I'm part of Post A Day 2013
P.S.:
If discussing photography, it is not enough, to put the focus on technical sophistication. Much more important: the message, maybe subtle, maybe clear. For example my 6 pictures are all the same if you analyze, if there was planned to use the trick of an optical focus. But the 6 messages are so different!!!
1 – message maybe: what makes a person beautiful?
2 – how would have been YOUR reaction to 9/11, if you would have been the president?
3 – when you met your partner for the first time: there was happiness. How do you act, to keep that state of mind alive?
4 – do you know a good procedure to get out of depression?
5 – when humor comes into your mind?
6 – are smells, odors a part of your life? when?
…maybe more and more of us are interested, to discuss the MESSAGES of pictures…

  6. question #2 is a good one..on reflecting, i would first do all i could to find out how and why this happened and who was responsible. and i would want to hug every single mourning family member that lost someone in that tragedy, look them in their eyes and weep with them…

    i am not good presidential material!
