Seaside Photography and Musings Whilst Walking: January 22 2022
Seaside Photography and Philosophy Musings
It is amazing how one can be gifted with things people either take for granted or dream to have. I am so fortunate to be able to live close to the sea but also close to the fynbos area. Fynbos is one of the most bio-diverse species of plants in the flora kingdom. How lucky are we to live here. How lucky am I! Herewith are just some photographs on my walk I took alongside the beach. Scroll down to the bottom for my philosophy musings if you are into those.
Post Scriptum Musings of Some Sorts
I love the quote or idea from Heidegger that we are “thrown into the world”. We do not have a choice about where we are born, our skin color, and a myriad of other arbitrary things. I did not choose to be here at this time. Not to get political, but this makes so much of identity politics and general politics so non-sensical.
But I want to briefly talk about a topic I have talked too much. Bending down to appreciate the little things. Those things people look over because they are too busy. In the above pictures or photographs I showcased various photographs from angles and perspectives people rarely see. From these perspectives things look so different. Bending down to appreciate the flowers becomes a novel thing. It becomes for a lack of better term philosophical. Seeing the flower that people never look at becomes philosophical. Taking your time to look at things become philosophical.
This was just some brief and short thoughts. All the images were taken with my iPhone. The musings are somewhat attributed to the seaside flowers. Stay safe and active.
