Apoetsbrain Photography: The Water Dwellers

Beautiful in their own fins and uniforms.  Swirling, gliding, socializing. Each design so unique. Unapologetic for existing and so alive. These are the usually forgotten water dwellers.

Life’s purpose

“Life’s purpose and the perfect rice cooker have similarities. A rice cooker can boil other dishes but it is bought because it is best at cooking rice besides other things it can do. There may be other rice cookers out there, yet, you bought the one you have in your kitchen because it shined to you. It just fit.


You have been using it all this time and for years because it has been fulfilling it’s key purpose of boiling rice to your satisfaction. The rice cooker that does not know it is a rice cooker, or one that thinks it is a potato boiler will simply never be good enough. Just like this, we all shine when we know, understand, and work at our life’s purpose. Find it, focus on it, work at it.”

Abuse & Manipulation

A Write-up by Humphery Adun 2018 ©


Humans are relational beings; and thus, we owe our existence to the ability to cultivate relationships that sustain our mental, physical, emotional and psychological tranquility. In every relationship, there are roles played by each correspondence, and these roles are defined by several factors; age, position, class, family, culture, spirituality, and tradition. This plays out in such a way that it creates dominant and subordinate(dependent) individuals in the relationships. Interestingly, as adults we play both roles of being both dependent and dominant at the same time, across different relationships, and thus there is a diffusion of a learned trait from a relationship circle to another one; and this goes on and on, creating a tangle of relationship traits.

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?”

~ Sandra C. Obiora

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.”

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
