photographs as a universal language

yesterday...i was checking my photos in another photography site, and as i open the main page...there I saw one of my photo in-line with others as one of the best photo of the month....just like ours here 100 best photos ... while looking at it with a feeling of happiness in my heart...i thought its uplifting to see your photo to be appreciated by people you don't know. they simple say they love it and say good job, interesting, super....but there's one comment i've read it says "A wonderful photo... Beautiful, simple composition, great impression of depth. With basic means, it shows deep emotions". as i fonder on this makes one think.... i guess photography is universal language... no matter what language barriers we had we simply understand a simple photo.

You have some really good pictures, Oboy. If photo sites weren't screwed up in calculating their top 100 photos, you'll see yours a lot more up there. Better get used to it. -- btw, we don't always take the time to comment on photos, but yours are very much liked.

Anyways, I'm not sure I agree with you that photography is a universal language. I think photography, like any art, is very subjective. I get very different reactions from my photos depending on what particular on-line community I'm in. What is universal is human emotion, and I think it is the depiction of human emotion you are capturing in your photos that makes them universal.

When I first joined this site, I was looking forward to seeing how people across the globe viewed the world as reflected in their photographs. After seeing images from both men and women living in Argentina, Spain, UK, US, Hong Kong, India, Russia, etc..., I realize that people are people no matter where they live. Cultural backgrounds may affect the way images are interpreted but we are all fascinated by the things we see around us. If a photograph was selected without knowing the photographer, it would be difficult to tell whether it was taken by someone from a small town in Texas or Thailand. The world seems much closer and smaller realizing we share a universal language of images. Thanks for the blog entry Oboy.
