Sight without Vision is Futile
Sight is a sense that most people use every day but each person sees differently. As a photographer, I have found that I see the world differently than other people. I have learned to see textures, colors, patterns, and shapes. These small, mostly looked over moments are the base for my photographs. Hellen Keller said that “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” This bold statement has so much depth that many people might not understand. I feel like there are many times that people look without seeing. I have done this many times because of how busy life can be. I find it important to take time to slow down and truly see what is around us. I do this through travel, being in nature and helping others. This phrase has a deeper meaning that looks at the difference between one’s physical sight and having a vision. Vision is described as looking deeper than the surface level. Combining your thoughts with what you see can create a passion and reason for living. My vision for life has always been greater than the average person. I want my life to have a purpose. I want to use my gifts and talents to better the world we live in today. There are so many problems that break my heart and I want to use my vision and my ability to see differently to change that. Each person has a purpose, some just lack the vision to see and the means to fulfill it. I don’t want to be a person without vision, I want my vision to inspire others to begin to see in a similar way.
