Roaming around in the busy streets of cities, sometimes you see…
a lone pedestrian
and sometimes someone waiting…
or people passing by each other…
and people carrying out their ordinary everyday life…
or you might see a performance of arts, and an act of kindness
friends hanging out and chatting in the gorgeous sun
people enjoying a blissful afternoon in a cafe
or people from another era taking a walk 😉
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” – Elliott Erwitt
Sometime I do admire the fact that, the ordinary life around us, isn’t so ordinary after all.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.
– Marcel Proust
Next time I leave for a trip, I shall make it a “voyage of discovery with new eyes”. And when I’m home, I hope there’s a change in me. I can see life with changed eyes – new eyes.
Or as usual, I’ll just travel mainly for the photos I can potentially make out of it :p
To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ.
Colossians 1:27,28 NIV
Let us stir each other on, to one day be fully mature in Christ.
Perhaps you’d think being up high makes you proud – everything beneath seems so small. But it didn’t. It made me realize I’m one of them. A tiny living being occupying a negligible space in the entire universe, yet surrounded by a Love bigger than one can ever imagine. Isn’t it so humbling and so uplifting at the same time?
Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.
All that is gold does not glitter,
not all those who wander are lost
– JRR Tolkien
After some time of disappearance from this blog, I’m finally back. It’s definitely time to brush up on my skills and creativity, too!
I was lost, now I’m back on track. =)
