Mysterious L, from seeingthrough35mm, invited us to take on a 5-day monochrome photo-challenge. It’s our fourth day and thinking of a post everyday has proven to be quite a challenge. Fortunately, our theme, ‘People around the World’ has kept my interest from waning.
People have always interested us. Especially, those who are content in the mundane. Besides, there maybe fewer problems more difficult to comprehend than that of the complexities of human nature. In the words of Charles Darwin,
“The evolution of the human race will not be accomplished in the ten thousand years of tame animals, but in the million years of wild animals, because man is, and always will be, a wild animal.”
Coincidentally, we complete 100 published posts on our blog today. And in a departure from my rather lengthy monologue style of writing, I’m going to opt for quotes that capture the essence of the photograph.
“One’s friends are that part of the human race with which one can be human.“
– George Santayana
“Musicians don’t retire.
They stop when there’s no more music in them.”
– Louis Armstrong
As with most challenges – we’ve got to pass it on! We’d like to invite Sreejith from Sree is travelling to participate in this challenge. Sree’s a traveller who loves exploring the farthest corners of India. Places that are untouched by the throes of the burgeoning tourism industry. Some which we’ve been to; some of which – we wish to. His lens captures the past and the present with equal ease. And people often form the highlight of his work.
What are the Rules?
1. On 5 consecutive days, create a post using a recent or past photo in black and white.
2. Each day, invite another fellow blogger to join you in your photo-journey.
All the best!
