A love affair with life

A master’s saying rings loud in my consciousness: photography is a love affair with life. This holds true without us knowing it when we take pictures of people, flowers, trees, seas, rivers, streams, sunsets and a host of other subjects. The object of our focus may be inanimate like a rock or a mountain but, I am not delusional yet certainly imaginative, how often have you thought that a rock, stone or pebble throbbed and was warm when you held it? And a mountain that seemingly heaves as it hosts and itself sustains millions of breathing creatures. A sunset smiles, a river flows, flowers sway, winds roar, clouds roam, trees dance, and even those lilies pose for my shot! This earth of ours, with billions of elements, things and inhabitants, is life itself. Photography embraces them all!

    Thak is true. When you start loving you start paying attention to somebody you love. The same happens to photographers – they pay attentions to life they observe and picture.

      Thank you Pani. Photographers focus not only with their eyes, but also with their minds and hearts…
