To Watch Us Watching Them


There are eyes to watch us watching them, on the information highway, and on those downtown sidewalks. Our every moment is captured, and archived in gigabytes.
There are eyes to watch us watching them, in the wild, and in the forest, either when we are “bookmarking” or merely wandering around. These are remembered and gossiped through the whistling breeze in the leaves.
There are eyes to watch us watching them, no matter you know it, or not. You better behave yourself for not becoming a digital sore or a laughing stock in the jungle. The later may last for centuries.

There are always eyes watching us wherever we go. The only thing we can do is watch them back.

W dżungli lepiej dokładnie widzieć czyje oczy Cię obserwują. Będzie bezpieczniej. Pozdrawiam.
In the jungle more carefully to see whose eyes are watching you. It will be safer. Yours.

It is not easy seeing who is watching us in the forest. So many leaves in the way. Lovely photos, Rainfield. Have a happy weekend!

Those trees are so tall, fun to imagine all the curious eyes that could be watching!

Silently they watch, keeping record of our passing. Do you see them? Can you feel them? Blending into silence.

I'm glad you were watching the forest while it was watching you. You got a couple of beautiful photos of the forest with those tall trees.

I love how you put your words and they always fit your beautiful pictures so well.

I'd love to lash out a 70-200mm barrel with extension tube and shoot those curious eyes up there. That would be lovely.

BTW, did you manage to get a glimpse of them?

Brita said...

I never feel in your pictures alone in the forest, there's always someone who sees me and follows me. Think about perspective, feel small and safe / Brita

For sure there are many eyes watching us. :)

betchai said...

i chuckle at the last line, indeed, we better behave or else become a digital sore :)

What a great concept that you can't escape prying eyes even in the forest!

Hi! Big Brother is even in forest!?
Thanks for sharing.

I always know there are birds and animals watching when we walk through the foresty areas near us here. Or in the swampy areas when we're in Florida (there you have to look down, because some of those eyes have mouths that you don't want to tangle with!)

Poetic Shutterbug said...

I love your photos and words Rainfield. And remember, I am always watching you :)

Reena Walkling said...

So right ... they'll last much longer than us!

Deb Crecelius said...

I think I'll just close my eyes
and pretend I don't know.

Nortehanon said...

Oh, my, I don't want to be a laughing stock for centuries lol

To watch or not to watch? Someone is watching from a distance..

mk said...

To keep a watch of who is there, but it wont take me a second look!!!

I'd rather have the trees keep watch over me than feel the eyes of millions of circuits record my every thought.

I would not wish to be a laughing stock anywhere!!
