"Free in Lights and Colors" – Collection of Fine Art Photographs
For us, being free means to move in whichever direction we choose. In our hearts, it is this freedom of movement that enables us to organize and govern our lives. When we are not comfortable in one place, we simply move to another destination that seems more welcoming – a place that is more closely aligned with our values.
By sharing this artistic photograph collection of birds in flight, we hope to illuminate the abstract ideas of freedom, abandonment, and departure towards new horizons. We hope that these photos are realistically breathtaking that you can hear the flapping of wings, and that you will be encouraged to gain altitude in your life and in your daily actions. For us, the flight of a bird is a true definition of what it means "to be free". Above all, it illustrates humans, who elevate to further heights by choosing the best decisions in life.
We chose a professional activity and an occupation that allowed us to manage our time and the goals we wish to achieve. Through this decision, we have the freedom to choose our destiny. Not only are we free to manage our time and goals, we are also accountable to ourselves alone. Of course, we do have some constraints, but they are both minimal and acceptable given this way in which we have chosen to lead our lives.
In our minds, we are free people. Every day we are thankful for how lucky we are. We often think of this quote.
I am free because I know that I am morally responsible for all my acts.
--Robert Heinlein/Stranger in a Strange Land.
To illustrate this state of freedom, we chose to show flying birds. When migrating, birds are at the mercy of the carrier winds. They settle in places that are adequate in food with few predators (either animal or human). These birds in flight perfectly illustrate the freedom of movement which is so important to us.
For this collection of artistic photographs, we chose to incorporate color. Through color, we have been able to magnificently highlight the skies as a background-- literally carrying these stunning creatures in flight.
Birds are not just free animals who can live as they please. For us, their flight symbolizes elegance, speed, and play. When a bird flies, it is not bothered with road signs, traffic lights, or transportation rules. The bird may choose the most direct way to reach a destination without the use of a compass. To navigate properly, the bird simply relies on its natural sense of direction-its instinct. This is fascinating to us, and we truly envy this freedom of movement.
