How do you see the world? The time of our lives called childhood is often considered the age of innocence and care-free liveliness. The world is full of many things, both good and bad. The world is also full of many things we need to choose and decide on. It's full of those spectacular moments of wonderfulness and it also includes the tender and bittersweet moments such as meeting death or departure. But challenges are nothing more than opportunities to show the world that you're stronger than the challenge, how do you see it? The world is full of choices, even if the only choice is to see the situation a little better.
and now for a little photo analysis fun...
the photo above speaks volumes, though it might not be so clear what the photographer was trying to tell the audience. What do you think? Let me know! What makes you love stories? What story caption could you add to this photo?
The fact that it's at such a close angle and taken with a macro lens brings the viewer of this photo up close and forces them to see things a little closer than usual. The sparkle in the girl's eye tells you that she's enjoying what she sees, and also that it's in a bright room! What does the diagonal line across the photo (composition line) tell you? What makes you like the human interest ethos aspect of the photo? =)
This is a form of light-writing... using the quality, quantity, contrast, gradients and details of light and composition to tell a story... the story of how I feel and see God's world. What's your story today? =)
