Variations on the Color of Hike 5

June 23, 2011

Did you know that RGB screens like the one currently being used to view this blog are unable to accurately replicate violet?*

I realize there’s a certain cruel irony to presenting these photos. They may not all be “violet” per se, but how are you, dear Reader, to know? Your experience is dictated by the medium through which you view a blog that has already been filtered and altered by my perception, as well as by the lens of my camera.

I hope you can forgive me for my intentional deceit. The point is simply this: to see the world as it is meant to be seen, the computer must be tossed aside in favor of less processed experiences. If you care to know more than a shadow of the sights I’ve shown here, go to Spencer Butte, feel the sun on your face and use those beautiful eyes to enjoy the view.
