This week’s Photo Challenge is “Story.” They say “Every picture tells a story.” When you are talking about people – yes, it does, although the stories are barely revealed by the camera. This challenge suggested that a story is a series of events. However, I was thinking of the story that each person, each individual holds inside him or herself. I often wonder, when traveling or on the road, what that story is. I will never know these stories, but here are a few that I would have liked to hear about…
Somewhere in Sri Lanka. What is the story of the woman with the umbrella – who is she talking to?
Damien Williams is not afraid to tell his story – one of challenges, struggles and success. Here he is at the launch of his book “Grab You Some Lemons.”
At Old Harbour Bay fishing beach, this man is cleaning the scales off a catch. What is his life like? What is he thinking about, as he works?
This family has a story to tell… This master craftsman (centre) and his wife and two children had to flee for their lives from the tsunami that hit Sri Lanka in 2004 near the beautiful town of Galle. Over 30,000 Sri Lankans died from the tsunami – including 1,700 passengers on a train.
I met this lovely woman in Maggoty, St. Elizabeth during a National Integrity Action event. We enjoyed chatting.
This gentleman was among those citizens of Maggoty, St. Elizabeth at the NIA Information Fair. I would love to have heard his story, too.
Back in rural Sri Lanka, I saw this brick home. Who did the motorbike belong to? What was this family’s story? Did they use the bullock cart?
