Scrying is a method of divination where one would gaze upon something with a surface that is polished, reflects light, or somewhat translucent. Most stereotyped would be the crystal ball, in which the fortune teller would concentrate on the crystal and be able to see into the future. Other forms of scrying include, but are not limited to, mirrors, flames, water (as shown above), smoke, and oils. In most cases scrying is used to achieve clairvoyance, or to perceive future events beyond sensory contact.
I want in fact more of you. In my mind I am dressing you with light; I am wrapping you up in blankets of complete acceptance and then I give myself to you. I long for you; I who usually long without longing, as though I am unconscious and absorbed in neutrality and apathy, really, utterly long for every bit of you.
Martin Munkácsi Three Boys at Lake Tanganyika 1930
"For me this photograph was the spark that ignited my enthusiasm. I suddenly realized that, by capturing the moment, photography was able to achieve eternity. It is the only photograph to have influenced me. This picture has such intensity, such joie de vivre, such a sense of wonder that it continues to fascinate me to this day." Henri Cartier-Bresson
Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant; there is no such thing. Making your unknown known is the important thing.
