A moment in life #49 – The Unbearable Lightness of Being

I haven’t posted my non-food photos in a while {not that I have that many to share around}. So, here it is, something I quite like – a shot of an iris petal.

The name of the book/movie “the unberable lightness of being” popped into my head as I reviewed the picture.

“”Anyone whose goal is ‘something higher’ must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”

– Milan Kundera

    I'm always inspired by your photos, Anh. You actually made me really want to get myself a better camera. I need your advice in this: Can an amateur like me begin with a Canon 50D?

    it's not the camera, it's the photographer.
