The Internet may be a huge container with weird and hilarious pictures, but also with other less pleasant and less educative contents. The sweetness and ugliness of such a great tool, often without a filter, consists in capturing the truth of things, both in their rawness and in their beauty. So it happens that every time during this train of shots that run through the windows like faces, moving scenes show up that leave you wordless and invite you to reflect for a couple of moments on what truth values of lifetime actually are.
A picture of a homeless man holding a dog in his arms was posted on Instagram, a scene that in equivalent time contains the sadness of misery, but also the tenderness of affection, and thus the light of hope. As is often the case, everyone strives to determine what they need, a touch like Rorschach’s Stain Test and projecting what it really carries within itself.
Among the possible readings, one cannot think that, although it represents a depiction of poverty and what it means to measure on the road, this photograph conveys a key message. The person and his puppy rest peacefully among the eyes of all, giving each other affection and luxury. The stranger isn’t alone, but can believe the unconditional love of a faithful friend, a guardian spirit without wings but with four legs!
