We do lose our sense of innocence and wonder at some point. It is hard to bring it back, but not impossible. Going for a walk and just walking, seeing the world through new eyes is a way to explore and recapture that innocence.
At what age did we lose the ability to be exuberant without the fear of what others would think of us? When did we stop being wonderfully expressive in our joy without a care in the world? We’ve become adults who have lost or repressed the ability to feel and express our emotions purely, freely and openly. I love seeing little children show their sweet joy without a care in the world. It’s pure and beautiful. My intent was to take a picture of the little guy sitting on the rabbit but just as I pressed the button I captured a different moment in time; a little boy thrilled about getting ready to go for a ride on the carousel.
