lens-artist photo challenge: communication

Nonverbal communication: It is suggested that 50 to 75% of all communication is transmission through our eye contact, facial expressions, gestures, posture and the distance between people. We also understand messages through variations of body language, distance and physical environments.  

In the mountain depths,
Treading through the crimson leaves,
The wandering stag calls.
When I hear the lonely cry,
Sad–how sad!–the autumn is

~Sarumaru (cited: Ogura Hyakunin Isshu)

did others sit here too
waiting for spring?

blooming plum–
the voices of children
sound reverent

A haiku…is a way in which the cold winter rain, the swallows of evening, even the very day in its hotness, and the length of the night, become truly alive, share in our humanity, speak their own silent and expressive language. (cited: Haiku: Eastern Culture)

Symbols are objects that conveys agreed upon messages within a particular group of people.

  1. Your use of prose to go with your images always amazes me Brenda. As always these are perfectly matched and are wonderful examples for the challenge.

  2. Brenda Human this is an amazing response to my challenge! Ma Leueen showed me your photos. I was most impressed with the woman in the scarf holding up her fist. I know that means “Resist” in human body language. I also got to hear the song. I agree with the singer I want to go somewhere that the sun is shining and it is warm too but this year we are staying home in the cold due to the vye rus.

    1. Thank you. The song comes out of the ages…and a movie, Midnight Cowboy. Movie not so great…most of it has faded out of memory.
