A blog about all and nothing: photography, travelling and more
We usually find ourselves going back and forward in a routine that seems so normal, we don’t even bother reflecting upon. Work – Home… and in between some sleeping, eating, washing, shopping, leisure activities (if any time left). We don’t call it routine anymore, we call it life.
Nevertheless there are some moments, some encounters in this ongoing process of making money just to spend it the next day, which have the power to ‘enlighten’ us briefly. It could be a song, the smile of a loved one, a book, a piece of art. There is something, usually small and on a first glance unimportant, that screams in our heads: ‘Calm down and take a moment to appreciate that you are here and now! There is so much more to life than work, money, social position, paying bills and getting screwed by the tax system.’
I find street art to be a quite good example. Why? Well…
– It is accessible -> It’s there! On the streets! On your way to buy bread or meet a friend.
– It is free -> You don’t need a ticket or a fancy cocktail dress to have access to it.
– It has a purpose (
and this is not to make some extravagant artist rich :p) -> Sometimes it presents a strong social message, sometimes it’s just fun to look at. Either way it makes the city more interesting and beautiful.
So… any thoughts about street art or life in general? 🙂
