WPC – Smile

8 Comments

This week, show us a smile (yours or someone else’s), make us smile, or both. Share a photo of something that has brought a moment of joy into your life recently, or focus on the outcome of that joy. If you’re not feeling particularly cheerful at the moment — it’s still 2018, after all — no need to fake your way into the challenge, either. Smiles come in all shades and flavors, including the half-hearted, tired, bitter, and resigned (to name a few). So whether the emotions you channel in your photo are full of cheer or not, I can’t wait to see your take on this theme.

This week with all that is going on in the world and so many people feeling there is nothing to be happy about it seems appropriate to share some photos of happy times over the last few years and how we help the little ones find their smiles and how they bring out our smiles as well. I’ve also added some other photos that make me smile. Hope you find your smile while viewing the photos.

Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody’s heart. ~ Anthony J. D’Angelo ~

Isn’t that the truth. I would like to think that in our family we have smiled enough to show our children that there may be rough spots on the road along the way but you can always smile, be a little silly, and enjoy life.

We only get one life – at least this life – so why not smile more, laugh more, and just enjoy every moment. Be aware of the energy you share with others. Just as a smile will spread, the same is true for a frown so turn that frown upside down and share some loving energy with all you come into contact with. When someone smiles at you doesn’t that bring out a smile for you as well. Smile at everyone you meet because you never know what is going on in their life and your smile may brighten their day.

Dare, dream, dance, smile, and sing loudly! And have faith that love is an unstoppable force! ~ Suzanne Brockton ~

Love and Light!

  1. A wonderful copulation of smiles and joyful moments. How do display you camera/photo detail with each picture? I am intrigued!

    • Robert thank you for visiting. I am an amateur photographer so I don’t really plan out too much. If I see a moment I just snap. I love photographing reflections, silly moments, nature and children. There is a little editing using Apple photo edits so not too much – straightening, lightening, cropping. Plus I may take ten or more photos at one time. My grandson discovering himself in the window was one of my favorite moments. We were at my son’s art gallery opening and the baby was enjoying himself in the window while everyone else viewed the paintings. He was in his own little world discovering himself. Love carrying my camera wherever I go without allowing it to take over special moments. It makes it easier to bring the emotional side of the moment into the photo. Not a fan of the captive audience although many of these photos were semi-posed (they were having fun and I said smile) – someone else took the photos where I am included. Sometimes I use the auto with the movement setting – several clicks within seconds and your guaranteed to capture special moments as with my grandson bouncing down the slide. This was his first experience and his joy/expressions were priceless. Just have fun is the main thing:) Love and Light!!
