“If we require some kind of sign, or "proof," for our belief in God, then we believe, or place our tust, not in God but in the sign or proof.” ― Robert L. Short, The Gospel According to Peanuts
" The conclusions one draws are personal, but the opportunity to capture some of these wonders in images seems a worthy challenge for any photographer."
Yep, no doubt the world is a wonderful place! That is for sure! Unfortunately, in this challenge, the "conclusion one draws" from this has already been fixed by the subject of the challenge.
I'd rather, as you say, have people draw their own conclusions from my images. Not have them already pre-defined.
I'd have thought a better title for exactly the same challenge would have been ... "The wonderful world around us", or such.
And the next challenge shall be ..."Unicorns in the wild"
Think I'll skip on the "Overwhelming proof of something that is not provable" challenge personally. It'll be easier to find a unicorn methinks. :-)
