Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself
George Bernard Shaw


(En)
First of all, I must say I didn’t google the quotes I was given. I decided to make my own interpretation of each one.
In this particular one, I focused on the “creating yourself” part… putting a mask on, make up, dress up, do a change in life, something like that.
I also pictured a sunset by the sea and someone celebrating the moment, with open arms, rejoicing, hair flying at the wind. For that, I needed a sunny day, which didn’t happen. Clouds hid the sun for days and time was running out.
Lucky of me, there was a Flower Festival going on and a Bonsai Tree Workshop and exposition. That man guiding the branches of the tree, cutting here, putting a string there, with a surgeon’s precision gave me the final idea. He is not creating himself  though he is recreating his vision and knowledge of the world into that tree, teaching it how to grow.

A minha tradução foi “a vida não se trata de nos encontrarmos, a vida é para nos criarmos“.
Não pesquisei nada sobre a citação, limitei-me à minha interpretação pessoal, fixando-me na segunda parte “criar”… colocar uma máscara, maquiar, vestir, mudar qualquer coisa em nós.
Também imaginei alguém a celebrar o por do sol, braços abertos, cabelo a esvoaçar. Para isto, precisava um dia de sol… por uns dias apenas nuvens no céu, o tempo corria depressa.
Felizmente houve uma Festa das Flores com um workshop e exposição sobre Bonsai. Este homem guiando os rebentos da árvore, cortando aqui, colocando um fio ali, com a precisão dum cirurgião foi o mote final para a fotografia. Não está a criar-se, no entanto, recria-se e passa a sua visão e conhecimento do mundo para a árvore, ensina-a a crescer.
