Eye Placement Principles

In summary, the analyses presented reveal a dominant positioning principle for one eye to lie at the vertical axis of portraits over the past two millennia. (...)The expression of this compositional principle with an unbiased accuracy of less than + 5% over such an extended time span is remarkable. The fact that this precision has been obtained from perceptual processes that appear to be completely implicit in the artists’ own analyses of their work suggests that hidden principles are operating in our aesthetic judgments. The ultimate significance of this particular placement of eye positions remains to be determined, but it seems that the ‘window on the soul’ is most transparent in a restricted region in the picture frame. Placements of the eyes away from this region are usually used to depict indolence or some other reduction in our connection with the subject of the painting.

The state's Excelsior Scholarship program will be rolled out in tiers over the next three years, starting with full coverage of four-year college tuition this fall for students whose families make less than $100,000. The income cap will increase to $110,000 in 2018 and $125,000 in 2019.

There is no age limit for the program; students must be enrolled full-time with an average of at least 30 credits per year and meet the minimum GPA requirement for their program.

#365Project | 027/365 | Hopewell Junction, NY

One of the byproducts of this daily photo project has been a sense that a theme is beginning to develop on its own. The circumstance of work hours, winter daylight and an hour commute each way to work and home, creates a sort of predefined environmental framing. I am working within the conditions now, but am looking forward to spring and the extended daylight.

#365Project | 026/365 | Hopewell Junction, NY

Taken on the way home from work last week at the service station near the highway that has the fresh buttered rolls in the morning, but also has the more expensive gas. You really cannot win. Also, I like when people see you with a camera in your hand raised to your eye and ask 'hey, what are you doing?' I'm stealing your soul pal... if you must know.

When does a perceptual schematic become consciousness ?

I am a few days behind on posting here on G+, although the photos are from their respective days. I do find it much easier to stay current on Instagram without the added function of albums, collections and an ever changing UI. Personally, the current iteration of Google+ leaves a lot to be desired... the image picker feels like a huge step backwards, namely if the image you are sharing is not from recent auto-backup. Grumblings aside, I prefer the Google+ desktop experience of composing and viewing images full screen.

I spotted this scene coming home from work last week behind a shopping plaza.
