Weekly Theme "Prime Lens" | Relaunch (Announcement), Help, Feedback.


For me, this shot is an demonstration of Newton's Third Law. It was in 1996, I was a mere middle school student. I happened to come across with this law and fell in love with it. Since that time, I have been living my life on this law and school of thought. For this, I would call myself “a piece of mirror”.

The law itself explains, “Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.” Yes, I live my life on this. Smile at me, I will smile. Gimme shit?? There'll be BIGGER SHIT for you.

This is my present for this weekend. Try to live your life on this philosophy. THINK BIG & THE WORLD WILL BE YOURS.

me (on the middle) with 2 of my best friends. it was too sunny that we could see our shadows very clearly. i noticed of NEWTON'S LAW and intentionally created this shot…

      Haha... At the outset,when I looked at the title, I was totally mistaken....After reading your write-up, I agree with u ..haha...
      Newton 1st, 2nd and 3rd laws are talking about forces...and your law is talking about the philosophy of interaction with peoples..interesting co-relation....
      Btw, I have been using newton laws in my job everyday to design for building, civil and geological structures :)

      Good shot...

      As we're being philosphical, however, I think you're rewriting Newton's Third Law in the second paragraph ;-) "let there be an equality" we read, but, ... in the case of relationships between people, even that is not good enough... Now, who was it that said if we follow the principle of "an eye for an eye" the whole world would be blind?

      A gift from me: Never react. [b]Respond [/b]with respect and care.
      Only then is Newton's Third Law going to be truly useful.
