The Sentinel

Imagination, Part I

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
– Albert Einstein

Yesterday’s post on my other photography blog was also titled “Imagination”, but these photos from Point Lobos State Reserve might not require you to use your imagination…unless you see something different that what I see.

I love this sleeping dolphin’s beautiful colors. I imagine at one time it may have been white with gold markings belonging to some royal family…

If you ever watched Saturday Night Live in the late ’70s then you probably saw the clay character, Mr. Bill (link takes you to the Wikipedia page about Mr. Bill). That’s what I’m reminded of when looking at this rock.
