It is a Matter of Perspective

No matter where you go in the world, there is always one thing that you always take with you. Regardless of who you are, you take with you your own past experiences, values, beliefs, and preconceptions. We should all try to have an open mind and understand the culture, which is truly a good thing, but it isn’t always as easy as it sounds. One of the first things that you learn about cultural anthropology, where people attempt to study a culture without changing the culture, is that just by observing people, you can change their behavior. Is it really possible to travel to a place that is truly foreign to you without viewing it through the filters of your own life? This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is Scale, which is really just a matter of perspective.
