Subject : To be me is to be different...
Story behind the shot: Black centipedes are very common and I see them in hundreds near my house. This brown one stood different among them and that's when the idea of taking a shot of it struck me. This photo gives me two different yet connected feelings .. " To be me is to be different" and " I am alone " .
What made me capture the image : I switched on the camera to macro mode and focused on the brown centipede so as to throw the other ones out of focus. This implies the subject clearly. Now I think of an undeniable fact - Being different from others might make us feel lonely. Still , we need to move forward like this brown centipede instead of letting ourselves down.
Have faith in yourself ! Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Have a happy day :)
Story behind the shot : This shot wasn't planned. I had my camera with me and saw this butterfly flying around . It rested for a while on a small plant and without any thought I took a shot of this without any ideas nor any plans of how to frame the subject.
What made me capture the image : Imperfection hasn't made this butterfly stop being a butterfly. I felt that it never minded its imperfection and it went on doing its work .. being a butterfly ..
