day 85 – four implements for the observer.

This one was difficult to select just four.

Ultimately, I like that these four represent vision dependent upon direction. The binoculars magnify. The mirror lends hindsight. The peripheral telescope affords sideways vision. The pen observes from all directions, sometimes simultaneously.

For me, tools of observation are collectibles because of what they aspire to. They attempt to diminish blindspots. To see that little bit more, to bring things that little bit closer, thus understand that much better.
