Oops, I really fell off the blogging bandwagon. A whirltrip trip back to the UK did it; between catching up with friends and family, and having limited internet, this blog fell off my radar.
Still, I’m back now, and what better place to kickstart me than with WordPress’ weekly photo challenge. I’m not much of a street photographer, but I have huge admiration for those who are, and I love the glimpses into other people’s hearts that good street photography captures. Street photography is one of those wonderful mediums where you realise that as a bunch of indivudals go, we’re often not all so different when it comes right down to it.
As I’m a bit of a wuss myself, I don’t have many appropriate photos or the chance to take any this week, so my submission is a repeat from one I posted about way back in March, in my second only post to this blog.
Then I posted a desaturated version where I left only the red of the raincoats, but I thought it might be more “real” to post the original here. This was snapped in the Piazzo San Marco, Venice, on total reflex as soon as the splashing pair caught my eye. I love that no amount of rain was going to stop this couple’s fun in the City of Romance.
The title comes from a friend’s answer to “the meaning of life”, and it’s one of the life lessons I try to hang on no matter what. Sometimes easier said than done, but everything really worthwhile takes effort, right?
