The Faberge Egg Kid by gilad The Faberge Egg Kid by gilad

Born to a world of money
You never see the world as it really is
The taste of a candy is trivial
Playing with your video game again

Going to the best schools
Dressing with the coolest brands
Vacations all over the world
The world is yours for the take

The road is long, you know
You will see the world later on in life
You will meet the other side of life
And it will shock you little Fabergé Egg Kid

So open your eyes and see through the window
Learn how you can make a change
The world will smile at you if you share your joy
You know where you are now
But you never know what is down the road


****

Taken in "Tel Hasomer", Israel.
I used my new Canon 15mm F2.8 fisheye.
I missed having such a wide angle.

BTW
Congratulations are in order. My second kid was just born (23/6) and his name is Nadav. You will probably see picture down the road. Maybe that got me thinking of writing that poem.. who knows :)

congratulations on your new baby boy!!! i really hope you take the yearly pictures of him like you did with Yotam! not to downplay your artistic work, which i absolutely love, but the collages of him are definitely among my favorites!

also, i love the movement in this picture, and the contrast of colors and the large, almost intimidating architecture with the small child, absolutely brilliant.
