In the many years I traveled, I’ve come across several interesting places, cultures and people. Not wanting to lose vivid memories of these wonderful sights, I took photos of every scene that caught my attention. Decades later, I noticed that the photos I took were of similar subjects. Yes, they are similar, yet in their own special way, they are distinct from each other.
I realized that although people come from various places, have diverse cultures and live dissimilar lifestyles, deep down, we all have the same passions – we want to love and be loved, we want to live and live life to the fullest, we want to be happy, we want to win, we want to accomplish, we want to be remembered… The only difference is that we express these aspirations in our own special and unique ways. Nonetheless, it is these differences that make the world a colorful and an exciting place to live in.
Through this blog, I want to share with you (i.e., by way of photographs) identical scenarios expressed in various ways by people from other parts of the world. This is by no means an extensive collection as I have visited only a few countries. However, this will give us a glimpse into how people live out aspirations similar to ours. I believe that It is through looking at other peoples’ lives that we appreciate our similarities and also accept our differences.
I hope that you will find time to browse through the photos. Comments are very much appreciated….
