134. Circle of Life
“The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What’s that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you’re too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating…
…and you finish off as an orgasm.”

This photograph got developed naturally. Initially I just saw this old lady sitting on this swing. The first thing that came to my mind is how a child and a old person are same. After that I went there in the park and sat in front of them. After sometime everybody forgot about me. And that is when I started photographing. After some time this girl came and started playing on the swing. That was when I imagined my final photograph. The old woman and a young child, both at the swing but with a difference. The old woman just want to see, she has lost all the enthusiasm to explore. While the child is full of energy.
After spending a lot of time I am not able to get what I wanted but it is close. I am getting more and more observant of my surroundings. Sometimes I feel the desire to manually control things and create a photograph. But to create something in this manner gives you a vast area to explore. You get all types of models, their different styles in their natural surroundings. It is just a little more complicated but I would like to master it rather than learn to manually create them.
