Kaleidoscope Eyes

Enjoy Rick’s beautiful images shot through a kaleidoscope:

The word kaleidoscope was coined in 1817 by Sir David Brewster.  The word comes from the Greek kalos “beautiful” plus eidos “shape” plus scope “to observe”.  Brewster put the words together to come up with “observer of beautiful forms”.

The kaleidoscope allows us to see the world around us in a psychedelic way!  Our normal perceptions and ways of seeing are broken down by fractured light and then rebuilt into an endless array of patterns.  I want to hold a kaleidoscope to my eyes more often to see what I am normally unable to see, to open my mind to the beauty of color, light, and patterns around me!
