    The irony of the second entry is how the “Straight Path” is not so straight in the drawing.

    Maybe it’s just me, but aren’t these pictures supposed to have some sort of meaning to them or aim to achieve something? Like the third entry for example doesn’t seem to have any significance to me, because it is just the picture of random people, so how is that any different or any more significant or relevant than the picture of any other random person ?

      “aren’t these pictures supposed to have some sort of meaning”

      Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. This photo brought a smile to my face. Apart from the fact the boy is clearly being a cheeky monkey by wearing glasses that do not belong to him, the juxtaposition of youth and adulthood caught my attention. Plus the framing and composition are spot on, in my opinion, masha’Allah.

      regarding the “straight” path, well i was going to paint it as a straight path going inward but it looked too simple and plain for my teacher at school.
      the focus was the middle path and the smaller diverted paths going into the grass..
      eh.. everyone see’s something different so its all good.
