Lens Artists Challenge#117: A Photo Walk

This time Amy wants us to explore Photowalk.

When I came out of our building in the morning hours, I noticed a Road Roller parked on the side of the road, looks like relaying of the road going on in adjacent lanes, which usually done in the night time and this particular Roller is given rest in the morning. I remembered a funny quote….

Everybody talks of moving on with life, move with the flow, or live in the present etcetera, but how much they know the intensity of your suffering or sadness? 

“When people around you say move on,get a road roller for rent and move over them…” Hariesh MK

As I was walking in the nearby garden, I noticed a pretty girl.

” A girl should be like a butterfly pretty to see.hard to catch “ unknown

Weather was pleasant and suddenly it started drizzling and I stopped walking instead wished to enjoy a car ride. And I had a surprise!

Are you aware of the famous Indian Speed Breaker? If you are super crazy fast…either you die or the speed breaker dies!

As I continued my walk in the next lane had another surprise. The road was dry and no rain. So I guessed it must be a local phenomenon of drizzle in my area only. I don’t have any other explanation.

Then this gentleman was pushing his cart with scrap and he willingly gave a pose for me but I know that he is the poorest of the poor and started his daily struggle of survival. He sells the scrap to a local merchant for the pittance I learned.He had a sad expression and said that COVID made his life a virtual Hell.

“The more humanity owes the poor man, the more society denies him” Henri Rousseau

I Offered him money to have breakfast, but he politely refused.

As the temperature started rising I thought of winding up my morning walk and a wall writing caught my eye. The quote was by the late Abdul Kalam our past president of the country.

The explanation for FAIL, END, and NO was very encouraging at the end of my photo walk.

“You can’t live a positive life with a negative mind” Unknown

  1. The butterfly is beautiful. The car looks just a couple inches from the cow.
    The gentleman was pushing his cart does look sad… Thank you for sharing the quote.

  2. Such a different world you live in – the concept of meeting a cow in the middle of the road is beyond my ability to imagine! Thank you for sharing your world with us. I especially loved the quote from your former president.
