Button, on a lark I clicked this photograph of a tree in Goa. Actually Dost and I are in Goa and decided to catch up with our movie viewing. We drove to the Inox and, as there was some time to spare, we started walking around the courtyard taking in the beautiful greenery and the clear blue sky above. That’s when I spotted a couple of these stunning trees that had grown into each other as if their limbs were intertwined. The fading evening light passing through the leaves looked stunning and I took out my phone camera to capture it. What you see above is the result.
It is very similar to a black-and-white pencil drawing.
You’re right. Dost, too, flicked out his phone and clicked some photographs. At the same time, I learnt a new word in the process.
And what does it mean?
It’s a phychological test in which subjects’ perceptions of ink blots are recorded and analysed using phychological interpretation. Doesn’t the image of the tree above look like an ink blot?
I don’t quite get the meaning of this new word!
Simply put, different kinds of ink blots are placed in front of patients with phychological issues and they are asked to respond by saying what, accordingly to them, that blot resembles.
It’s like seeing clouds in the sky and deciphering what the different shapes resemble. Do you recall how we once spotted a cloud teddy, a lot like me?
I do. I do.
