We Are So Young by otherjoseph We Are So Young by otherjoseph
As this deviation loads, you see the dolphin balloon, but the child you expect to be holding it- isn't there.

We associate things with concepts, and concepts with things, but sometimes, we're pleasantly wrong; this is one of those instances.

Who is young, anyway?

Full-view and enjoy!

We Are So Young by ~otherjoseph is a photo filled with incongruous harmony. ( Suggested by equivoque and Featured by hesitation )

Oh wonderful goodness... I remember those dolphin balloons. X'D

The setting is warm and the patterns, inner meanings are eye catching. Bravo, Mr. otherJoseph!!

I didn't know you had a DD already--It wouldn't be surprising though! You deserve it! :D

Anyway, I love the concept and the softness of the colours! You rule!

I love it! The concept, the angle, colour. Very cute. I would prefer the picture not split, and it would be better cropped in on the sides...that arm and the other thing on the left side are a bit distracting. Anyway great work !!!

Really nice concept. I agree with you completely about the assumptions about the words "young" and "old". When you think "bullying" or "clique" or "popular" you automatically think of children or teenagers. But I worked for a summer at an seniors' community centre and I saw things that would surprise a lot of people. You could definitely tell who was excluded and who the ring leaders were. I guess old habits die hard.

it would be good to get that warmth feeling into film, like in your happy meal and leng smiles, etc.. i saw it used in one, but it was foreign made..

very good effect..

I find this composition nice as there is a contrast between the sharped colours and the grey of her jacket.
She looks sad, though. The shot could have been more surprising if she was smiling but it's an interesting concept, anyway :)

Yeah. :)
It's a spontaneous shot though. I'll try yelling "HAI GIRL PLZ SMILE" when I see her again. :D
