MY BEST PHOTO 2012 - 'Fallen'

by Ray King December. 15, 2012 4760 views

After searching through the hordes of photos I took this year, I have decided to repost the very last photo I took. Not because it’s necessarily my best, but because it spoke to me on many levels.

Naked, crouched in a fetal position, in a dark place, abandoned, alone, surrendered. Have you been there? So many people today are at that station in life. And with little effort we can supply enough wind beneath their wings to lift them. And in so doing cause our own spirit to rise.

The joy of living is in the giving… a smile, a warm greeting, a hug, a touch, an ear, an understanding, an interest. No expense involved, yet the dividends are abundant.

Beautiful Choice; excellent wording. The joy of giving is two fold. It makes the giver and the receiver happy, even if only for a moment and that moment can make all the difference.

Technically, this is a perfect photograph, but it's also a poignant image of our times. I'm so grateful that there is still a Light in this world of darkness.
