In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Super Sensitive.”
If you were forced to give up one sense, but gain super-sensitivity in another, which senses would you choose?
I am a photographer and hiker (HikeOurPlanet.com) and rely on four senses for my nature photography. Sight is obvious, but I also rely on scent and sound to spot wildlife for my photography. Often overlooked is a need for touch to press down at the right moment to open my camera’s shutter. Sight, sound, scent and touch combine for balance and safety as I hike through the Forest. This leaves one obvious sense that I would give up.
Happily I would forgo taste to continue with my love of seeing and photographing the beauty of nature. For me it would be a very small price to pay for enhanced eyesight.
