The Astute Mind

“When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?”

Sherlock Holmes.

One book I never seem to get tired of reading is Sherlock Holmes. The astute investigations, stone-cold calculations and utter logic inspired me to become a sharp detective, except that I'm not, only in my own imagination😂. I often wish that Holmes was a real person, but then it's even more incredible a fictitious person can inspire that much!

I'm using the same principles I read from the book to teach my kids. Whenever there is an incident that they do not understand, I reminded them not to conclude quickly that it is due to 'higher' powers. I urged them to exhaust all scientific explanations first before making a sound conclusion. To attribute every event that we do not understand to the supernatural is a 'lazy' way out without thinking deeper into the possible causes.

I took the shot above on the Sony A7II, Sony 70-300mm lens. I really like this sharp telephoto lens. At F/5.6, 300mm, ISO of 800 and speed of 1/30s, the photo were set for some good separation. Just a little dehaze for post-processing to make the picture 'clearer'.
