Do you look at the world with .....

passion



or 
indifference



i love both these shots 

even though
not perfect

just like love or marriage or friendships

sometimes it helps to unfocus
and
accept imperfection
into 
our lives

I just thought to myself "the next word would be 'indifference'" and I scolled the page down...sometimes I scare myself. I too like both of these photos.

Jennifer Richardson said...

so so true
and so beautifully photographed!
I love that word..."unfocus"
that is rich.
My daughter told me once,
when I was looking over her outfit
"you're LOOKING too hard!"
-pretty smart cookie.
Yes, unfocus and don't look so hard at our beautifully flawed
lovies (including ourselves).
awesome share....thanks.

There is an interesting read -
The Gifts of Imperfection:Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are, author Brene Brown.

I need both these photographs framed side by side with the words as well. Wonderful!

Aren't those heads expressive.

Arija said...

Just the advice I needed to hear today. Life is not always easy, sometimes we need to give a whole lot more than we get.

Barbara Shallue said...

I agree!

Kerri said...

These are Wonderful!! I have to admit sometimes I look at the world in both ways -- hopefully most of the time I look at it with Passion though.
Great captures!

beth said...

accepting imperfection was once hard for me to do....really hard. but then one day, i decided what was really hard was living with the perfection gene and since then i've done everything i can do, to be less perfect in how i live.....

Both photos are beautiful.

Kanelstrand said...

It helps indeed. Sometimes when we are back to back, it doesn't mean we hate each other. Just taking some time off to plunge in the game with renewed strength!
