Human Experience Is A Powerful Thing

Standard

Hi Babes!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!! I actually have tomorrow off so it’s sort of like a real Friday for me — wahoo!
Anyway, I just wanted to share some beautiful pictures with you lovely people (no I did not take them). The title of the article is “The 60 Most Powerful Photos Ever Taken That Perfectly Capture The Human Experience”, and I think Ms. McCann did a great job compiling all of these.

I’m posting the first few pictures below, but please click here to see the rest of the article — I highly recommend it!

About azuremarie

Bonjour, I'm Azure; a healthy dose of eccentricity best taken with a grain of salt. Most people describe me as sassy, and I like that. I love words, and think that anyone who can twist them in their mouth and make something beautiful come out is sexy and someone with whom I want to spend my time. I read a lot (bordering on too much), and am baller at boggle. I happen to be addicted to concerts/live music, and will listen to anything that can carry a beat, and even those that don't. I believe that being normal is boring, and love bright colors. I have a soft spot for animals, particularly dogs and horses, but I am beginning to be a cat person as well. Sometimes, I will admit that I like some animals better than some people - they're great listeners and don't judge. J'adore voyager. Someday I want to be able to look at a map of the world and say "I have been there, there, and there... and there", and have a memory attached to them all. I've recently begun to work at an organic juice bar, and diet/holistic health is starting to become a main passion of mine. I want to be able to experience our world, as well as help save it. Oh, and unicorns exist.
