Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #131-Emotions

This week, Patti gives us an opportunity to focus on emotions, “Your choice of subject can influence how your viewers react to it.”, so true.

“If you want to be happy, be.”  –Leo Tolstoy

The image below was taken in Madrid.

On our last day in Spain. Our tour guide arranged five horse carriages for us; it was a nice surprise. We hopped on the carriage taking a last city tour of Sevilla while drinking champagne. A perfect way to end our Spain travel.

“We know that they (Whales) sing, sending musical waves through the deep as they travel in complex family units. We know that they appear stricken with grief when one of them dies. And now we know that the great whales of the world are capable of loving.”  — Renee Knight

Art is not emotion. Art is the medium in which emotion is expressed.

— Nadia Boulanger

Jean-François Millet (1814–75) is known for its movement toward realism and away from the romantic, highly emotional style prevalent in the mid-19th century. Yet, his paintings of peasant everyday life often make viewers cry; his famous “the Angelus” is one of these.

Bringing home the calf born in the fields, c. 1860 by Jean-François Millet:

Patti invites us to share “portraits or street photography that captures people’s feelings, such as happiness, anger, sadness, curiosity, or fear. Or, choose a subject or scene that evokes an emotion in the viewer.” Her beautiful photos tell stories of emotions. Click here to visit. In your post, include a link to Patti’s original post and use the Lens-Artists tag so that everyone can find your post in the WP Reader. We are looking forward to seeing your interpretation.

Many thanks to Anne Sandler for her “It’s a Small World” challenge. She not only showed   her remarkable macro images, but also taught us the techniques of taking macro and close-up photos.

Ann-Christine will host LAPC #132 next Saturday, January 23rd.
