Seeing Again: 14 Black and White Images (re)Seen

Looking at Stonehenge (M.A. Reilly, England, 2013)
In What Light Can Do: Essays on Art, Imagination, and the Natural World, Robert Hass quoting Simone Weil writes that "[a]ttention is prayer, and form in art is the way attention comes to life." What we pay attention to and fail to attend to interested me this evening as I found myself cycling through images I had discarded. Taking a second look after the passage of time yields new insights, new ways of seeing what had been missed prior.

Here are 14 of those discarded images, reclaimed.
