Providence, A Photograph of Childhood

“We plan our lives according to a dream that came to us in our childhood, and we find that life alters our plans. And yet, at the end, from a rare height, we also see that our dream was our fate. It’s just that providence had other ideas as to how we would get there. Destiny plans a different route, or turns the dream around, as if it were a riddle, and fulfills the dream in ways we couldn’t have expected.”
– Ben Okri, Author, Poet

    I adore this photo. The characters in the background justify a demured zoom in. All the set and the scenery. It’s like recognizing a classic (photo) however seeing it for the first time. Congratulations.

      Why thank you, Antonio.

      A “classic” photo? I’ll humbly accept the compliment.
