Monte Carlo, Monaco. I like to see things through, both visually and in action. I also like to see through things, like not getting distracted by insignificant details. At the Casino Monte Carlo through the water fountain I took this image. Somehow in the process, the design was titled ‘Flower Fontain’, a misspelling of the French. For a brief period, I was upset. But as long as you admit to the mistake, just let it pass and leave it be. So I did.
This design makes me think of all the people who have difficulties with spelling and writing and how hard it is to always be corrected and the bad feeling of not being good enough. To a standard. I think of how we are divided and defined by our different qualities. I say: be proud of who you are and don’t be afraid of what others say. Pay more attention to what you tell yourself. Talk, think and act positive. There’s no such thing as an irreversible mistake in life.
