Tied Up in Sorrow

Velkommen to Saturday Scavenger Shots, with me, laura b!  This week's word was chosen by my blog sistah, Tara @ Eclectic Spaghetti.  The word she chose?  EMOTION.  This is so wide open.  Certainly for most photos that I've ever taken, I can still look at them and feel a combination of the EMOTIONs I felt at the time, taking the picture, along with the EMOTIONs  I feel now, looking at the picture from some distance.  I wasn't sure what to show you here.  Finally, I decided to go with this picture from about a year and a half ago.
When I look at this picture I think back and can see that DR looks happy.  I know I felt happy.  My EMOTION when I saw this picture (of which come to think of it, I was not actually the photographer!) was quite purely happiness and a feeling of safety. 

Now when I look a it my EMOTIONs are more complicated.  It still makes me happy to see DR in that time and place...but I also feel other things, such as confusion and pain.  Lots of EMOTION here, for sure. 

Wow, well.  Hope that wasn't too EMOTIONal for you guys.  I am sometimes fully at the mercy of EMOTION and it isn't necessarily a pretty thing. 

Tara has tagged our buddy, 3GirlKnight to choose the next word.  Looking forward, as always, to seeing...What.  Comes.  Next.

Oo, great example. Relationships whip up a plethora of emotions. Not always happy, not always sad, but yes definitely confusion and pain and sometimes mental exhaustion.

Well, it puts that old song in my head.

Tara: Oh my goodness, yes. Sometimes exhaustion trumps all the other emotions.

Dmarks: Bee Gees forever!!!

Bittersweet now, it sounds like.

What a sweet pic. I hope in a few months it can bring back the old emotions and wipe away all the pain and confusion and abandonment issues we all have.

Secret: At this point in time, definitely bittersweet.

Churlita: I love the picture and most of the feelings that go with it. Thank you...I am hoping the exact same thing.
