  1. The global poverty reduction strategies need to be revised to face the new challenges, but until we find a way of solving the ongoing conflicts we should apply this simple principle : “Treat everyone as you would like to be treated”

    I love the stories that your pictures/soul tell.

    • Thank you , Tommy. Yes you are right. And the photo is not only about fear, it is also about the thousands of refugees, stuck in freezing weather at ‘suddenly’ closed borders within the European Union..Women and small children spending the night in the open, no shelter, no food , in the rain and cold. It is not only heartbreaking to see but a total disgrace that we, so rich, do so little and some governments like the UK do NOTHING at all, only talk. With ‘we’, I mean rich, mega rich companies that could so easily relieve these mega problems and not leave it to a few well meaning folk . Anyway..the papers are full of it , I do not need to lecture anybody!! xx

  2. A very difficult dilemma for Europe and the rest of the civilized world. Unfortunately the problem of displaced people is only going to grow worse as wars spread and climate change is going to start having its effects.
    Powerful image.

    • Yes, indeed, thank you for your attention…these are posts I agonise over as I know that most folks prefer to see ‘pretty’ photos..but the harrowing stuff seen on tv with the refugees being stopped and left in the freezing cold all night does seem beyond belief and prays on my mind, this post is one way of ‘off loading’ I suppose. xx


      • I understand what you mean about people preferring to see ‘pretty’ photos, I find the same thing on my blog. I don’t post ‘harrowing’ pictures but I do find that people in many instances prefer beautiful pictorial stuff, rather than some of my more “experimental”(!) offerings. But, the thing is, I think we should post what we choose to, rather than being swayed by popular preferences – I hope your blog will go on in that vein. A

Poet Rummager

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
