This week ‘s challenge is quite interesting , & as soon as I saw this photo , the first word that popped in my mind was UNIQUE , the photo is creation using photo manipulation by
The mummified zombies, bound endless strands (cords) fate describes the situation of awaited death & miserable life.
While the little girl with violin sitting on chair has bit static effect with it , grounded roots , yet feet not touching , like its waiting for the shield of shoes , before she enters the real world.
On the other hand Robot woman , is the complicate part to explain , she is yesterday or could be the tomorrow , but acts like the other side of the same coin of zombies .
The real meaning is still in the eyes of the viewer ….
It’s strange, but when you’re the only person you know who’s gone through something that’s changed you into a completely different person, for a while it’s like you’re on your own planet….
Solitude has different meanings & everyone has different way to perceive it , some people find crowded place as the best place to lose oneself & find their solitude in such a environment , while some like to go off to wander along the lonely tracks , totally cut off from any communication or contact ….
Some are habituated to live in solitude , while some appreciate solitude time once in a while ….
Here are few pics that i think goes very well with the theme ….
-> “The necessary thing is after all but this: solitude, great inner solitude. Going-into-oneself and for hours meeting no one—this one must be able to attain.”
->“I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.”
->“Reflection must be reserved for solitary hours; whenever she was alone, she gave way to it as the greatest relief.”
~Jane Austen from Pride and Prejudice
Someone said , college time was my best vacation . & I absolutely agree . Everyday I go to college & learn something.& I am not just referring to lecture notes or practicals I perform , I learn about people , I learn how to tackle difficult situation , everyday there is some new task to accomplish , a new target to be completed , new levels of stress to be experienced , you get to know your own stamina .
The lessons of life can never be learned from any institute of the world , it comes from the small things in everyday life.I’ve learned 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 classes you bunked , hanging out with your friends. So stay out late. Go out for shopping with your friends on Friday when you have a project presentation due on Saturday. Spend money you don’t have….
This week s theme is Near & Far ,I really thought a lot about it as in what concept would really go with it.
and than it clicked my mind, while I was driving home back from My friend’s home , there was heavy rainfall in the city , and all the roads where flooded , Even though I was near to my home , it seemed Far away.
Usually it takes me 5 min s to reach from my friend’s place to mine , but , it took almost 45 mins , &than I realized , no matter how fast our cars can drive , it won’t help in the real crisis. We can enhance the features of the car , but we cannot increase the dimensions of the land. Its like we have to still achieve something that looks so near yet its far …..
Thought on Traffic :
“A society sufficiently sophisticated to produce the internal combustion engine has not had the sophistication to develop cheap and efficient public transport?’
‘Yes, boss… it’s true. There’s hardly any buses, the trains are hopelessly underfunded, and hence the entire population is stuck in traffic”
― Ben Elton, Gridlock
