Contemplate


Contemplate.
A word that screams for deep reflection, as loud as a 6 year old would for bubble-o-bill ice cream.

Except the following internet ink is not about contemplation on a level of deep philosophy, it is instead, closer with the first line of  'Apples' dictionary definition of the word:
The action of looking thoughtfully at something for a long time.


I took a photograph on a recent day of a girl sitting in a tree.
This was taken in the middle of recording 1 part of a video clip and was the first moment that eventually caused my fingers to tap on these plastic letters to create this text.
That in itself is contemplation, but not what I'm after.


When I clicked my camera I looked up at the girl and thought.... well, something along the lines of sitting in a tree all day staring at the hills and holding up an umbrella when it rains and just looking thoughtfully at something for a long time.
