Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

January 15, 2013

Illumination of the Heart I named this photo. It is a poetic photograph that came to life partly intentionally and partly by chance.

Image of the illuminated heart

One deep dark night I was playful with my camera— photographing the colorful lights of our little Christmas tree, and this heart appeared among other whimsical images. It was a joy to see, like an unexpected gift!

Illumination of the Heart. What is the meaning of it? It is a metaphor, of course, and for me symbolizes a need to pay attention to feelings—ours and others’. It means to walk toward and embrace another human rather than be absorbed with statistics of social networking or marketing. It means to pay more attention to our humanity.
