My Photo of the Week - 5th

My blog for the most exciting photo for me


For my fifth post “My Photo of the Week” I choose this one:

Photo by hervinsyah

I apologize for the blog’s discontinuity, half time I haven’t free time, the other half I don’t find a photo that inspires me to write.
This week surprised me @hervinsyah ‘s album, particularly the last two photos with the Horizon. The event is a funeral, and here you can think … “But Gibri, what are you doing?!?!? A funeral??”
A subject that should to be taken with care, I can’t comment sadness and regret for the loss of a dear person.
There are life, death, traditions and ethical values ​​expressed in a single image. Many elements have made me curious; people at the center have a military posture and contribute to a particular
orientation of the photo, a rigid and perfect geometry, but this rigidity is attenuated by children that trying to climb up, attracted by this event.

Thank you all for your support for my blog!

Please: for the propretary of the photo, if you don’t like this post, just say and I delete it.

Italian version:

Vorrei scusarmi per la discontinuità del blog, metà delle volte non ho tempo, l’altra metà non riesco a trovare la foto che mi ispiri a scrivere.
Questa settimana mi ha sorpreso l’album di @hervinsyah , in particolare le ultime due foto con la horizon. l’evento è un funerale, e qui direste… “ma Gibri che fai?!?!? Un funerale???”
un tema che sicuramente si deve prendere “con le molle”, non si può commentare la tristezza e il rammarico per la perdita di un caro.
Ci sono vita, morte, tradizioni e valori etici espressi in un’unica immagine. Più di un elemento mi ha incuriosito; le persone al centro hanno una postura militare e contribuiscono ad un particolare orientamento della foto, una geometria rigida e perfetta, ma a sforzare tale rigidità ci pensano i bambini che cercando di arrampicarsi, incuriositi da tale evento.
