Misunderstandings are good

Today was a wet day, rainy with some dry spells. Subdued tones prevail. Here are five photographs taken today on a walk with my daughter.

Being too hasty, I misunderstood Mark's comment about dark vs. lighter photographs. Sorry for that. Also quite typical in this busy, busy world.

Incidentally, I recently read Salla Huttunen's PhD dissertation Problematic Talk - The Role of Multiple Understandings in Project Meetings. A web site claimed that the dissertation shows that "boardroom fights are good for a company".

Well, that may be true (or not), but the dissertation studies a completely different subject, namely conversations in a sequence of meetings of a software development project. And indeed, multiple understandings tend to bring out important aspects of the subject in question. Recommended reading (although a bit heavy academically, being a dissertation).

In any case, misunderstandings are not necessarily a bad thing - in fact, quite the opposite.

Really enjoy your images from the last few days. Have you been standing in front of more interesting stuff, been more critical when selecting images or have you just been "in the groove"? ;-)

Nice photographs! All 5 images are good, but the last one is excellent. The drops forming a frame a around those two still green leaves make the picture.

Misunderstandings (especially in photography) should be rather good, because I don't think they can be avoided.

@Sven W: Thanks for the encouragement. However, I have felt the opposite, of which I wrote today.

@Myn.pheos: Wet days are good for photographs, but maybe not so good for the photographer...
