Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Humor
noun 1. the quality of being amusing or comic.
What makes something humorous or funny? And how would you represent that in a photograph? Is it the unexpectedness of it, the surprise? I think that’s what makes the juxtaposition of objects in an image comical. There’s also the imagining of behavior between subjects in an image.
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
― Albert Einstein
“As soon as you have made a thought, laugh at it.”
― Lao Tzu
“Lord, what fools these mortals be!”
― William Shakespeare
“You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.”
Our guest host for this week’s challenge is John RH. Please visit HIS POST to help yourself to some humor and to join in the fun.

“Earth teach me stillness, as the grasses are stilled with light…
Earth teach me suffering, as old stones suffer with memory…
Earth teach me caring, as parents who secure their young…
Earth teach me courage, as the tree which stands all alone…
Earth teach me limitation, as the ant which crawls on the ground..
Earth teach me freedom, as the eagle which soars in the sky…
Earth teach me resignation, as the leaves which die in the fall…
Earth teach me regeneration, as the seed which rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself, as melted snow forgets its life…
Earth teach me to remember kindness, as dry fields weep with rain.”
from the Ute people of North America, in “Singing the Living Tradition”
