Photography in the eyes of a poet

I feel that we don’t do just photography with camera. We bring to the act of photography all the beauty we see, all the lovely movements we share, the companionship we never want to lose, the lively & lovely world in the eyes of a poet and love and fascinating world into a photograph.

Whatever we see, we think the moments accordingly. The moments we capture in a simple photograph can never come again or reproduce in same style with same energy and enthusiasm. If you take a great photography, the lovely moments you capture in it will never go away. 

I wrote some poetry about photography.

“Photography is a happy sharing

It tells you about loving and caring

It preserved the memories that last forever

Which you can’t forget, never and never


It consists of happy and sad moments,

Sometimes cry and laughers together 

It never makes you forget or old,

No matter its bad or good weather


It is a reflection back to you

Either you lose or win

It makes a hold over you

You make virtues or sin,


It is a realistic photograph

The smile a true friendship shares for you

To add its brightness and to show

And that someone really cares for you.”

Observe this photo closely; you will feel how an artist reflects a pain in this picture. How a Poet shines the sadness of a woman with the charisma of the words in shape of poetry.

This photo has a universe in it. If you see it with the eyes of a poet, you will find it a land enriched with everything in it. 

Photography and poetry together can make a difference!

You are an artist or a poet, the image you capture in your memories can always remain refreshing and delighted. If you are a poet, you will capture any view or image according to your style or poetry’s taste bud. Whatever you see, whether it’s good or bad, you will blossom the taste and enrich love and adoration in it.

Whatever you show the world through your art matters. An Artist creates a masterpiece by photography and a Poet enriches the charm and love of it through the magic words.  A poet can revolutionize the world by the poetry and an Artist can show world the true essence of the captured image of anything. 

It’s time to fight youth unemployment through photography – Make.it.Work

In my opinion, everyone is the artist of his/her own life. It is the matter of how you draw your picture. Is it beautiful? Is it vivid? It totally depends on how you live your life ^^
