Black to White

Girl is saying: " That is a bad note"

Joyful, joyful, joyful,
as only dogs know how to be happy
with only the autonomy
of their shameless spirit.

(an excerpt from Poet Pablo Neruda)

The photo is from a series put together by Ziba Karbassi, from Tabriz, Iran..  I think many of the photos are from the Iranian earthquake a few months ago which got little notice.  Since US has banned Iran from any outside aid or comfort, the lowliest suffer as well.
Many more photos can  be seen here.

I love the Black and White depictions.  Color is not necessary ; only the meaning breaks through.  And sometimes only the feelings.  How much of the world lives with so little, and then that is taken away, must break their spirit -- would mine probably .
 Be sad for awhile, so that you can be happy . . .
