Pathway to life by pedro-kun Pathway to life by pedro-kun
Well, firstly I'd like to thank some friends for encouraging me into the world of photography... They know who they are; I hope you all like it (even though it's not a very good photo)... and thanks :)

And now, for the reason why I took this photo:
I was just sitting at my school's library... and from the point where I stood, I looked to the door... the door which leads to life.
I feel so close to the door now... but I once sat by that desk and read those books; there, I studied and studied... I saw many great AND bad times pass me by while sitting there... and now, I feel ready to live.
I feel like I can get up and open the door, for I have sat by the desk and I have read the books. They were the obstacles; the door IS my goal. And now, I will reach it. I will live.

(this is a tribute to school life.. for the many things it has taught me; for showing me what it's like to be happy and also how all your dreams can quickly fade away; for teaching how to live and fight for what I want)


Well, the description is over, technical details are something like I simulated the DOF (my camera does not allow me to do that by nature...) and some color manipulation was done too (messing with saturations, etc). All done in GIMP.

Sim senhora, antes de mais, os meus parabéns por finalmente teres ultrapassado o receio de tirar fotos e admitires que as consegues tirar. Ficou muito boa. A composição é muito boa e as cores não podiam estar melhores.

Segundo, eu não podia ficar indiferente a uma descrição dessas... Acho que és o exemplo perfeito de alguém que lutou por algo na vida. Ou melhor, alguém que lutou para viver. Soubeste aproveitar os maus momentos que se passaram e tornaste-os indispensaveis para aprenderes. A vida na escola ajuda-nos a entrar no mundo ao qual temos medo de enfrentar. Mas ao mesmo tempo prende-nos a algo forte demais para deixar largar... É lá que ganhamos as amizades que duram para sempre, é lá que tentamos dar o nosso melhor.. Estudando e criando laços que nos fazem ser aquilo que somos... Que nos guiam para um futuro incerto mas sempre com esperança. Não é a escola-edificio que nos ensina. Mas sim quem por lá passou. Quem vai deixar a marca lá. E u já deixaste a tua. :)
Por isso é que dizes que estás pronto para viver. Porque já conquistaste todos aqueles que te acompanharam.

ok, parei por aqui com o meu testamento. Apenas digo-te que, quando passares a porta, mereces levar contigo todas essas recordações. É com elas que vais saber viver e ter um bom futuro. Porque mereces ser feliz.

Os meus parabéns. :aww: *

lol, de nada. Fotografias como essa nao merecem um simples comentário como o meu, porque envolvem uma vida. Logo, merecem ser admiradas e tratadas como um simbolo daquilo que és. ;)

thank you for the kind words; i'm glad you liked it :)

(actually, 19-28 is related to how books are organised in their shelves in that library ;))

Well, you can think of it that way, especially because the books on the shelf are related to History... which is, itself, related to dates and such :)

(the inclined ones are about World War II)
