MOIRE’, PERCEPTION & POSITION

MOIRE', PERCEPTION & POSITION

It is quiet on Copley Square.. Early; even for the rising workmen and women.. A homeless man slumbers under one of the Trinity Church eves.. So damn cold.. how can they stand that; Shouldn’t he be somewhere else or try to pull it together….I move on.. a geometric illusion catches my eye. I set camera; edging Hancock Building and church structure.. New vs. Old.. It looks odd. My eye is trying to figure out what its’ picking up. In mind, I know what’s there.. but the eye doesn’t see it.. It’s starting to give me a headache.. I position the camera again; try to make the union razor sharp.. click.. The Hancock building is so much larger, but the eye doesn’t see this.. The Hancock is linear, but I can’t pick up the line’s intersection. Like a pond,the mirrored exterior of the building filters sunrise-light; warming it, but I know it’s cold.. Is this what the camera sees.. Is this moiré… position… perception? I know the building’s size, largest in Boston. I know its’ shape..But like I write, my eye sees different. My frame of visual reference dare not judge what I see as fact… Just as I see the homeless man sleeping in this biting cold. I should dare not judge what he can or can not do; or where he should or should not be.. I may not be seeing what is really there.. It’s moire’, perception and position.. and it’s wrong….
