Secret

Debbies quotation inspired image photo challenge

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know. “                Diane Arbus

I was in a quandary of which photo should I use. I quite like taking photos that aren’t quite right or in focus just to see the resulting image. The photo Debbie used set me on this path so for this post, I am using multiple images as I cannot decide on which one fits the best.

This was my first idea

But when I was looking for the above image I found this taken on the same day191009_blog_challenge_quote_photo_tells_light_sun
Which made me think of some other images like this one170615_blog challenge_focus_leaf shadows
and this one180614_blog challenge_light_water drops

Perhaps I should have stopped at one as the photo challenge is quotation inspired IMAGE

What do you think? Should I have stopped at one? What is your interpretation of the images?

In the sky

Debbie from Travel With Intent quotation inspired image: Looking Upward

  “I try to avoid looking forward or backward, and try to keep looking upward.”
Charlotte Bronte

Up there
in the sky
Can you see?
So high
soaring on
invisible currents

Majestic
almost gone
glad you saw
Wings spread
so happy
you looked upwards.

Language

VJ’s Weekly Challenge # 56: Language

“We need language to tell us who we are, how we feel, what we’re capable of – to explain the pains and glory of our existence.”      – Maya Angelou

He talked
to me
I knew at once
although
our language
was different
I gave him
what he wanted
he thanked me
He talked
to me
again
I understood
such a different
language
Many times I
gave him
what he wanted
this pleased
him
I tired though
he asked again
I couldn’t
the language
unspoken
it was in
his eyes
Would you?
