“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything”.
– Aaron Siskind
The photograph shows daily chores in the life of common people. The elder sister is combing the hair of her younger sister in the morning. Seems very normal routine. But, it is the normal routine things which bonds the family.
Instead of focusing only on the sisters, I wanted to capture the small hut in the background with pot, utensils and make shift plastic bucket to give real feel of the picture.
“Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the soul.”
I met this old man in the park. He has a family of six children, all grown up and settled. He barely had any money in his pocket but does not like to take money from his children for his small needs. He works off and on for his needs and seemed happy and content with his life. I found this man more happy than many well to do people I have seen in life.
May be happiness is not all about what possessions you have in life ….
What are your thoughts on happiness in life? I would love to hear from you.
