RemoteI love the shades in this image. The colors of the bricks, the truck, the trees, the ground, all seem to be different shades of detail that is hard to find in a world of color.

This is something that I find very fascinating and curious to me. Human beings are one of the few mammals that can see colors. Does this mean that the rest of the mammals on our globe observe the world this way? Do they see the textures and shades that we miss because we see color? I know that some animals can see farther into the IR or UV spectrum than we can but still can’t distinguish color. I am curious what that looks like to them.

Don’t get me wrong. I love color. There is some very vital information that is communicated by our ability to discern different wavelengths of light using visual cues. I just want to know what it’s like to not have that. I’m just curious.
