Everything we need is a chance to lead a fulfilling life, which means to have the oppottunity to face whatever may come. There are things, that every man needs to overcome. In my opinion they are artefacts and mind skills that prepare one for his own development. In every surroundings there’s a specific presence contributed by the humanity’s desire to leave a trace behind .To me that is an interesting phenomena giving life to the ordinary things. That is what I wanted to capture here
