Old news. Prices are going up, wages are going down and we’re turning into a third world country with a gap between the wealthy and the poor the size of Grand Canyon. No wonder people blew the lid and took to the streets. Amazingly, we always tend to do that in the coldest months of the year. It’s either snowing like crazy or simply cold and windy. I don’t know why, maybe we get bored or most likely winter depression kicks in. I can’t imagine what would happen if the climate ever changed into that of Scandinavia. We’d be jumping over bridges like lemmings over cliffs and probably publicaly cried wolf over our lives once a week.
Yesterday, Slovenia demonstrated on the streets of Ljubljana. Truth be told, living in this country has become inbareable and to make their voice heard, over 70 000 people showed up, many reminiscing about Yugoslavia and Tito.
Now, here are two clear examples of the power of images. Basically, the proof that the image is sometimes far from being objective. And sometimes it can also be misleading.
See, what the drummer is hitting. The Premier. Need I say more? 😉
A misleading photo. Depends on how you interpret it. If you take the saying on the board behind our newly elected president the way youth knows it (a devaluative meaning), then it could be misinterpreted to go with the president. Well, it wouldn’t be misleading if I actually intended to put this message through. But in fact I voted for him, so … probably not, ha? 🙂
