PERFECT SYMMETRY

LIFESTYLE by KRISS on 27 august 2016

PERFECT SYMMETRY I follow Ralph Smart on Instagram because I find his feed inspiring.
A few weeks ago I came to read a very interesting thing : Don’t treat people as bad as they are but as good as you are !

Wow that’s a difficult one, as the same Ralph said a few weeks later, I meditate, I eat healthy, I practise yoga but still there are people I would slap in the face.
This is the way I feel sometimes and I’m going to tell you a story that happened to me a couple of days ago.

This very kind girl called Ana called on my services for her first ever photo session.
There are people whose heart you can read through their eyes and features at a glance.
She was one of those, and I could tell straight away she had her heart in the palm of her hand.
Well, working with great folks is always a pleasure and we set about looking for the swimming pool her vacation rental allows her to use.

When we arrived there were only a few people, maybe 5 in the water, in a very large pool.
We started working, with a white dress since this actually looks great under water.
About half an hour later, when I was only starting to get interesting shots, an old lady arrived.
The kind I am sure you can refer to as “an old bat”.
Apparently she owns the place and boy she wasn’t happy ! Bathing with a dress and a camera in her communal swimming pool, not on her dead body.
We tried reasoning with her but it was pointless and quickly gave up.
We had to leave the premises and I felt really sorry for my client with whom I would have spent some extra time making beautiful underwater photography.

I decided not to illustrate this post with the beautiful pictures I managed to grab during that session, I prefer to keep them for a more interesting post ! Instead, I looked for symmetry since people often reflect what you give them (but not always).
I came up with this lake shot I took in Canada a few years back.
