Ambitious - The Philippines
A tall steel electric pole resolutely reaches up to the sky while the horizontal steel wires try to tie it down. Being ambitious, the pole remains sturdy in its attempts to soar high, disregarding the wires and the looming dark clouds. Taken from a moving car on a road trip in The Philippines, the angle of the image emphasizes the ambition of the pole.
Aligned - Gum Department Store, Moscow, Russia
As the football-shaped lamps find a fine balance on the railings, the black and white lines and curves in this image, remind one of a football field. All the lines and the lampshades have been symmetrically aligned in the composition. Taken at the famous Gum Departmental Store, near the Red Square in Moscow.
Undaunted - St. Petersburg State Circus, Russia
As the trapeze artist gracefully jumps down, the camera catches her between the ropes that tie the safety net. This physically-challenging art is about mental strength, discipline, practice and precision. Only a person with an undaunted spirit can become a trapeze artist. The photograph, of this unforgettable act, was taken at the St. Petersburg State Circus in Russia.
Joyful - Lalitpur, Nepal
Soft toys, usually, bring out a smile in everyone’s face. A smiling chimp resting against a bed, enjoying the sun, makes a joyful image. The patterns of the chimp’s shirt, the bedcover and the floor complement each other to create a happy scene. The photograph was taken at Lalitpur, Nepal.
