Peace amidst Chaos
Category: Spontaneous Moments
Photo and caption by sai santosh bangalore
This photograph was captured using a 2MP point a shoot. The extra-ordinary beauty of this pigeon, perhaps contemplating amidst all the crosses. Each cross representing a life lost in the Iraq war. Each life representing the pain of war. The pigeon is the symbol for departed souls (in Hinduism), and also a symbol for peace in many world cultures. The pigeon perhaps indicating to the human race, to move away from death and destruction. And instead, move towards working together in peace. Instead of crosses of young dead people, bury the hatred.
