Pictures of the Week- October 6th, 2014

Sifting through my digital camera memory card I discovered several shots that I thought were worth sharing. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but what about feelings? How do certain shots make you feel? What emotions get stirred up? And how do you react to those emotions? 
These are just simple flower pictures, but if you just try to appreciate the simplicity and beauty, you might find they say more to you than you initially thought. 
So many things can't be put into words, so when you try to express yourself, what do you try to convey? Instead of using the stream of consciousness technique, try something different and think of just one word that each picture makes you feel. Can you find a positive direction to go with those feelings? 
Give it a shot and see what you come up with.

Let's try something very simple. 

What do you feel when you see this picture?


To me, I feel warm, calming peace of mind. As I look at this picture, I can hear the subtle rippling of the water as a gentle breeze flows past my face. The soothing warmth of the sun's rays blanket me in a comforting hug as the soft grass tickles. 

I could sit near that pond for hours if I could. 
When you look at this picture, what do you feel?

The original picture was found here. Thank you Robert Finkelstein.
