photography: Take me to the wild (retake)

Recently, I visited the zoo on my trip to Shanghai and came across the wild. I realized that we sometimes use the word ‘wild’ arbitrarily. When i ran into the ligers, the tigers, and the lions, i felt goosebumps spread across my skin, and my flight response kick in albeit a wall of glass between us. Welcome to the wild.

Apoetsbrain Photography: Beautifully Dangerous

Innocent and harmless it appears.

It seems as though it has no other care in the world but to glide and twirl across the waters.

Its every move made as though to mesmerize and hypnotize its prey.  

Its color dancing to the light pretending to be light itself.

But like a moth hopelessly drawn to a flame, 

its poison soon spreads, 

and the hug you came over to give turns to a strangle.

Soon mesmerized and breathless you fall.

Existence

“Imagine your existence. Remember the reality of your consciousness. Now Imagine only existing. Existing with no purpose, no warmth, no life.Knowing nothing, heading nowhere even after death. Such hopelessness!I wish to have nothing to do with it.

For indeed man was designed for immortality. By nature we are immortal. Where man therefore spends the rest of eternity after his time on earth is the most crucial question of his existence. Now we must decide. With God or without?”

When I Consider the Heavens

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You visit him?
For You have made him a little lower than the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

Psalm 8: 3-5

A Few Suns

“Although some stars burn brighter than others, those other dimmer suns are not to be underestimated, for they burn too. They burn deep, they burn hot, they burn blue.”

~ By Sandra Chukwudumebi Obiora

A Thousand MegaPixels

Arthur’s Introduction to this piece

I have looked at how my world has changed so much and how creative we have become and the extent of magic we can pull up with our creativity from our devices and everything. However, I also felt the need to talk about the downside of all these great things and how people don’t fit. I played the part of the architect generation and how I am happy to see the delusion, the reality and all the glamour of everything and how it seems to all play into my grand plan. As such, I titled it. A THOUSAND MEGAPIXELS. Enjoy. Continue reading A Thousand MegaPixels

Birthing Emeralds

One great man was mocked because of his lifelong agenda and effort to bring about peace in his community.

This man worked, strived, suffered and later died for peace.

He will be seen as a peace maker, the reconciler, the forgiver of many many wrongs.

He welcomed the concept of generosity, and begged that each man care for his neighbor. Continue reading Birthing Emeralds

Her Beauty

Every lady has her own appeal…

Her beauty lies in the details.

Only those who have genuinely searched for it can find it.
Only those who have found it can try to comprehend the beauty that is her creation.

Only those desperate to shelter it are deserving enough to grab onto the gold that holds the power to decorate one’s destiny.”
