Ordinary

I J khanewala  encourages us to post photos, which initially we think as just ordinary but on closer scrutiny, we change our opinion go for the shoot, resulting in an extraordinary wonder!

Truly an interesting photo challenge.

Thank you Khanewala.

Ordinary vs Extraordinary

Always I wonder what makes ordinary look extraordinary and extraordinary look ordinary!

I guess in the real-life story- it’s easy to differentiate.

But in photography, my feeling is it’s altogether a different concept.

For dedicated photographers, nothing is ‘ordinary’.

Every ordinary single moment that is available to them can result in extraordinary clicks.

I think, professional photographers never waste a single minute in deciding whether it is worthy of photography since everything they look through an artistic point of view and feel everything is worthy of taking a click.

After all ‘Digital Photography’ makes things much easier and one can either retain or delete the image anytime later.

This doesn’t mean that they love clicking the shutter button 24 hrs a day, whatever that comes in their way!!

Ultimately the principle remains the same.

‘Beauty in the eyes of the beholder

My personal experience

I am not a professional photographer.

I am sure many of you are hobbyists.

Whenever I lift my camera, my near and dear ones always grumble…saying not now!!

They know that their day is wasted.

I know that they get frustrated every time I am busy with the camera since I wish to further dissect the ‘scene’ which I thought of initially as an ‘ordinary’.

Street Photography

At first glance, I thought nothing great about this door entrance of the house.

A closer look I was attracted to the selective green paint on the wall, and the arrangement of the thin steel rods on either side.

All are both vertical and horizontal, giving the door some special attraction.

“Find the extraordinary inside the ordinary” Mark Haddon

Do you know why professional photographers have infinite patience?

They always look for an opportunity.

“Great people are just ordinary people with great desire” Unknown

“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen”- Orhan Pamuk

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent” Milan Kundera

Don’t ask me why I took the above image which is not so great, and you can just see a lonely dog with an empty chair and 3 bricks next to it. I know nothing much there to be attracted, leave alone clicking a shot.

But I felt that the dog is missing something. It’s not too happy.

Looks like it’s waiting for its master to return.

Maybe the chair belongs to the master.

I felt this is an extraordinary situation for the dog and dog trying to express something!

What is that single important thing, a dog teaches us but we ignore?

“A dog will teach you, unconditional love. If you have that in your life, things won’t be too hard”  Robert Wagner

Only dogs lover can understand their feelings

“When you feel that every person in this world has deserted you,

You are never truly alone,

I am still there for you

Take a moment, right here, right now,

and thank them for that

No matter how bad your day is,

there is always a happy face

waiting for you

to get home”   Unknown

One humble request

If you can’t love a dog like a family member, don’t get one because they only know how to look at you as a pack member.  And to them that is family.

Message

I repeat.

“Beauty in the eyes of the beholder”

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Humans and Laziness

Humans are wired for laziness.

Do you undertake a walk daily come whatever may?

I know you, my friend, you are ready with varieties of excuses.

Again the point is nobody is ashamed of laziness.

Why?

I don’t know.

Perhaps you can explain better.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Caturday

“To err is human to purr is feline”  Robert Byrne

Do you love cats?

If it is so, I am sure your mobile is full of Cat photos.

Do you prefer Cats or Dogs?

What is the reason?

How you spend time with your cats?

Is it true that none can own a cat? And this is said to be the experience of the cat owners

“Time spent with cats is never wasted”   Sigmund Freud

People & Cats

“A happy arrangement: many people prefer cats to other people, and many cats prefer people to other cats.” Mason Cooley

Dog owners vs Cat owners

“Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are God. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are God.”   Christopher Hitchens

I am confused

What is your advice, if I decide to go for a pet.

Thank you.

Namaste🙏🙏🙏

Three faithful friends

This lady seems to enjoy her moments with this pet, I don’t know the name of the breed but I noticed from the pet’s expression that, it’s excited about being with its master.

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent”. Milan Kundera

“There are three faithful friends, an old wife, an old dog, and ready money” Benjamin Franklin

Regarding the above quote, I can understand the mention of an old wife and an old dog……but money being a faithful friend…I don’t know what exactly he wants to convey.

Maybe the readers can help me understand better.
