Chicago Skyline Sunrise was captured as we were was traveling down the highway in Chicago, Illinois in the United States at sunrise.
With the sun on its way to embrace the horizon, The breeze playing a symphony on the waves. On the glittering sea beneath the radiant sky, The boat on a trip to heaven. Taken in Gokarna, India, the picture is a capture of a man, man-made artifact and things that make our planet the most beautiful in the universe.
Day of the Dead in México is one of our most influential traditions. In this photo a band is playing, hired by the family, at a graveyard and singing maybe his/her popular song.
On a recent trip to Gili Nanggu, on the southeastern coast of Lombok, my daughter waded out into the waters of a shallow bay at twilight, sending ripples outward in the warmth of an equatorial summer evening...
China. I am sitting at the bus stop waiting for my bus to arrive, a senile woman comes up to the same stop. Immediately she catches my attention. As soon as the bus arrives, she jumps straight in and heads to the middle seat of the back of the bus. Going from bus stop to bus stop, people are changing the atmosphere and creating more and more contrasts as they're coming in and out. When I notice what is happening, I decide not to get off at my stop, but to continue the ride and observe what will happen next. The first contrast emerges as young people encircle the old woman- like young and inexperienced fellow companions around a granny with immeasurable wisdom. After some time, passengers disperse so that those dressed in white end up on the left side of the bus, those dressed in black- on the right. Some sort of battle between light and darkness, good and evil is happening right inside an ordinary bus. The dark side falls a sleep as the bright one observes everything that is happening around them. It seems as though they are ready to absorb everything new, in the quest to understand and experience more, whilst the dark side stays apathetic. As the bus drives on, the light is constantly changing, when it lits different sides of the passengers' faces- opposite to those of the people sitting on the opposite side. It is at this very moment that I decide to capture the image before my eyes. I take my camera and, balancing to the rocky road, reach the middle of the bus. Swaying there with my camera in hands, I notice that the bright side is observing me with great interest, with their opponents still drowning in oblivion. I press the button.
I love returning to popular spots when the tourists have gone home. This is in Jervis Bay, South Coast NSW. Shortly after I took this photo and the sun had sunk below the horizon, a pod of dolphins cruised serenely past me.
