things that define us


this is the second image that I selected from the Solo Photo Book Month, that is still available for everyone to see and comment at http://www.sofobomo.org/2009/books/skinnydipping/AfterSun/

still, this time, I've chosen another processing, because my soul is duo toned this morning. beside that, my thought for this moment sounds like this..

“We must not allow other people's limited perceptions to define us”
Virginia Satir [american psychologist. 1916-1988]

Kindness and gentleness define them both. How sweet are their eyes and this hand on donkey's face... Very senstive and moving portrait.

Interesting jewelry on the animal and a pleasant expression on the old man. You can tell he takes very good care of the animal. Such a warm and appealing photo.

Of course I love this sepia treatment and the focus on the donky forehead ! It's superb, my dear, and full of soul*

I really love this shot and the philosophical backing it carries. I also like the unusual framing of the shot.
