This truly is a great photograph. It reminds us of how we aspire to achieve all things with youth on our side. It also confirms that in with the passage of time we acquire wisdom accepting that ultimately our lives are in God's hands. Excellent shot!
I love this photo so much. It captures the essence of two separate souls in one similar world of emotions. beautiful
very nice shot Mrs. Ates.. ( insan temalı fotoğraflar üzerinde çalışmayı seviyosun anlaşılan, tebrikler Merve ;)
Awesome theme of the pic !!
But seems to be 2 super-imposed pics.... considering that the wooden part of the window frame can neither reflect nor be transparent , as it seems to be doing in this pic.
Reflections of the mind. A picture of a thousand words. Ones imagination can span a lifetime here between the young and the old - past and present. One of the best photos on this " Photo Of The Day".
Wow, it look like a spirits images, it can be us, the past the future, the questions and the regrets, the input and the output, the desire and the confirmation.
Is it just me who somehow saw resemblance between the boy and the man? My imagination is they are identical; Memories of his youth suddenly flash back to an old man while reading a book. Vividly he sees himself looking down, sitting by the handrail. Smell of seawater. Seagulls. Wind. He now remembers everything.
I find layers upon layers every time I look at it! The turmoiled part of the waves troubling the young man outside is reflected upon the chest of the old man who is supposed to be calm and wise. The journey has not ended yet and the solace sought through the years is now searched for in the holy texts. Amazing my friend!
I'm usually more a fan of a landscapes and nature, but this photo really caught my attention. There is such a story left to the imagination in this photo! I love it!
@Madhumita Pal the window was probably 2 panels, one on the inside and one on the outside with a wooden piece running through the middle
