“At the Supermarket”


Photograph by John Diamond, M.D.

Outside the supermarket I was immediately attracted to – by – some wondrous patterns on a white traffic line. Of course, I started to photograph them.

A lady with two kids asked me whatever was I seeing to photograph. I showed her. And then she got them to see them too.

As she walked away, she smiled to me: “Thank God for the artist who teaches us how to see.”

I think she didn’t just see – she Saw.
And that’s always my intention.
Perhaps she’ll now be an “artist” – and her children. I hope so.
