Yeah, every day, almost everyone runs to fulfilling their daily routines. Public transport is one of the most widely used types of transportation. Yeah, it could be a bus or a train or an airplane.
In public transportation, we can see people with different thoughts and aspirations often. Some are looking outside with hopeless eyes. Some are looking at books, and some are using their mobiles. So, everybody is alone in their world. Among these, some people think differently in a fantastic way.
Dina Alfasi is such a person. Let us look at Dina’s story.
Dina Alfasi is a mother who works in a hospital as an Israeli engineer. Like everyone else, she used public transportation, and on this journey, she saw people trapped in their world. She had a pretty good habit; that is, she just looked at anything with a beautiful vision.

“I work as a practical architectural engineer in northern Israel. So I use public transport to get from my home to my place of work. During this time, I started taking photos of other passengers using my iPhone.” That was the answer she gave when asked how she referred to photography.
“I try to take photos in a way that highlights emotional expression. So I stop for a moment and pay close attention to the passengers. Then wonder what their story might be through that. And according to that thought, I try to grasp the complexity of human relationships by capturing photographs. Through the photos I take every day, some unique strangers get lost in their world can capture something extraordinary.”
She had started this as a way to pass the time on public transportation. Eventually, it improved and became an essential part of her life. Moreover, she had felt that she has made a small contribution for writing ideas about life during this time.
