"facing the truth"

Uploaded: January 02, 2007 13:09:56


This flower was taken back in the fall, in the brightest sun I had seen all year. I played with the tones and the lighting until a title came into
my mind. Nikon N65 35mm lens.

Interesting title as the flower is looking into the light. I wonder what the light means...truth or wisdom? #581361

Beverly A. Wright January 02, 2007

You've called it Melissa, it's the
wisdom to know the truth.
I appreciate you understanding the
image, and questioning the meaning.
My heart went into this title, so
I thank you for your wonderful comments! #3773200

Van Gogh painted flowers in the brightest sunlight. He felt that only when the sun was at it's peak did colors and tones reach theirs. Beautiful image and effects. Excellent job Bev. #3783340

Bill Wyatt January 05, 2007

I think this is a spiritual image. The truth being the way. Facing the way. Facing GOD. Facing what your life is or what you have let it become?
I take the sunlight as the truth or the way. Very thought provoking image, Bev! #3783358

Beverly A. Wright January 05, 2007

Thank you so much Bill for your first
comment, I agree with Van Gogh as far
as colors reaching their peak, in the
bright sunlight. I think it's a good
metaphorh for life, when the light is
bright and exposes everything. #3784635

Beverly A. Wright January 05, 2007

You're so right about the spirituality
here. The light simply represents God
who is the truth for me and the way,
and sometimes it feels hard to face the
truth, because you are facing God when
you do. I have come to the conclusion
that I would rather face God with the
truth and allow him to forgive and love
me rather than turn away and hide and
feel nothing. Especially his love!!!!! #3784668
