In the first picture, the sunglasses case against the paper seems a yellowish cream color, while the paper takes on a grayish blueish tone. In the second picture, since the lighting has darkened a bit and a shadow has formed, the paper seems a bit more bright and a neon-type white on the right side, while dark and grey have formed on the left. The sunglasses case has darkened into a darker hue of the same yellowish cream color it was in the first picture.

John Berger / Ways of Seeing

One thing I found interesting when I watched the video by John Berger was what he mentioned about looking at art with and without music. I looked up abstract art pieces on google images, and played classical music and looked at it after looking at it without music, and it changed my whole outlook of it. It's almost as if your mood and attitude toward that particular piece of art change completely because of the type of music you play as you look at it. Another thing he mentions which caught my attention focused on how sometimes with uninterrupted silence and stillness paintings can be very striking, which is also true when I looked at certain images on google without any music at all. It's all about you're on perspective and imagination when looking at paintings, in my opinion.
