wanted: people with personality

Nikon D80 | 1/30 seconds | f 5.3 | ISO 160 | 66 mm
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will never understand why there are people that don't understand diversity, that don't love ethnicity, or who don't understand their age or their limits. I guess I don't understand peoples that think in frames all the time, and, even more, I don't understand people that don't understand that the only one who can judge me is God.

"For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace."

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

p.s. the people that don't understand me are not welcomed here.

I like this kid. Looks like his about to spit something out at you, haha, but not in a playful way.

I like the words you posted just as much.

cred ca a venit momentul sa iti scriu in romana, asta pentru ca am observat ca majoritatea vizitatorilor tai sunt straini si astfel mesajul meu e mai personal.
imi place foarte mult blogul tau. rezonez cu cele scrise de tine in totalitate. nu pot decat sa te admir si sa te felicit pentru modul direct si periculos de sincer in care te exteriorizezi.
tot ce lipseste este sa postezi mai des...
mult succes in continuare aesh

love the way you processed this shot, with tender colors, and I could not agree more with your statements.

@Tudor: multumesc. multumesc mult. si in acelasi registru trebuie sa marturisesc si eu ca nu e usor sa fii asa. mi-as dori constanta in indiferenta. macar fata de cei care asta merita. stiu stiu nu suna crestineste. insa nici sa ma port ipocrit nu este prea crestineste, nu? uneori ma simt tare in.. neregula in raportul eu si ceilalti. dar.. c'est la vie
iti multumesc inca o data si te mai astept :)

Lovely shot of this kid. I like his expression a lot.

Very close and personal. We like the cropping and the situation in which you captured the kid (whatever he was doing).

Outstanding picture of the boy.

He certainly looks like he has the personality you're looking for. Very photogenic. Wonderful Scripture you've paired with this image.

Ivar said...

Great portrait, looks like hes about to burst out laughing to me :) Great dirty face with scratches here and there... he has been playing for sure :)

I loved this post. We all should celebrate diversity. It makes us who we are.

Felipe Lorente said...

Really nice shot. You have a good inspiration theme in the film. I am totally agree with you, the children are amazing choosing people, it is difficult to understand sometimes.
