Splash of life

15 Mar 2011


“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”

 

Just a small reminder to everyone, life is too short to hold grudges, hatred, jealousy, anger, resentment, sorrow, grief, pain and whatever else troubling your mind.

 

When you step into the sea, and you are hit by an unsuspecting wave, which sweeps you off your feet, you yell in terror and excitement as you are droped much further away, you make an attempt to get up, laugh it off and walk again towards the wave to face another one. Thats how our troubles should be. Laugh it off, and prepare to face yet another one. Get a splash of life.

 

2 songs which whenever I hear makes me sing along, and gives me the spash I need.

 

What a wonderful world

 

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

 

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

 

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I love you.

 

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

 

Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds”

 

Dont worry about a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin: dont worry about a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right!

 

Rise up this mornin,
Smiled with the risin sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin, (this is my message to you-ou-ou:)

 

Singin: dont worry bout a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin: dont worry (dont worry) bout a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right!

 

Rise up this mornin,
Smiled with the risin sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin, this is my message to you-ou-ou:

 

Singin: dont worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. dont worry!
Singin: dont worry about a thing – I wont worry!
cause every little thing gonna be all right.

 

Singin: dont worry about a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right – I wont worry!
Singin: dont worry about a thing,
cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin: dont worry about a thing, oh no!
cause every little thing gonna be all right!

 

I requested Zaver a professional model not to look at the waves so that she would not know when it hits her, and it would create a more surprised, natural moment.

    and i must say one can click photographs,but there r few who can creat a masterpieces..and u r the best in doing this…i feel its the photographer who creats image in his mind and presents it to the world because of his imagination and ofcourse thru his skill…and man i had been following ur clicks …and u r the best in what u do…i wud love to learn this art of showing the beauty in simple things..keep up the good work

    Hi Sanjeev,
    Thanks for your comments.. The trick is ofcourse to click as many snaps as possible so that your % of getting a good snap increases.
