In this week’s photo challenge, Ben Huberman asks “to share a photo, a gallery, or a mesh of what being connected means to you. You may choose to focus on one of the verb’s meanings or on several, and you can go literal or figurative, abstract or explicit: whatever you see fit.”
I chose a few images of Nature and People, because I feel deeply connected to what they mean to me.
I am sure you all have heard or seen images of refugees fleeing to Europe. This is the biggest refugees crisis since World War II. There are people protesting though, whilst others are helping them. Never in my life I needed to think of the meaning of humanity and connection as in the last days.
We must look at people as human beings and stop classifying them based on gender, color, religion, and nationality. We are just the human race, among all planets, stars, galaxies, the contents of intergalactic space, the smallest subatomic particles, and all matter and energy of the Universe.

Portraits is the single most important reason why I love photography. Meeting not other people’s eyes but connecting with the genuine expression of their emotions, thoughts, stories… and making those moments, eternal.
