the REAL and the NOT REAL 在真实与不真实之间 ...

What is REAL or NOT REAL is often always based of our own individual perception ...


The life and death of this begger in the streets of Melaka is certainly never noticed ....
and he begs for a mere few $ for his meal of the day ....



And yet a fake Mona Lisa painting is immediately recognizable, 
and the person in the painting may just be a fiction of imagination of the painter ....
And this one fetches $ 1500 ....

The question is which is MORE REAL then the other one !

indeed our perception of the world is vector that leads us through life.
interesting counterpoint images.
the first one is very very tragic.

Well, Wong they say life is never fair. And it isn't, that's for sure! Tragic destiny for that man and how many are in the whole world! And we do not have time ot do not want to see them! It's really sad. Great picture, the first one, very sensitive. And yes, you made your point!

Gli stati d'animo e la sensibilità del momento contribuiscono certamente a leggere ..... e quindi fotografare ...... la realtà che ci circonda .....

Dos buenas imagenes para una buena reflexión.
Hoy día es tan habitual que no le damos importancia.
no solo pasa ahí wong, está pasando en muchos paises.
Por qué no somos más sensibles a esta triste realidad ??...
Saludos, que tengas buen fin de semana.

You are so right, Wong, with your question!!
Of course the first photo is the reality..
It is a shame, but...
The colors are incredible!

Good photos and good story telling. It will always be a subjective way of seeing.
Have a great week-end!

The picture above is so fantastic, I mean, it has nothing to envy to a picture in National Geographic or whatever. And the second has so many things to say... love them Wong!

Great sensitive images and a philosophic question! I think the reality doesn`t exist. Only the subjektive impression of the viewer is his world an reality. But these are difficult questions my friend.... Have a nice weekend! Hugs from Luzia.
