Life – as it crosses my path. Stockholm Serendipity is a selection of thoughts I choose to write about. Moments which have stuck with me, topics I ponder and situations I muse about. The things I stumble upon. The serendipity in my life.
“Have another cookie!”, he said with that content smile of his, arms happily up in the air. But something in his raised eyebrows, tensed forehead and closed fists made me doubt his sincerity. Perhaps he wanted that last cookie all to himself? Was his belly not that satisfied after all?
For The Daily Post‘s Weekly Photo Challenge I looked through my photos from Cambodia because I knew I had a great picture of the Angkor Wat temples at dawn, reflecting clearly in the waters between them and me with a bright yet soft peachy pink backdrop. But as I was about to pick the photo I had intended I browsed through these others photos that yet again caught my eye. I soon realized that this photo of the tree much more represented the meaning of “reflections” to me.
So for this Weekly Photo Challenge I chose to represent not the literal reflections of an object in say water, but rather the moment of reflection that comes to me when I look at this photo. How nature is greater than us all, and even though we humans directly and indirectly destroy nature, it is so powerful and has its course. These buildings are from the 1100’s, and trees which are older than those constructions completely reclaim their space which was intended for them, growing their roots as it was set out in their DNA, yet somehow manage to coexist with these man-made buildings.
A reflection upon mankind’s coexistence with nature.
