Emotion: DoWnS and uPs

DoWnS and uPs

Lows – deep, dark, lonely
Sweet and sour emotions
Highs – rare, swift, feeble

Here is another photo in my “emotion” series.  (see my posting on anger).  I saw a flower that had both droopy petals and lively petals, and thought I could use it to represent the experience of being on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.  Although, it could also apply to other rollercoaster challenges one is experiencing.  Obviously, I manipulated the photo and added some unnatural blurring to the flower to evoke the feeling I was looking for – instability even when experiencing the “ups.”

    I love what you’ve done with this image. It reminds me of someone casually flicking their hair in the face of life’s difficulties.

      Sooooo sorry about that. I did not post anything named “337”. Others have told me they received notification about this posting error also. Thank you for letting me know, and thank you so much for being interested in my postings!
