This week’s photo challenge is “frame: to use your surroundings to capture a different point of view.”
As conscious beings, we humans still seem to lack a lot of self-awareness in favor of self-deception. Self-preservation, perhaps.
Modern social media enables us to manipulate and mold whatever self we want to see and share with the world. Our virtual lives can be rooted in reality, but framed in pixels of falsehoods.
That being said, I’ve shared a darker self-image that captures a different point of view that varies vastly from my usual smiling, chipper, self — a side few ever see, let alone know.
Who’s to say which is more me, though? After-all, even the shiniest and most valuable coin has two sides — unable to ever see its opposite face… only given brief glimpses, at best, of but a reflection of its other half.
As far as what the world sees, that’s purely a circumstantial game of odds anyway.
