Lumea e mare, Universul infinit. Secunda necesara pentru a face o fotografie e incomensurabila.
Cuvintele din spatele imaginii nu se pot rosti. Ramine doar mesajul si feeling-ul pe care-l genereaza.
Si, de cele mai multe ori, doar tacerea e aceea care e singura alternativa in fata frumusetii dar si a „ipocritului” hidos.
Concursul World Press Photo are acea capacitate de-a te face sa taci atunci cind trebuie si sa vorbesti chiar daca nu vrei s-o faci.
Privind fotografia din concurs iti dai seama de fapt cit esti de mic, atit ca OM cit si ca Fotograf si te mobilizeaza si te inspira si te motiveaza ( mai ales ).Si stringi din pumni si din dinti si mergi mai departe.
Lumea din jurul tau merita….Si ii esti dator.

Cu miile de ginduri pe care imaginea le genereaza ajung si eu sa spun ca si Mark Twain: ” Lumea nu-ti datoreaza nimic. A fost aici cu mult inaintea ta.”
Si ma gindesc inca o data ca stramosii aveau acea intelepciune si bun simt al cuvintului pe care multi cei de azi nu-l cunosc cum nu-i cunosc nici macar intelesul.
