I have huge respect for photographers. I think it’s because I can now appreciate just how difficult it is to take a good photo; whereas I didn’t before. This website has the Pictures of the Year award winners. Worth looking at – if only for five minutes.
These are my favourites:
Everyone loves Leopard Seals. It must be an amazing feeling to be that close to nature.
The grief in this picture staggers me. It seems so far away, yet so close to home. I’m reading a book at the moment called The Rules of Life. It’s full of utter tosh mainly, but it’s a really good inspirational read. In it, there is one part about how different people are actually completely the same. We all want to be loved and to fall in love. We all worry if we’re getting a bit fat, but still look forward to having that dinner that we really shouldn’t because it’s so unhealthy. This picture seems more shocking to me when I put it in those terms.
This one isn’t quite as depressing. Great energy in this. I bet we all wish we could spend our days just doing that. The old lady just strolling past tops it off for me.
