you can aim
on a subject, then change the target, focus, perspective, settings, effects and your subject is suddenly something entirely different.
I have to do this. I aim and shoot and suddently something unexpected is obscuring my view. Where do I place my focus? I can't get to my original subject - this gommy thing is in my way! Can't ignore it - have to deal.
So I start to think, "What is this behemoth ?" (I like that word, but I want to spell it my own way - as if it something Bohemian, which I also like.) I can hate it because it is blocking my sights. I can ignore it and then I'm helpless to move off the spot because I am at its mercy. Or, I can look at it objectively, without hate or annoyance, and study it for what it is.
It has some interesting nuances then. Penetrating eyes. Sharp edges. A fuzzy top. And even some warmth. Warmth? How can that be? Easy - I just changed to backlit
and there it is!
OK, it may be a stretch, but it's not going anywhere soon, so I might as well see what's there for me in the meantime.
