Photo Challenge; Reflections Upon Reflections

I don’t know what it is that made you click on my blog amongst the millions of sites out there, but whatever it was, just know that I’m grateful to have your company on my little home on the blogosphere. And hope to see more of you around here in future.

Alas, it is another Wednesday and with it comes another contribution of mine to WordPress’ Photo Challenge, with the theme reflecting

I hope you enjoy my photos, for without an audience, a photo is nothing but a play with lights!

I noticed this peculiar confluence on a recent visit to the Afro Museum in Brasil. What caught my attention at first was how it seemed as if the natural world, represented by the wall of trees, was a direct reflection of another wall, this one man-made.

But later on, as I looked more closely at the photo, I also realised that there are two more elements present in this shot. The earth and the sky; each a reflection of the other’s eternity, and both the guardians of the arena in which ‘organic life’ and ‘man-made life’ come face to face.

And as I sit here, reflecting on this photo, I know that the sky and the earth will be there forever, regardless of what we do. But it’s our job to ensure that life, as it exists on our planet, does not lose out to our insatiable need to create a wall of concrete and brick.

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”
Mahatma Gandhi
