Life’s journey is very interesting;
often times it gets unfocused,
unclear, fuzzy, and blurry.
Often times, we wish we could focus,
make sense out of everything in front of our eyes,
figure out what is beyond the horizon.
The image above is from a bike ride at night
a few months ago;
haven’t been the passenger after that
Only rarely I become the passenger.
On those rare occasions when I do sit behind
my camera goes snap snap and snap
Was totally aware my camera cannot take a still image
at the speed of the bike. And yet, I tried to capture the street lights,
the ambiance of that moment, the romance in the air;
to capture other bikes with the “pairs” on its back taking a leisurely stroll
down “Boduthakurufaanu magu” under the fig trees,
the ocean on the right making rhythmic music,
the cool atmosphere, “kurunbaa gaadiaas” on the left.
The image came out totally unfocused;
and yet, I just loved it and never even thought of deleting it.
Those lights tell me a beautiful story with their fuzzy lines.
In the light of the day, the image will be totally different!
That’s just how life is. There is beauty in everything…
I believe that’s the only way to stay sane in this crazy world
