WPC: Admiration

I admire many people. People who struggle hard to get a decent life, people who save other people’s lives, people who have accomplished great things… But there is one man I admire perhaps the most of all. The Dalai Lama.

We all know his story, how he was taken from his parents at an early age – being the chosen one. How he had to flee his country from the invading Chinese, and how he has managed to survive and be the leader and role model for so many people in the world. His gentle wisdom, his smiling eyes, his message of peace and nonviolence is recognized worldwide.

The Dalai Lama has my deepest admiration .

In the header is a picture from Malmoe, when he visited in 2011. I had listened to him once before in Lund, but this time I also happened to be right at the entrance just when he left the building.

After the interesting and joyful interview, he walked out to the waiting car…

CFFC: Graffiti & Murals

If you are a skilled artist – you are really good. In Malmoe yesterday I found these.

For more graffiti, click here.

These two, the blue and the red one, are painted on the same house in Malmoe – One long side in red tones, the other one in blue. These two details caught my eye. The frog – look at his eye! The bird I adore as well.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Abstract Photography

Cee’s challenge this week is about abstractions. My try is from Malmoe last Autumn. See more abstract photos here.

Like abstract art, abstract photography concentrates on shape, form, colour, pattern and texture. The viewer is often unable to see the whole object. The subject of the photo is often only a small part of the idea of the image. Viewers may only know the essence of the image subject or understand it by what is implied. 

Often the image will not be a literal view of the subject itself. The subject tends to come second to seeing. The impact of aspects of the subject become a form of expressing the point. (definition found here)
