Homes of the World

In 1964, a song entitled “A House Is Not A Home” was written by Burt Bacharach for the film of the same title. This was popularized by Dionne Warwick and many next generation artists followed suit and recorded the song. The latest version of the song was recorded in 2014.

The song actually brings to mind the basic differences between a house and a home. A house is simply a building or a structure. Whereas a home is a house where there are people living in love and harmony. A home is where one can find refuge and feel safe in spite of one’s weakness. A home is where someone can be accepted as family for whoever and whatever he/she is. A home is where someone is nurtured to reach his utmost potential. A home is where we can have our own sanctuary among people living in the bond of love.

Unfortunately, many of us have forgotten about building a home. Instead we build houses.

In this photo series, I compiled pictures of homes from different countries. I especially feature homes that are unique to the country (as evidence of their cultural heritage).
