This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge prompt from Frank  is  “Technology”.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. Nice photo, Pranab! It is interesting how new technologies have changed and are still changing human relationships. The virtual world versus the real one. This makes me think again of my friend Mario Savioni’s novelette “Pickles and Tarts”, where the main character, Frank, has a virtual relationship with Nicole, a much younger person. Being Frank an introvert I doubt he would have the courage to communicate with Nicole the way he does with the internet as we gather in chapter 13. I am really enjoying “Pickles and Tarts” with its very short chapters, easy to read. As you may remember, it is a story where 54-year-old Frank has been selected by 19-year-old Nicole through a dating site. Frank looks at Nicole’s photos on the site and is attracted to her beauty. Nicole tells him she has a boyfriend and is not interested in a romantic relationship. She adds: “It’s fun to talk to different people sometimes.” The only apparent thing Frank and Nicole seem to have in common is their interest to write stories. Perhaps they want to meet just to write one together? Now Frank has already started to imagine this story, a story-within-the-main-story. I personally think “Pickles and Tarts” is a lovely story of illusion-delusion, dream-reality, non-conformist with the Capitalist system, reflective on love, sex, drugs, abuse, loneliness and human relationships in today’s world. It is profound and highly intriguing. In chapter 13 Frank says his relationship with Nicole and what he is doing is okay in cyberspace, but I ask myself: What about in the real world behind the screens like the ones you have photographed for this post? Who are the people that hide behind them?
