Weekly Post Challenge: “Symbol”
This week, WordPress has posed a challenge that I take on proactively in the Hammer Home Street Photography Project.
Unborrowed Symbol –– is the name of one of my themes that is inspired by a quote from the philologist and Indiologist Heinrich Zimmer. He said:
“Symbols hold the mind to truth but are not themselves the truth, hence it is delusory to borrow them. Each civilization, every age, must bring forth its own.”
In the project, I pay attention to the objects and places that appear to represent, stand for or suggest an idea, belief, action or material aspect that is typical of the city at large or community within (that’s quite a mouthful).
For this week’s challenge, I post this image.
Symbolically, justice is something that everyone should have but can’t necessarily agree on; therefore, and most unfortunately, not everyone will actually receive it in their lifetimes.
It’s axiomatic, yes but still something I ponder.
