Courage to Move Forward, by Sharad Patel

That’s not fog by the way. It’s snow. Heavy snow with even heavier wind! Went snow shoveling house to house for the first time & it was a learning experience. After hour and a half of shoveling, we were headed to the search for next house, and that’s when I took this shot. Courage to move forward: The guy in the van seemed to have courage to move forward despite of difficulties. Funny enough, even Police, Ambulance and Fire Dept. cars and trucks were stuck in snow.

Photographer: Sharad Patel (New York, USA) Registered
Sharad Patel, an undergraduate student pursuing a degree in Graphic Design, is passionate about photography. After spending his childhood growing up in Mumbai, India, he moved to New York, USA during the summer of 2007. Even though always had a keen interest in photography, it was only after his friends introduced him to Flickr, that his interest escalated. He regularly uploaded pictures he took and received comments from his peers on Flickr. This allowed him to fine tune his vision and motivated him to develop his skills. He hopes that one day, when he is a successful graphic designer, he continues to capture the moments which make life special through photography.

    This image at first sight seems ominous and seems to be of extra terrestrial origins but a closer look shows that this picture consist of snow, wind and machines built by us. This picture makes a person want to look into it for a few moments longer and take in all aspects of the picture. truly amazing!!!
