On Photos

Day seven of the thirty post challenge bids me to share “a photo that makes you happy.”

What’s that supposed to mean? I mean, I know what happy means. Well… let’s just make sure, shall we?

Happiness is a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy. A variety of philosophical, religious, psychological and biological approaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources. — Wikipedia

Hmm, tall order, especially since the way that the challenge is phrased means that the photo itself must make me happy. It does not say to share “a photo of something that makes you happy.” Therefore, I can not simply post a picture of a huge pile of chocolate and call it a day.

Well, it just so happens that I recently took a photo that I am happy with. It’s a photo of a light fixture. The light fixture does not make me happy. I’d say I’m rather indifferent toward it. However, I’m happy with the resulting photo, especially since it was taken with a rather unimpressive phone camera.
