The Way 3...

Posted by
Pavan Kaul (Mumbai, India) on 28 May 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.

Perfection in mono, a scene of blissful serenity as the sea meets the land, and man goes about his daily routines as his ancestors have no doubt for decades and centuries. When achieved with the correct balance, there is a harmony and balance between man and Little Earth, and past civilisations had that balance whereas today in so many ways, on so many levels, we do not, wishing instead to control and destroy in equal measures.

Yes, every action has a consequence, an impact, and every deed can be done with care and attention, respect and awareness if we simply open our eyes, hearts and souls, think with a compassion and conscience, and strive for that harmony and balance that once existed. A stunning frame in so many ways, captured with an eye that truly sees. First class as always, my friend.
