Eternity Post #312

Hope you enjoy the above picture. It was taken in the Brooklyn Bridge Park, though the place is not really important. What grabbed my attention is the interplay between light and shadow. This is the main subject here. The silhouette of the random scatter of the pilings provide contrast to the glittering surface of the water. The black and white conversion enhances the mood. The scene suggests a timeless feeling, an infinity signified by the title of “Eternity”. 

f/8, 1/800 sec, ISO 100

Any critique or comment would be appreciated.

Contemplation #296

Au revoir l'ete

Au revoir l’ete

“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.”
ARISTOTLE

I contemplated about the passage of time standing there and savouring every moment. Many of us lead busier lives than we would like to, but it is not enough to simply slow down. We can get caught up so much in our own pursuits that we start seeing life more as a monotone schedule to keep than a journey to be cherished.
