Liberty Square

Weekly Photo Challenge : Shine

This week’s challenge is Shine (click the link for other interpretations).

When I saw the challenge, I thought of the very shiny St George on his column in Liberty Square, Tbilisi. A monument I see almost every day, here with and without a star filter effect.

Liberty Square: Tavisuplebis Moedani: photographic possibilities

I think the more we take photographs, the more open we become to what is around us and we see new possibilities. I regularly catch a bus from Liberty Square (Tavisuplebis Moedani) in Tbilisi. In the centre of the square is a monument of St George. At first I took photos of the monument in Liberty Square, as most tourists do.

I hear birds and see a sparrow on a bush in the square.

Looking around I also notice the Spring flowers.

Each day I see new possibilities from the same place. I think photography can open our eyes to the beauty around us. Everyday there is something new.
