While almost everyone is busy this Hajj season in Saudi Arabia going to Meccah which gave us few days of vacation, I and a friend took a few hours for a side trip to shoot sunset at North Corniche of Jeddah, KSA.
I found it fascinating to shoot children. There are always something inside that made me smile and recall my own childhood. If I have the chance, I would definitely want to re-experience such moments.
In this vast and complicated world, some lessons can’t be found in our day to day routine. We just need to observe and listen to the actions from these innocent children.
The freedom to seize the day and leave all worries behind.
The courage of taking risk and choosing to go the extra mile.
The choice to share and co-exist freely.
To dream simply and find the true meaning of happiness.
To race with friends not with competitors no matter you loose or win. It’s the experience of being alive counts.
To just enjoy life. Live if full and simple. Let the world smile for us for we will only be in this world for a limited time and there will be no other chance but now.
Let us take time to listen to children. They have better messages for us compared to what we are showing them. If we could only be like them, then this world will be a better world to live in.
How about you? Do you ever miss your childhood? I bet you have a unique one, ‘coz if not, so sad it will not be fair enough.
Here are my share for this day’s daily prompt challenge. Anything wrong with them?
Can you describe or identify a thing or person exactly what it looks like by just looking at its shadow?
It’s difficult, right? Maybe we can visualize or have a wild guess, but it is just what it is, a product of our imagination, but not the actual thing. Take a look at this.
Sometimes we hide through our own shadow. We hide something that only ourselves know. Secrets, fears, shame, thoughts, desire etc. For what any reason? Only ourselves would know.
Sometimes our eyes fool us. It make us believe something that is not true.
Plain white clothes or striped? Fakes roam around. They are everywhere. Our eyes are not enough to identify the real ones from the other.
Most of us wants to be original. There is only one way to do that. Don’t be like the common.
If everyone is looking at life by the same boring perspective; If they are going the same way; same words and actions, then change yours in a better way.
Like footprints, we can leave a shadow in this world when our time is finish, our shadow inside the hearts and minds of those we left behind.
How would you like to be remembered? Pretender, Fake or Unique?
