Observers

Nothing exists until or unless it is observed. An artist is making something exist by observing it. And his hope for other people is that they will also make it exist by observing it.
William S. Burroughs

I've never thought about it... that's a great way of putting it - observation and existence, one needs the other. and a great match!

Glad you like it Luisa!
Yes, a special connection gets developed between the observed and the observer. The photo is lovely, great moment captured, these observers didn't knew that they were also observed ;)
