In Praise Of Prometheus
27 Mar 2009
"In Greek mythology, Prometheus is a Titan known for his wily intelligence, who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to mortals for their use. Zeus then punished him for his crime by having him bound to a rock while a great eagle ate his liver every day only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day. His myth has been treated by a number of ancient sources, in which Prometheus is credited with - or blamed for, but credited nonetheless - playing a pivotal role in the early history of humankind."
As all the power sources man was gifted with (the gun powder, the Colt, the Nuclear energy, etc.), the fire can destroy as much as it can help mankind. That's why people must handle it with care, avoiding negligence of any kind. Of course, the photos are beautiful, as I was really happy taking them... but arriving at home and thinking twice about it, I'd be rather pleased if I wouldn't have taken them.
So, praise Prometheus by controlling this power he gave to us !
Thank you !
