Collection goes public: Social and Environment issues

Well, I am an engineer by profession and photographer by passion..but honestly none of these were my childhood dreams :) My mom, being a botanist, always encouraged me about a clean and green environment, whereas my grand-pa, being a social worker, always encouraged me to do something for society.

Ok, now you must be laughing. With all those great courage and inspirations I ended up being an Engineer! Well, who can ignore the need of money :) So here I am also running behind money just like most other people.

But hey! I didn't totally forget about those childhood dreams. With some other friends I try to do more than just engineering and photography. We visit local orphanage over the weekends and also sometimes we drive 'Tree plantation' initiatives among them. Those kids at orphanage don't know my language and neither do I understand their words. But we are great friends and a great team! Some of us prepare calendars every year with our own photos and sell those at our office. And then the fund goes to these li'l lively kids.

Having said all 'happy' and 'sweet' things, I hardly believe anyone here can tolerate if I really tell the background stories about the kids and how they were saved from some awful situations.

It really feels great even if we make them laugh for a day! I wish one day I can do something great for them! And my best prize would be if I can also inspire them to do something great for our society.

Illiteracy, racism, pollution, child-workers...ample issues are there around us. If our creations inspire some people or can be used for something good, that feeling is worth for a life time.

I was so excited the day I found my best selling image in this social website.

Hey Alvera... believe me ....these steps are just like baby steps :) ...I feel like I really couldn't do anything significant compared to what they really need and what I really want to do...

It is a great and bright colection. By being a photographer you are being an environment carer and a social worker, because you raise awareness for those isues.
