Life is NOT FAIR!!!
#photographydiscussion

PICTURE THIS....

Your clothes are torn or missing buttons, your plastic sandals are held together by tape, there are fleas jumping on your feet, mosquitoes biting you, there is sewage in the streets outside your home and you live in a room made up of corrugated metal sheets. 

While on the other side of the barbed wires is group of photographer wearing clothes with Nike logos, boots to protect their feet from the fleas/sewage, mosquitoes that magically avoid them, expensive camera gear, iphones and more...

And at this time you cant help but to think to yourself: LIFE IS JUST NOT FAIR!!

I am not a photo journalist...but while taking this photos I couldn't help but think about the emotions she may have experienced while we were photographing her. Feel free to share your experience. 

FYI: This photo was taken in the Barrio (Slums) of Nicaragua on our recent trip there. #tglnicaragua , +Empowerment International, +The Giving Lens 

Enjoy & Share.

       Importance of drinking water at the correct time maximizes its effectiveness on the Human body :

1.) 2 glasses of water after waking up helps activate internal organs.

2.) 1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal helps digestion.

3.) 1 glass of water before taking a bath helps lower blood pressure.

4.) 1 glass of water before going to bed avoids stroke or heart attack.

7 FACTS ABOUT CRYING & TEARS :

Crying is an emotional release and if you feel the need to cry you should let it out. Here are a few facts about the act of crying. I thought they were interesting, so of course I wanted to share.

1) Emotional tears have a different chemical composition than tears caused by irritants, such as onions.

2) Crying in public was considered normal until the Industrial Revolution, when diligent unemotional workers were needed to operate machinery.

3) Men’s tear ducts are smaller than women’s tear ducts.

4) One major stress hormone released from the body via tears, prolactin, is found in much higher concentration in women's bodies than in men's. (This makes sense when you consider that the hormone is also implicated in the synthesis of breast milk).

5) Babies cry but they don't produce tears until one to three months after birth.

6) When a person cries and the first drop of tears comes from the right eye.

7) In Japan, crying for emotional release is all the rage, or so reports the Independent. The Japanese call it the "crying boom" - everyone wants a bit of sadness in their lives. Instead of going to a karaoke bar after work to wind down, businesspeople watch weepy films (called "tear films") at these crying clubs. There is also a huge demand for sad TV dramas and books, each graded by its ability to induce tears.

monochrome beauty


Australian artist Nanami Cowdroy, combines her mixed Japanese and European roots to create a unique style. Using characters and detailed objects, her work combines elements of various styles and cultures. 

Her signature detailed style reflects a refined monochrome pallette with her name ‘Nanami’ (meaning ‘Seven Seas’ in Japanese) stamped in red. Fluid line-work and watery creatures are some of her favourite subjects and distinctive forms which feature in her artworks.

You can also get her art as skins for your Gadgets :)
