Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity

“There is one thing the photograph must contain: the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough – there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph.” (Robert Frank, photographer)

Humanity and knowledge. This crowd on the steps of the promenade, at Riva deli Schiavoni, is a mix of all nationalities, people of every culture, every shape, color, and size, satisfying the strong human desire to see new places and learn new things. In Venice, Italy. _DSC1410

Humanity and Sports. Nothing brings humans together like the love of sports. On these occasions, the world becomes small, nations forget their grievances, and humanity is at peace for a set period of time. At the 2014 World Cup, Brazil._DSC0470
