Getty Images has invited me to join their new program Moment, where they ask photographers to submit photos for certain themes via smartphones. I submitted the above shot and some others for the theme “Visualize Choice.” It’s fitting, because I spent quite a bit of time trying to decide which planter to buy for a camellia. These definitely caught my eye, but I ended up buying something with a softer hue.
A book I just finished made me think about a different kind of choice. Wonder, by R.J. Palacio, is about a young boy with severe facial abnormalities and it is heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. One of the main themes is kindness, and this quote really spoke to me:
“When given the choice between being right or being kind, choose kind.” ~ Dr Wayne W. Dyer
If only more people would choose kind.
Hope your week’s going well so far. Was anyone else surprised at the blowout that was the Super Bowl? Yikes.
