this is so interesting,
its one of those images you read what you want into,

i personally read a lot into it,

the clear clean beginning of school life,
getting more darker and more complicated,

just for its own merits a beautiful image......
love it
paree

just shown this to my husband,
and ask him what he thinks it represents,
his view is

the child at five clean and like his parent,
about to join the school and becoming a clone of every one else.

i would love to know what your interpretation is,
if you have one.

Hello there. Thanks you for showing interest in my latest photographs Smile Must admit, still don't understand most of things concerning awards and voting here on photozine, but never mind that.
As for interpretation, well, no one can be wrong when looking at a conceptual photograph, and I find both of your
interpretations to be valid and true, as for life and as this photograph i've made out of some marbles and crystals i had.
I was mainly thinking about the transition then a persons psychology, energy and views change after entering life and education,
and of course, as your husband said, the system does try to depersonalize individuals and to corner creativity - that part is
asu know, depict by using of different coloration with the crystals Smile also, white meaning full spectar of potential, and purity as well...
Even thou it is sort of a compelling theme i would call it some what classical approach to representing the idividual/child versus the system/education/machine - that life is so much about.

Thank you both for taking the time with this one Smile
