Weekly Photo Challenge: Express Yourself

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Express Yourself.”

I have many different ideas for “express yourself”: flowers laid in memory of 9 April 1989, an artist with his work, an irate taxi driver, my granddaughter Ana expressing her creativity with Lego, a swallow expressing itself in its call, some neighbours launching a fire heart into the air to express their love , a girl unable to express herself like her friends having no smartphone to hand and me expressing myself with these images (my take on the world).

There are many ways to express yourself:

Express your sorrow with flowers:

2. Express yourself through art (I’ve seen lots of other entries depicting arts and crafts like this one Joy)…

3. Express your anger, the red mist, through expressions, hand gestures and bad language:

4. Express yourself creatively:

5. Express yourself in song:

6. Express your love with a dramatic gesture:

Express yourself…you don’t need a smartphone to do it…

social or anti-social media?

No smartphone…no comment

  1. I love the second photo of the real ‘twitter’ … the last one is like watching the ghosts through the screen of the smartphone 🙂 cheers

  2. I love the “No smartphone…no comment”. God, this is so true. Refused a smartphone for many years and often have been in the same situation. Now I’m addicted… :/

  3. Great post! Love the images and your broad interpretation of expressing oneself. Thank you for linking to “joy” and especially love the singing swallow, conveyance of the driver’s response without actually showing it and the flowers.
