about this story

•First picture, a man sitting in front of wall art
This photo is connected to Socrates’ philosophy which is his definition of art as an imitation. He declares that it is very easy to get perfect imitations— through mirror. In the picture, there is a mural with excellent design. The drawings in the mural are from the things in real life such as mountains. This can be reflected to Socrates’ statement about art as an imitation. The drawings in the mural are imitations of the scenery from real life. Even the statements on the mural are about the things that are found in real life.

•The second photo,wide view of grassland
In this photo, a wide view of the scenery of grassland with blue sky can be seen. This can represent Socrates’ statement which is “I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think.” Socrates’ statement challenged people to think for themselves and not conform to the beliefs of others. This can be reflected in the photo as the wide view of the scenery can represent the perspective of someone. They need to broaden their view of the world in order to have a deeper understanding about life.

•Third photo, cemetery
Because most of us are saddened when we see a grave, we tend to remember the key people in our lives who have passed away, Socrates' philosophy "Death may be the greatest of all human blessings" is linked to the image of a cemetery. Also, seeing cemeteries makes us sad since we have no idea where we will go after we die. But Socrates sees death as a blessing in disguise because the essential part of an individual's identity or consciousness continues to exist hereafter, which to him conceptually is not of a person who values their life in terms of living physically like anyone else here today.

•Fourth photo, wide view of flowers
Socrates' philosophy "Give me beauty in the inward soul; may the outward and the inward man be at one" is associated to the image of flowers because, like the flowers, we must devote time to ourselves. On the inside, happiness begins. If we're unhappy with how we feel about ourselves, it will show on the outside. We, like flowers, must bloom in order for positivity to spread. We must cultivate a loving attitude toward ourselves, never forgetting how powerful we are, and reminding ourselves that we matter.

•Fifth photo, the dog hold by its owner
"Life without experience and sufferings is not a life" a philosophy by plato is connected with the picture of dog controlled or hold by its owner. Just like the philosophy of socrates, a dog cannot live without experience or sufferrings given by his owner or the people around them. Dogs depend on people, so its either experience or suffering to be given to them. As well as to people, we cannot called our lives "life" if we are not taking experience and sufferings, we must able to take or experience sufferings and challenges in order for us to have a valuable life.
