I've Been Busy...

As you can easily see, I've been neglecting this blog. In part it's because I found it difficult to post interesting content on a regular basis. However, I do have an excuse. I've been working on another book that you might find interesting. The book is called The Practice of Contemplative Photography: Seeing the World with Fresh Eyes, which I've written with my good friend Michael Wood.

I think this book really does bring Contemplating Reality into the 21st Century. Here is what photographer Jay Maisel had to say about the book:
This is not your usual “how to be a better photographer” book. It takes you into deeper water. It requires investigation and commitment to areas new to you. Among other things, you will think about perception in new ways. If you read this book with care, and without skepticism, it will radically expand your thinking, seeing, and photography.
You can browse inside the book by clicking here. Michael and I are also posting new photographs and other info on the The Practice of Contemplative Photography Facebook page. I hope you like it.

Andy in your book contemplating reality you talk about finger snapping being unable to produce a sound that does not already exist.After contemplating this I must disagree.There is a chain off events that is put in motion by the finger snap that ultimately results in sound being produced.The finger snap causes an airwave that stimulates the little bones in the ear resulting in the experience of sound.Thus there exists a transmission out chain of events that results in sound being produced.
