Weekly photo challenge: Happy/sad faces

Happy or sad faces?

FacesHere are two smiley faces but are they really happy faces?

Sometimes smiles can be deceiving and if you knew the background to this photo you would wonder how they could smile at all, given the news they had received that day.

The champagne is also a bit of a throw off – are they toasting a happy occasion or sad news?

Faces tell us interesting stories but it’s not always the right story.

Smile and the world smiles with you…

For this week’s photo challenge – Face.  

In a new post, show us a face — and feel free to share the story or the person behind it.

    You’re right Deb, we all put on a bit of a mask sometimes. What you see is not necessarily what you get. Nice post.

    It is almost a lost art to put on a happy face in spite of your troubles and just trudge on.

      Yes you are right Tim. We are trying hard in this photo but I can see the cracks showing. Appreciate your comment.

    There was that old saying – never judge a book by its cover. We all have covers. 🙂

    Hope you and the team are bearing up. Despite the brave faces it can be a long road. Remember what they say about doors closing and others opening. Good thing to remember in my experience – think of the first month as a holiday. Sometimes three or six months break is a good time frame to rethink and re position oneself.

      I know what you mean Louise and we are trying to look ahead at the moment as much as we can. It’s just that it feels like a kick in the guts after over two decades of hard work. I’ll be fine. 🙂
