Barb Fall 2012 355aWhat is clear and what is blurred?

When I look at a river, I see the water. It’s the focus of my gaze and detritus caught by surface tension is secondary. Yet, a photograph flips that perception – water is blurred and the fir needles come into focus. What was important to me is not important to the camera (at least at this setting).  Makes me wonder what else my perceptions are missing.  What else do I not see, both literally and figuratively? What else does my focus blur? Is there a mirror sufficient to show me?
