Serenity

β€œWe are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing? (136-137)”

WPC: Transformation

β€œWhat transforms this world is β€” knowledge. Do you see what I mean? Nothing else can change anything in this world. Knowledge alone is capable of transforming the world, while at the same time leaving it exactly as it is. When you look at the world with knowledge, you realize that things are unchangeable and at the same time are constantly being transformed.”
― Yukio Mishima,Β The Temple of the Golden Pavilion

WPC: Experimental

We went to the London Mayor Fireworks last Saturday. It was preceded by a parade, which we missed except for the tail end of it. The fireworks started at around 5.20 and lasted for 15 mins. I tried to experiment with the way I capture them and to some extent, I did get a few good ones. Here are a few of them as part of this week’s photography challenge.Β exp1exp2exp3exp4exp5
