Photography, nature, images, pictures, art
Every picture tells a story; a story silently scripted in words that are visible to the eyes; words that reach out to the soul. Words that paint vivid scenarios to the viewer. They leave impression on us that can last a lifetime - the fear or laughter in a child’s eye, a breathtaking landscape that conjures up images in our minds for years to come, a laboring hand that reflects the love it feels for its loved ones who depend on him/her.
In this unique article we present to you powerful pictures taken by Andreja Novak. Andreja is a Pharmacist by training whose passion lies in photography. Andreja does freelance photography in her spare time and her pictures have won numerous recognitions in Europe. She is kind to share some of her award-winning shots with us. Andreja lives in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
Undulating red sand dunes; a seemingly never-ending stretch of nature’s sand blanket. Imbued with rough, yet eye-catching crevices hugged on every front by smooth, calm sections. A vast red carpet that heralds the breathtaking flamboyance of the skies that gently hang over the horizon, smiling ravishingly at the scenery below. An absolute masterpiece.
The strains of time
The wrinkles on his skin, his discoloured hair and gray beard tell the story of a life shrunken into two ragged and patched bags. His dust-covered feet recount the distance he has covered on foot, scouring the city in search of victual. A sip of water out of an equally battered water bottle exerts a soothing touch on his jangled throat. Every patch of dirt on his bags, every inch of dust on his feet, the rolls on his trousers and the gullies on his shrunken skin convey the will to live; the resilience to take on the deep and unkind valleys of life with equanimity (peace of mind) - the only thing that life can never take from him.
Clad in a colorful attire, with her hair neatly packed into shape and her ear and wrist carefully embellished by resplendent jewelry, she toils away at work. She tends to her beauty with care and to her duties with energy and focus. Nothing comes between her and the chores that must be taken care of at home, yet she must maintain her beauty and radiance to keep her husband’s eyes from wandering away. She is a symbol of womanhood today!
Glows and hues underneath water
Having taken refuge under protective cold water, they radiate sunlight in scintillating colors. A staccato of colors highlighting the angles at which they stare at the sun and the richness of connections they have built with the surrounding water over time. Different colors working together to paint a harmonious collage that leaves a smile on the face of every viewer...in awe of nature’s work of art.
Running, walking; thinly clothed, heavily veiled; anonymous faces heading east and west. The story of humans in a fast-paced world. Yet, we are held together by our common humanity - a bridge that connects east to west, standing firm under the weight of our riotous activities. Offering a vista of the world around; one that still shimmers with eloquent beauty and colors despite the troubles that plague our world.
The lonely man on the river
Trees nestled in the foothills; a village on the river bank dwarfed by the hills behind. On serene waters he labors alone. The face of man a fisherman who lingers on the river, toiling diligently to provide for folks await in the village. Stalked by loneliness on the river he is comforted by the immaculate beauty around - powered by hope to make a catch; driven by love to put food on the table. A fisherman by trade, a loving father and a dedicated husband at heart!
THE SMARTEST MONKEY ALIVE!
He seriously studies the newspaper. Concerned by the socio-economic trends of the time, he peruses the daily news in search of hot investment opportunities. Perhaps, he is scanning sports news for the results of the weekend games. Head tilted to an angle and eyes focused with razor-sharp attention his hands grip the paper with tenacity while his mind digests and analyses its content.
