J is for the joy of being human

Joy is defined as a feeling of great pleasure and happiness. People find happiness in one another.  I see human faces as a very likely place to find beauty. When I’m feeling sad, I feel much better if I see someone’s smile. So, today, I found an online editor, and I made these collages of humans in different places, all looking as if they are full of joy.


nearly all pictures were taken in grand island

these pictures were taken in: grand island; cleveland; alexandria, virginia; iowa, and rural illinois.

  1. This is a lovely idea – and, as Lady in Read said, lots of stories accompany these pictures, from your various walks and actions.

  2. They say, as long as you live keep smiling because it brightens everybody's day. It's always wonderful to see happy smiles. Thanks for spreading some cheer at my end too, Alice. 🙂

  3. I love the beauty of others and the joy that is felt by the photos you captured. We can get joy in so many ways so easily! From others, by seeing it and connecting to it, we get inspired and raised by it. Fun! Feeling it! Thank you.
