The World We Live In - Lumea in care traim






















All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow
And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very mad world ... mad world
Enlarging your world
Mad world

Gary Jules - Mad world

Wonderful scenes. The whole has an atmosphere... one can feel how people live, and this is one part of the art of photography!

I like the faces in these photos: the old, worn out as well as the young ones.

I think these faces , unlike the faces in Gary Jules' lyrics, do have an expression, seem to have a tomorrow, and know where they're going to.

yes,... life it's about living, and dying, and celebrating, and about children, and grandparents,...
yes,... impressive pictures,... with this world, which sometimes seems to be mad...

A very interesting perspective with your holiday photos.

Once again, Wind, you have created a curiosity within me to see the Romania of your photographs.

You do bring the people and the countryside to life. It is very enjoyable to visit your page.

Bravo.

Looks like a festive celebration is being enjoyed by all. Your photos are fantastic once again. Are those traditional clothes of the Romanian people?.

O serie minunata de viata. Monocroma si colorata, cu tineri si batrani, cu ras si plans. Te indeamna la meditatie. Sa ai un sfarsit de spatamana frumos, Wind!

Hi Wind,

Very nice photos combined by the nice lyrics.

pharaonx said...

intr-adevar mi-s asa de familiare scenele desi nu le-am vazut niciodata. nici pe oamenii acestia nu cred ca i-am vazut in viata mea, desi am impresia ca de abia am trecut de ei pe strada.merg spre neunde in razboi cu toata lumea.
bine surprins.

Alberto Oliver said...

Beautiful, so many faces, so many shades and colors. So many different ways to see the world, but one single story to be told. That of the world we live in, that of the human kind.
Take care dear friend, and enjoy the week !! =)

Beautiful slice of life. I love the way you captured this interesting culture. The faces and costumes are wonderful.

robert said...

Da! Poti spune ca este o parte din lumea in care traim... Realismul este desavarsit, poate chiar prea reale.

Eu unul insa prefer acele fotografii in care te apuca dorul de Vega si constelatia Lebedei :)

Fotografii frumoase iti doresc!
