Patience is also a form of action-Auguste Rodin


Oh! Click of one more boring escalator!

This image appears mundane and nothing exceptional or wonderful to individuals who have never shown any interest in photography (apart from utilising their mobile phone camera with their snapshots).

For a novice like me, this is a chance to sharpen my photographic abilities.

“A photograph is usually looked at seldom looked into.”

Ansel Adams

I took this click for three reasons

  • Vanishing point
  • Symmetry
  • Mirror reflection

This location is a busy international airport, so I had to wait patiently for a nice shot because the escalator was bustling with people and I was having trouble getting a clear picture because people were blocking my view of the other end.

Fortunately, there was some relief when I saw this man with an orange-coloured banlon (which is no longer fashionable).

I waited until he was nearing the other end (for me to get that mirror reflection), and to my surprise, he stretched his both hands on the handrails, which gave me the perfect opportunity to take the picture.

When you look at the click, it appears as though five people are uniting their hands to make an incredible display.

(beauty in the eyes of the beholder, is it not so?)

I had to wait for a little over 45 minutes before I was rewarded for my perseverance in getting this image. (Fortunately, I had three hours until my next flight.)


“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
