893 words - 4 pages

JourneyVisual RepresentationResponsesWith an artistic eye and skilful mind, the anonymous photographer has captured the essence and immensity of the physical human journey. The first moments of life is contrasted to the last in this black and white shot. The picture shows just how much one can change throughout their life, making it hard to believe that the hand we see holding the baby was once a baby...or that the baby we see will one day have hands like that...it's both scary and fascinating. The concept of physical journey is that in whatever context, it is inevitable.Nothing, in its entirety, can ever stay the same, physically and mentally. Everything is on a journey. Time itself is the catalyst for this journey and for the changes that will result, as this picture so delicately portrays.Since this is an image, there are no language devices used as such.

Again, like many things, I can relate this picture, or the thoughts that it makes me heed to my beliefs and religion. Our physical existence, a short lifespan of, say, 80 years - is so short, not even to be compared to the blink of an eye next to the 'life' after this one.We are given this life, as a practice ground, no - as our major exam, for the next world. This physical world often fools us that we are but physical beings. I believe we are but spiritual beings, living a physical existence.Basically, we have a very short time on this earth to do the things we want and must do. By that I don't mean tasting every drink there is or doing the...
