"There's nothing more ironic or contradictory than life itself." - Robert De Niro

India, Ironic, Contradiction

As Robert, puts it, it's true. While traveling through India my camera was beside me at all times. The world is full of conditions and funny ironies. Being born in the West, what grabbed me about this situation was the fact that you had this religious image next to a advertisement.

To me both things are selling you something, but this was the first time that I had ever seen the both side to side.

This always stuck with me, it's another life lesson you learn when you travel, you see something opposing things next each other and you think to yourself.

"This is the complete opposite of this" and in many ways it is and that's the strange world we live in, full of contradiction.

The wonderful thing about contradictions is sometimes they persuade us to think different and in the end of the day they are subjective, some see them, some don't seem them, that's the fascinating think about contractions.
