17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images

In my foolishness, I have let myself despair, By empty thoughts. In my despair, I have let myself fooled, By empty words. I created this image to show the heaviness of the words that too often we hold on, never realizing how much struggle will bring to ourselves, and the burden that will bring in one’s life. I wanted to emphasis the emotional impact which words can have on us and our life the impact that has on us and on our life. Often, we are so naïve and yearn to hear comforting words, but not realizing they will paralyze us, and drag us down.
