the Artist on words & the Writer on Images...

Peter Leithart on photography:

"Perception is never merely sensible. A professional photographer points out that our "visual" impressions of people are formed not merely by visual factors but by such factors as the context in which we see someone, their personality and our rapport, and so forth. We can come away from an encounter thinking that someone is far more visually attractive than they really are. A camera, which captures only the visual impression and not other factors, makes a person look "uglier" than we remember.

and John Howe on etymology:

"I am particularly fond of etymology, which would be rather like chasing butterflies if words had wings. Not only are they as hard to catch, but pinning them down takes much of the life out of them. Rather see them flying free, and pluck them out of the air and release them later..."
