While I agree with some of the premises set forth in Ms. Cunningham’s recent Island Attitudes column, there are “perspectives” that should be addressed. Rob O’Neal’s photo Ms. Cunningham referred to is an example of distortion and optical illusion inadvertently created in photography when telephoto lenses are used. A 965-foot by 125-foot ship cannot physically “dwarf” a 2-mile by 4-mile island. Professional photographer O’Neal would likely agree that it’s all in the angle of perspective. And perspective often drives emotion rather than facts.
