If a child might ask, "What does it mean 'to have a good eye'?", we could say, "Look at the photo collages of Rick Simon. Look at what he does with small things he finds in nature — a twig with leaves here, a flower with petals there — and how he puts them together to make interesting pictures. He has a good eye for beautiful things that get our attention and bring us pleasure."
