a part of me
she is a part of who i am
i never knew existed
but can’t live without
and kids movies until 2am
she is a different world
but the same DNA
she is enough me
to turn a we
into an us
into a forever
like a fairytale story
a disney movie
she is so much more than
so much greater than
so much smarter than
…so that I am better with her in my life
i am greater than
we are a sum greater than the parts
we might be the best friends of all time

“I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains„ deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as is our laughter. To share our sadness with one we love is perhaps as great a joy as we can know - unless it be to share our laughter. We searchers are ambitious only for life itself, for everything beautiful it can provide.”

5.© Drew Makepeace. Wall Face. I don’t actively look for faces; they pop out at me when I least expect it. Its like the faces are finding me rather than the other way around.

They caught my eye while I was resting in bed with my head tilted sideways. I stared at the screws and began to see the face of a rasta man with braided hair. And no, I did not set this shot up.

Found Faces is one of those light-hearted photobooks that compiles photos taken by fun-loving photographers from all over the world. It’s a celebration of the artist in all of us — and it’s sure to make you smile. The focus of this book is the art of finding “faces” in unexpected places — and the combined result is a riot of quirky points of view.
It includes the work of over 90 photographers from 26 different countries, along with their often-humorous reflections on their particular discoveries.
This would be an ideal book to share with a beginning photographer — dozens of examples demonstrating simple ways to “see” differently in the world that’s all around us.
