Noticed Beauty

I’m watching the Hindi movie Raajneeti and there was one shot that was so beautiful. I think it could have been taken on its own the without context of the shots around it and it still would have been beautiful.

The shot was mostly dark blue with a little bit of yellow to the side of Sooraj’s (the only character on screen at the time) face. Sooraj’s face was also mostly in shadow and his expression could be interpreted many ways if the context of the other shots was removed. Kind of like that experimental film where we interpreted the man’s expression according to the clips that came before and after it.

If I wasn’t Noticing (with a capital) what I was watching, I would have missed it entirely. Noticing has crept into my daily habits now and I’ve Noticed that it’s done so.
