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”.
“The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.” SENECA
Eternal stillness haunts this picture. It reminds us that just one solitary moment is all that is needed to distinguish light from darkness. These seemingly divided conflicts are intertwined within us.
“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.
