I love this photo because even though its simple, it can mean so many things to so many different people and is open to a person's interpretation.
At the moment, I love hidden meanings in photos and here is a a classic example. Photography to me, not only has the ability to be an amazing visual masterpiece, but also an expression of culture, thoughts, feelings and issues which the composer feels need to be addressed. Photography has the power to inspire others to take action or consider the world from a different perspective. That's the difference between a good and an amazing photo for me.
To some this is just a photo of a lock, to others it may be the key to unlocking their creativity and inspiring them to partake in their creative journey. Photography, especially in partnership with such a powerful platform like Instagram, has the ability to help people, solve arguments, create movements, give a voice to those who don't have one, have us question our own reality and view of our world and inspire so many to take action. That is what a good photo is to me. Happy snapping everyone!
🌏Middle Asia- A #CACTUS 🌵🌵🌵;
⛔WITHOUT A FILTER⛔
🇬🇧A cactus (plural: cacti, cactuses, or cactus) is a member of the plant family Cactaceae, a family comprising about 127 genera with some 1750 known species of the order Caryophyllales. The word "cactus" derives, through Latin, from the Ancient Greek κάκτος, kaktos, a name originally used by Theophrastus for a spiny plant whose identity is not certain. Cacti occur in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Most cacti live in habitats subject to at least some drought. Many live in extremely dry environments, even being found in the Atacama Desert, one of the driest places on earth. Cacti show many adaptations to conserve water. Almost all cacti are succulents, meaning they have thickened, fleshy parts adapted to store water. Unlike many other succulents, the stem is the only part of most cacti where this vital process takes place. Most species of cacti have lost true leaves, retaining only spines, which are highly modified leaves. As well as defending against herbivores, spines help prevent water loss by reducing air flow close to the cactus and providing some shade. In the absence of leaves, enlarged stems carry out photosynthesis. Cacti are native to the Americas, ranging from Patagonia in the south to parts of western Canada in the north—except for Rhipsalis baccifera, which also grows in Africa and Sri Lanka.
