Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #75 – Nostalgic

It’s time for Lens-Artists photo challenge. This week’s challenge is “Nostalgic” by Tina Schell.

We’re living in a modern world. Time rushes by and instead of creating things that remain, our stuff is made for quick obsolescence. Electronic gear without an option to repair or even replace a weak battery. Instead of writing on paper, we’re writing on computers and save our work in changing media formats. A few decades ago, there were changing clothes 2 times a year: summer and winter. In some regions special clothes for spring and fall were necessary. Nowadays it feels like fashion changes every month. This results in enormous hills of waste and increased usage of resources. The companies try to make more and more money regardless of the resources and the needs of the people.

Because of this, more and more people try to get off of this rush. Small villages in the countryside and special houses offer treatments to slow your life down to bring you mentally back to the ground.

Take care!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light!

dsc_9437-ec_w

This weeks assignment for the photo challenge at The daily post is to show the source of light in a photo.

I took this one two or three years ago. The young lady is illuminated by a burning candle. The kind of light, we love especially during the dark months.

In my opinion, it shows, what light can do: enlighten the darkness and warm our lives.

Now, at the end of a year, you can look back and review the enlightening moments of the last year, or your live. These memories keep your heart young. They remain, when you get old.

Take a light with you in your heart.
