Listening with Your Eyes!

“Listening with your eyes…”
- Peter West Nutting, Quaker Photographer

“Listening with your eyes...hearing with your heart…”
- Dawn Kincade, Multisensory Photography

“Listen with the eye – wherever the eye falls is the face of creation.”
- Sufi Saying

“Listening to someone is an extraordinary gift.”
- Kio Stark, author of When Strangers Meet:
How People You Don’t Know Can Transform You

The past week has brought an extraordinary parade of colour into my life. Wherever my eyes roamed, they were rewarded with rich, joyous, extravagant colour. What a gift! The Quaker photographer, Peter West Nutting, refers to appreciating this kind of visual magic as "listening with your eyes."

As a way of giving thanks for these colourful blessings, I’m posting these images, all recorded in the last seven days. Enjoy!
