"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

You Will Never Know What It Is Like To Be Me

I've had just enough time to...   try to feel what it is like to be someone I'm not

Taken while strolling through the street of Munich

I stood apart from the crowd
You won’t understand the feelings
You have not been there
But you thought you did
I took those well meaning sympathies
For what they are – well meaning
But don’t try to tell me you understand
It only pained me though I smiled
If you are three feet tall
Have a white face, pointed nose
And wear a tall red cap

Then tell me –
You know what it is like to be me

    I was strolling through the street of Munich when I came across this man standing rock still with a sad expression frozen on his face. He is an interesting subject so I shot him. People passing him by or stopped to take a shot. But all the time, he just stood there immobile until...

    ....dropped a coin into his pail. Then, his faced lighted up into a big smile as if by doing so you have broken a spell. He then came to life and shake your hand, waved at you or take a photo with you before he returned to his frozen state until the next coin dropped..

    as ever... you are so sensitive..and empathic...
    i've worked with people who have differences...
    and you have said it exactly... exactly right...

    This is wonderfully poignant.
    Love the sad expression perfectly captured.
    And the thoughtful words so well stating the feelings of an outsider.

    I like your title ...
    street artists may look sad or happy...
    Just like in our heart, no one knows.
