always look at the ceiling of a restaurant. preferably before you eat because you may choose to leave. that’s just food for thought, no pun intended.

The ultimate wisdom of the photographic image is to say, ‘There is the surface. Now think, or rather feel, intuit. What is beyond it, what the reality must be like if it looks that way’. Photographs, which cannot themselves explain anything, are inexhaustible invitations to deduction, speculation, and fantasy. The very muteness of what is, hypothetically, comprehensible in photographs is what constitutes their attraction and provocativeness.

    I’ve definitely seen a fair share of ceilings in restaurants that have turned my stomach! Thankfully, the food didn’t reflect the same emotion. 🙂

    I agree with Ayush. HA! (But how do I keep this image from “collapsing” on me when I scroll down to see the text???)

    I think I’m dizzy. And perhaps I need someone to bend my neck horizontal again.

    I think Susan Sontag rather over eggs the photographic pudding. Perhaps more food for thought for you 🙂
