Congo: 50 Years, 50 Faces

Filed under: Photography — by AmiraAK @ 9:52 am

This is from today’s The Guardian.

The faces, and the stories that are told in the little blurb under each picture, are simply beautiful.  Beautiful!

Ahangama, Sri Lanka: Fishermen wait to catch fish as they sit atop stilts

I was struck by this photo from this morning’s Guardian.  Those who know me, know that I don’t function very well in the morning – at least not until I’ve had my morning coffee, and another one half an hour later. For these fisherman to be standing on stilts so early in the morning waiting for their daily ‘bread’ as it were, to me is incredible. Not only does it require patience, it requires skill and balance and a whole different perspective on life.

Here are some of the best summer photos they received from their readers:

I like to check the 24 Hours in Pictures in the Guardian every day, or whenever I can.  They often have some beautiful pictures.  This one I found to be a bit surreal!  The monkeys, the pigeons, the dog, the umbrella and the two men sitting on something that looks like a ledge, looking so peaceful!
