Discovery of how to create, maintain and manipulate fire is one of the primary factors that led to the survival of the homosapians species. Our near genetically identical brother homoerectus failed to thrive the bitter ice age and eventually succumbed to the cold. Seeing, as they slowly disintegrated, the memories of their lost loved ones in the reflections of the fiery ice that had taken over their once sun drenched land.
I love this photograph. Not quite sure why. It may not be the most classically artistic, technically talented or even beautiful. However, something about the stream of ships coming to an end of a long dock moves me. I feel irony.
Ships indicate moving forward. They have led us to discover lands, take us to old places, transport goods towards new markets. Ports build metropolises, lead others with hope to travel to new opportunity.
The blurred reflection of the boats in this photo further my fascination with the idea of uncertainty. Where we strive to go, will we ever truly get there? If we do, will it resemble what we had imagined?
All things we can ponder through reflections.
