It’s been a minute since I last posted because of my busy schedule; I’m back at it again today with some amazing photos to share. I’ve always had a thing for photos whether they were taken by me or by others. I made a similar post ‘Breathtaking photos telling stories of people all over the world’. I’ve always loved this twitter handle @storiesofpeople so today I have more amazing photos to share with you. None of the photos are mine. They were all gotten from People of Earth (@stories of people).

Analyzing these Amazing photos
All over the world, people take photos to share on their various social media platforms or to keep as a memory. Regardless of whatever reason the photo was taken, it usually has a significance associated with it and these amazing photos above does more by keeping the beautiful smiles on your face because they are truly awe-inspiring.
Photos have and will always be an important part of our human existence. It’s always an amazing look on our faces when we see a photo that was taken in the 60’s or 70’s and so on. It brings an imagination of how life must have been in the past.
Going from the first to the last photo, there’s just so much joy and happiness. But my favorite photo is the ‘94 years old grandpa meeting 2 months old grandson’. This photo shows the extremes of life. One life just starting and the other almost coming to an end. It reminds me of this photo I saw which perfectly describes the cycle of life.
The cycle of Life has always been a mystery to me. It amazes me how we are all born into this world and then proceed through several stages in life and finally get old which leads to death unfortunately.
The baby is born into the world, which many consider beautiful, other consider short while other consider difficult and filled with hardship. The baby is born a unique individual; not knowing what awaits him or her in life but will learn as life goes on.
Take a moment to appreciate these beautiful photos and I hope they bring you joy like they brought to me.
Until next time
