Curiosity by DanielZrno Curiosity by DanielZrno

Continuing with the Japan photos, even though this one may not be so much about Japan as about one of our traits that has brought us where we are today (for better or for worse :))

As children, we have no fear.
We play with fire, we get burned, we learn, we become better.
As we get older, we accumulate fears, some rational, some not. We also lock our minds in an illusion of knowledge, subduing our curiosity and dwelling in the secure.
Why? What is life worth if it is lived in fear? Fear makes us not live the moments our hearts would love to live.
Fight your fears, and live free, as you did when you were a child :)


Taken in Nara, Japan
March, 2010.

A wonderful moment you froze and showed to us. Great framing linking the actors and puting them rolling a play, without any distraction, only them. The simplicity, the purity, the innocence.

jlzxfkhadskghskfhg this is so cute it hurts. It also brings up this fierce nostalgia - I know almost exactly where this was taken. It didn't trample her after this, did it? I know how damn aggressive those deer can be.

Wow, that's a great comment to get :)

So what happened with you and those deers?
(they were rather tame this day, no trampling occurred)

Ha, I learned from other people - a friend of mine got piledriven into the next prefecture for having a dusting of crums on the edge of her dress.

Ouch... worst I got was a few years back when I was there in the summer (so the deer had their antlers). This one hit my camera:

Oh, crap! D: That's a great shot, though - I was there during summer, too. Maybe not the best time to go shrine hopping in Nara.

A few years ago. I haven't been able to go since, but I go for all of next year, so...give a little get a little, I suppose.

I saw one guy that got one to walk on its hind legs for a cookie.
