I know we are all looking at the same picture, but I look differently. They see the absolutely astonishing way the camera froze an image of you in time. In one click, time stood absolutely still and the whole world has to come to a complete halt to admire your beauty. The magnificent authority exercised in forcing life to come to a complete stand is still mind-blowing to me. Guess who was standing and looking flawless? You.


I look at your picture different. I do


This may sound weird but I really do look at your picture different. As much as it may be a still photograph, I swear it moves the more I stare at it. This may trip you out but the picture that I look at, If I look long enough, it talks to me and I can really hear your voice. Your smile tells me how good you feel today. Your eyes tell me how you really feel about me. Of course, I know you’ll say I’m imagining things but it’s my picture so please allow me to have my moment.


I look at your picture different. Really, I do


I’m in love with the person in the photo. Because you are smiling, guess what? I’m smiling. It’s like your eyes are looking straight through me and I become vulnerable and open to you. I love it when you smile. Your joy transfers from that picture straight through to my heart. You are a photographer’s dream. Nature celebrates when you take pictures outdoors!! It gets a chance to be in the photo with you. I bet everything in the background of your picture fights for bragging rites just because they made the shot with you. I bet the flowers and sun are on their best behavior when you’re outside. I actually saw the colors in the flowers brighten when you were near.
