The World Through My Eyes?

Considering my blog is about the world through my eyes, this week’s challenge should have been a cakewalk. But it wasn’t strangely. I found it hard zeroing in on a single image that as per Cheri’s specs. ” ……shows a command of your frame. Lead our eyes somewhere. Make us focus on something“.

So I stopped to think of what ‘The World’ means to me and whether my images convey my feelings.

Is it the contemplation of this buzzing, multifaceted urban scene viewed from our perch on the sky-walk above Siam Square night market? (Click on the image to view all the details)

Or this, my favourite shot from the Damnoen Saduak floating market near Bangkok? Cheri did mention light and frame…..

Is it this father-daughter duo enjoying a moment’s respite in Central Square, Bangkok, while a little one napped in his stroller……..

this family walking hand in hand into Patuxai, in Vientiane……..

or this group of friends hanging out in Gion, Kyoto?

At least one thing is certain at the end of this exercise……I am an urban creature, however much I crib about chaos and pollution. And ‘my world’ features people.

And then there are these two that ‘mean’ the world to me………

The little musical prodigy (a grandmother’s unbiased opinion), the photographer, the nerd……

…….and his brother, the world cup aspirant and unwavering Arsenal loyalist!

As you can see I have taken the easy way out……I am letting you decide 🙂

Until next time……..happy travels, no matter where life takes you.

And remember there is a whole wide world out there waiting for you.

  1. My choice might vary depending on the day, but I do prefer shots with people in them. So your grandchildren … and the one of the father and daughter enjoying a respite in Bangkok would be my choices. Thank goodness I’m not one of the judges who would have to narrow the selection down to one.

  2. I’ve never made it to Thailand while in Asia, but that photo of the floating market makes me feel as though I missed out! Here’s to second chances soon!

  3. The world through your eyes is full of life, hope and optimism my friend. It’s about celebrating the gifts of the present, of family and friends, of the places that inspired your heart. My favorite are the photographer and the soccer player. They are the hope of the future…

  4. I love the pix’s you ‘ve used for the challenge. I like that they are different from what I’ve seen others post. It’s what makes photography unique. Everyone has a very different eye. Great post, Madhu.
    p.s. the grandsons look like they are having a fun time – each in his own way. ~~~~ : – )
