Inspiration for the photograph, We can see each other.

I had been obsessing over something unresolved in my work and I needed a break, so I went outside to clear my head. I took in a big breath of fresh air and started walking down the street.

All at once –

Smack! Blank! Nothing!

I blinked.

Then it hit me.

I can see something. The person across the street, the tree next to him – I can see them. Outside me. We can see each other!

I started walking again. I felt giddy, like I was walking on clouds, my whole body smiling at this miraculous mystery of sight.
