Weekly Photo Challenge: Twist

*sings* Come on baby, let’s do the twist, take my little hand and go like this. Now that we have broken the ice by singing to Chubby Checker, we can now move on to this week’s photo challenge. The Daily Post wants to know, “What does ‘twist’ means to you?”

Nature is a perfect twist maker. I love hearts and I often tend to find these shapes around nature

Sometimes, your hands and arms don’t cooperate when you’re trying to take a picture, but if you look at the bright side, the results can create a mysterious feeling! The second photo below is a combination of two photos. The background is very much the original and the people were taken from another photo (of the same set of pictures) where two people turned out looking like shadows/ghosts :p.

Masks

We all the ability to hide secrets and express both, physically and emotionally, who we really are. We have 2 masks; one that covers our soul, and the other that covers our physique. Our comfort with locking our feelings and ambitions are reflected on these masks. We’re in control of what we perceive as assumptions of what others may want to find out about us. This prevents us from sharing what they want to know; just us, and the fact we don’t live where the grass the greener.

There are times when we are comfortable sharing what’s behind our masks, but once we find the right person to share it with, it becomes easier to unveil our true self. One must remember, those who who came into your life to bring out the best in you, have already unveiled your mystery, not because they secretly dug out your locked memories, but because you (unaware of it) opened up to them. They stay by your side, because they accept who you are, and because they also wear these masks. Wearing these masks shouldn’t be visible to anyone but you, but what needs to be visible are your experiences behind them. It is easy to filter our approaches and thoughts, but it takes a master to represent ourselves naturally.
