Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections ~ Your own identity ….

 

 

“You can’t see yourself. You know what you look like because of mirrors and photographs, but out there in the world, as you move among your fellow human beings, whether strangers or friends or the most intimate beloveds, your own face is invisible to you. You can see other parts of yourself, arms and legs, hands and feet, shoulders and torso, but only from the front, nothing of the back except the backs of your legs if you twist them into the right position, but not your face, never your face, and in the end – at least as far as others are concerned – your face is who you are, the essential fact of your identity. Passports do not contain pictures of hands and feet. Even you, who have lived inside your body for sixty-four years now, would probably be unable to recognize your foot in an isolated photograph of that foot, not to speak of your ear, or your elbow, or one of your eyes in close-up. All so familiar to you in the context of the whole, but utterly anonymous when taken piece by piece. We are all aliens to ourselves, and if we have any sense of who we are, it is only because we live inside the eyes of others.”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea …. makes me feel better

sea

 

 What kind of emotions does the sea or ocean make you feel?

It makes me feel light hearted …. as if there is nothing in the world that could make me sad … 

 

floating feeling

floating feeling

 

Do you remember the first time you went in the water? Had a wave crash on you?

I remember exactly how I felt , the tingling feeling on my feet , when the waves crashed on me , and the longing feeling to touch it again , its mesmerizing , you forget everything , just wait there or the next wave to crash on you ,,,,

 

sand

 

Felt the sand burn your feet? Do you feel more peaceful around water?

Ah … the feeling , when your feet thrusting deep into the sand , the sweet smell of that wet sand all around you … ofcourse I feel peaceful around water , more than anywhere in the world.

 

Dubai beach

Dubai beach

 

Do you hate the beach? What’s the most interesting thing about the sea for you?

It’s IMPOSSIBLE for me to hate beach , & I think anyone with right mind would either ….. & talking about the most interesting thing about sea …. well its not a particular thing … Everything about the sea, the waves , the sand , the smell , it all envelopes into this package , & it makes me feel like the world is so much better place to live in … if I ever have any negative thoughts about life , I just need to check out the beach , & the wave will wash away any such feelings , & I would feel refresh , with a new attitude … & that’s a beautiful thing about sea ….

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Carefree ~ Bunking College …

“I’ve learned one thing, and that’s to quit worrying about stupid things. You have four years to be irresponsible here, relax. Work is for people with jobs. You’ll never remember class time, but you’ll remember the time you wasted hanging out with your friends. So stay out late. Go out with your friends on a Tuesday when you have a paper due on Wednesday. Spend money you don’t have. Drink ’til sunrise. The work never ends, but college does…”
― Tom Petty

This week’s theme reminds me of my carefree years of college , the lectures we bunked , the partys we had fun , the teasing & silly fights , all those fun times , its difficult to choose from such million memories and thousand photos , so I let my heart pick this three photos randomly …

There in the middle is a girl who couldn’t pose , as her friend was deliberately trying to ruin her pic
lolz… that girl is me & the guy in the full zoom is the one who is trying to click with his stretched hand,
even though I insisted to call upon waiter to get capture the pic… evrything going on is so wrong
yet a beautiful memory has been captured
Mac-donalds...

This one is when we jumped from the college walls, as we were not allowed to go beyond the campus ground,
yet we wanted to watch the movie … & it was scorching summer so we all covered our faces to protect ourselves from the sun burn
& took off to get a ride … coz we used to come in college buses , and so now we had to find a way of our own

Bunking college

This snapshot was taken inside the movie theatre , yeah yeah , I know its not a good behavior to place your shoes
on the front seat , but cum on , we sometimes lose to keep track of our classy behavior when we are with
crazy friends , all we end up doing is silly things & dts wat college days are for ….

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreshadow…. a sign or simply nothing ….

broken lamp

broken lamp

 

Foreshadow : A warning … or an indication … a sign ….

It all depends on how we perceive things , we see a broken lamp , & what thought crosses our mind. Its a sign , to tread carefully ahead , of whatever new thing we are planning to do … or to look back and see what we are losing …

But there is a catch , you cannot look at everything and start taking those as some signs , sometimes they are just mere things happening , while sometimes they mean more than that …

the trick lies in drawing the line so that we don’t start hallucinating , or over thinking
