Before reading the whole post, look at the theme header image and tell me what your first instantaneous reaction was. Done? Now read on.
Shirin started this off. She wrote a post about seeing and believing and that got me thinking of doing a seeing experiment myself. The two are not connected. I asked two people to look at the theme of this blog and for their immediate reactions. Both said along the lines of:
Three guys and three girls, just for balancing out gender probabilities. Just 1 because I don’t have the cash to carry out a world wide survey. I compared what they said with what was my first reaction to this theme.
I don’t know if they brooded over it and looked properly. But, I looked at it for about 5 seconds and this what I thought:
“Battle field…Deserted battlefield”
Why? Because I didn’t have time to take a look at it properly, I thought the clouds was smoke. The snow suggested winter. Winter is generally associated with death. That’s all I thought and what I said was: “Battlefield…Deserted battlefield”.
I meant a just abandoned battlefield. Somewhere, where a battle has just taken place. Odd.
