your thoughts

i am fascinated by the way an image can affect our emotions. how our brain must continually make sense of everything we see...find some sort of pattern or repetition in an image (subconsciously or not.) when i see an image i always attempt to formulate some sort of story to explain it. let me know (oh you who maybepossibly read this) what emotions one or more of these images below provoke. what sort of story might lie behind them and give them purpose. or whether you see any purpose at all in them. obviously, the photographers and artists already have stories and meanings for them all, but i want to see what you come up with. at least how that particular image affects your emotions.
i would like to know what you think.

  1. Imma comment on some of them. :D.
    #2 makes me feel stressed remembering all the stuff I have to do.
    #4 I really like the colors. I don't know how it makes me feel though haha.
    #5 makes me think of cleanliness.
    #6 is happy :D.
    #7 is my favourite. It makes me nostalgic thinking about when I was little (like six-eight) and England. It's a happy assortment.
    #10 is scary. It reminds me of Katsushika Hokusai's wave painting. :D
