the Mansion and the Street
There are two types of history: The History of the Mansion and the History of the Street.
The History of the Mansion keeps track of life time milestones. It records important events for mankind such as wars, natural disasters, elections, economical crisis, death of the legendary artists, olympic games etc. This history is well preserved in libraries and books. It is institutionalized and branched, and it is taught in schools.
The History of the Street, on theother hand keeps track of everyday life. It records the happenings and the sufferings of an average citizen. Events such as concerts, rioting messages against goverments, riddles, poems; all can be found on the streets. This history fades away with human ignorance. There are no books, no libraries for this history; just walls and under-financed papers. It is not institutionalized and it is only learned on streets by careful observation.
The History of the Mansion and the History of the Street is more like the Yin-Yang. They contradict and also they complete each other. If the human history is the History of the Mansion then the humanitarian history is the History of the Steet; and to me, the subjective reality can only be found in one's commentary of careful examination of both histories.

If you are taking photos, when walking in streets, always keep in mind looking back. If you can't see anything attractive on your back then there is always another perspective; sometimes you can find the pearl even under your feet.
