Late night photography; while I was at the emergency hospital waiting to hear from the doctors will my mother in law live or die, I was looking around and snap some photos, to pass the time. You can always find something interesting if you train yourself to look around. This is the snapshot of two small holes in the floor that looked to me like some evil eyes. But maybe I was just too tired.

When you truly don't care what people think about your work, and you just walk the streets and take photos for decades. And you don't care about the camera either, because photography was never about the gear..
ART IS A COPY OF REALITY
“Art is, in a way, creating something out of nothing. But photography, in its very essence, creates something from nothing, it is a device for copying existing images.
Then why not start from this assumption of copying so that we can get closer to the essence of a photograph. It has no meaning to create artwork by one’s own aesthetic and concepts; however, when people take photos, one’s aesthetic and memory are always included. This is a kind of everlasting contradiction. This contradiction is acceptable.
The world is not only one world, but the world itself is scattered, we just copy these scattered worlds by using photography.”

Great words from the master of street photography. I agree completely. What do you think?
Two women in front of the garage, preparing flowers for selling on a Woman's day. While some women get the flowers and chocolates on the 8th March, some women see this day as an opportunity to earn money.
Happy Women’s Day to all the women around the world!
Only god and I know where I would be without them.
