The best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed. – Anne Geddes

I don’t know if I set out to capture the best images when I take pictures, not to say that I am not picky about framing them properly or what I am taking a picture of. I think some people are born with a talent to see things differently than others and it is part of our responsibility to pass our sight unto others.

Children are the true believers, and some of us are lucky enough to make the transition to adulthood without ever losing the ability to see through young eyes. – Anne Geddes

This is something I don’t know if I’m quite sure of if what I have is the ability to see through young eyes. Perhaps that is what it seems like because when I see something it is very much like seeing it for the first time or maybe somehow I’m transported to the feeling I had when I seen it or what it was like to see something for the first time. I have to admit that would explain the feeling I get when I am fixed on taking pictures or deep into drawing and even whilst writing.

Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad. – Anne Geddes

This is a very true statement and it goes the same for mother’s as well. Any woman be a mother but it takes much more to be a mom. There’s a bonding that takes place between parent and child, regardless of if the child is their own flesh and blood or is adopted or you’ve been the one chosen as caregiver or maybe a teacher. Many say that it takes a village to raise kids and to a certain extent I agree with that because I have learned from many through the years, Grandmother, aunts, Grandfather’s, cousins, father and mother and friends and teachers. The more you learn the better off you are in life and one should never stop learning and growing.
