As in, as long as I keep looking at this photo, my atmosphere is as the photo "feels".
Certain photos can awaken the peace in me. Music can do this too.
Once I've seen this photo, or listened to this song, or experienced both together my world becomes calm and peaceful (and for some reason I think about the colors white and creme a lot).
I just feel happy and content.
Here are a few of those photos.
Sigur Ros, of course. Well, or Jonsi.
These types of photos make me want to do things like:
go on a walk and just marvel at whatever is around me
clean my room
close my eyes and feel a breeze
get rid of most of my clothes and replace them with well made items that I will wear forever
eat an apple
arrange a bunch of peonies
read a book on a blanket in the sunshine
put on lotion that smells divine
pray to and worship the God that created this world (see picture 1)
look out a window at rain
buy the perfect nude lipstick
take my film camera out on an adventure (develop it too)
wear button downs
get a pair of perfect fitting jeans
simplify, simplify, simplify
They always remind me that it's the small things that matter in life.
It's so neat how a single picture can do that.
But they do.
At least for me they do.
