Contrast

When I am depressed, hurting, or in pain, I often want to just fly away. I look out the window and dream of flapping my wings and going to another place, literally and figuratively. This photo is dark, but can be light and hopeful depending how you look at it. Sometimes it is both to me at the same time. Photo taken with a Holga camera in NYC.

    Today I see the “light” in this picture… it is beautiful as it depicts both sides.

    I love this photo for so many reasons. I can see the “lightness” and “darkness” of it. It really easy beautiful. It’s all about the eye of the beholder.

      CORRECTION: “It really IS beautiful”. I don’t know what was going on up there.
