Peter From71,921The NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | APRIL 2014 | READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE ASKING FOR INCLUSIONThe first PAC (March 2014) was a great success and I want to thank everybody who participated in it! Like my old APC Circles, this new April PAC is full of great photographers! I have checked EVERY SINGLE ONE of them and guarantee that your feed will flood from quality images when you add this circle.How To Qualify To Future PAC CirclesIf you're a professional or an amateur photographer mainly sharing your own original work in your feed, then you're eligible to ask for inclusion in the May PAC.The difference between this circle and the old APC is that I now will be giving away FREE accounts to the Pixativity Photographer's Directory every time I share this circle. I will pick three photographer's from the circle and add them to the directory while I compile the circle (you will be notified). (For those of you not remembering the _APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle. The PAC will be of the same high quality!_The GuidelinesYes, there are rules and guidelines. :) If you want to participate in the PAC you need to do the following:1) Plus and comment this post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on the original post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet these guidelines. Tagging friends increases your chances of being added.2) Reshare this post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released. If you do not reshare, I probably won't add you to the circle since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So does your fellow G-plussers.The post must be reshared in your personal feed and publicly.Pages will NOT be accepted into the circle.3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks.I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :)4) Premium Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Still members should reshare this post and  let me know that you did so in the comments.(How to obtain a Premium account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).Please NoteIf I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that. 1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed, 2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc. or 3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this) or 4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.Release DateThe next circle will be released in May. Keep an eye open for the up-coming Announcement Post.Now, let's make this April PAC another success story2014-04-07 16:11:45488213219236CC G+
Gailen Mapes61,862Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  D-F - 4 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-04-04 10:48:191678211CC G+

Gene Bowker66,344The   #Alphabetcircles  Gene's Active Photographers on G+ circle.Part Five: First Name R-Z (the final set)Meet 490 more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between R and Z.Tomorrow is going to be a busy day at work, so I decided to go ahead and shoot this off tonight.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+ (usually within 30 days or so)2. We circle each other (sometimes for a long time)3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notGoogle has recently changed the circle add logic, so you can no longer search a shared circle to determine who is in it and only add people that you don't already share. This makes life harder for all of us.Not in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.I love it when you shareIt does take a lot of time to visit and compile the lists. I enjoy doing it but feel free to re-share the circle with your friends. That way they can find some great new photographers too.  You don't have to reshare to remain in the circle, but it is appreciated.If you follow along you can easily add 2000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images   Here are the others in the seriesPart One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBzPart Two: D-Ghttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/R9GFFEnR1CmPart Three: H-Khttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/Beo3nKCJS6oPart Four: L-Qhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GeneBowker/posts/J2pQM7ZpBoJ (thanks Randy for catching that)Thanks again to everyone in all of the circles.

Peter From70,570Time to share The NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's CircleNow that we have launched the Pixativity Photographer's Directory, it's time to share the BRAND NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle. This, at the same time, means that I have decided to six feet the old APC. ALL old circles are no more and I have trashed them from my circles.It was a delight to put this circle together and I have found lots of great photographers.

Thank you.Circle Sharing Benefits Everyone!Please remember to tag this page with both +Monochrome World and #monochromeworld  in order for me to find your work easily.To be included in this circle you must first circle this page. Hopefully I didn't miss you, but if I didn't include you be sure that you have circled the page first so I can include you in the Contributors Circle of the month.Lastly, a reminder that we have two specific days for unique postings: #otherthanbwwednesday  and #sepiasaturday  Again, thank you, +andi rivarola +Circles Circles Circles +Share Your Circle +Circle Distribution +MY CIRCLES +Shared Circles Magic G+  #circleshared   #sharingiscaring   #circleshare   #circleoftheday   #circle  2014-03-04 04:38:3138312767163CC G+
Monochrome World6,526January 2014 Contributors Circle What an amazing month. The quality of the work shared has been exceptional, at least in my view. You do quality photography and it shows. In terms of contribution numbers it was humongous, and in terms of contributors, we beat all records. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful work. Re-share this circle if you can. It helps YOU and the theme to grow.Please remember to include in your posts, both the page and tag: +Monochrome World  #monochromeworld  This makes it easier to find your post. Also, all those included in this circle added the theme page to their circles. If you don't do that, I can't add you to the Contributors Circle.Note:1- please share your images posted to Public. If you post to communities, only community members can comment.2- So, my recommendation is this: post to Public first, then re-port to your favorite community.3- And, if you post to Extended Circles, your reach is limited and it makes difficult to re-share. So, it's been a rule for a long time: Extended Circles only-posts are not re-shared.Hope this helps clarify some issues. Thank you for your patience, and if I missed you in this circle, please let me know so I can pay more attention to your posts.Curator: +andi rivarola  #circleshare   #sharingcircles  +Circles Circles Circles +Share Your Circle +Circle Distribution +Valued Circle Shares 2014-02-04 03:06:3237613483164CC G+

The Goddess of Spring

“If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for a moment.” ― Georgia O'Keeffe

I am unofficially working on a project for the year that I am not fully prepared to reveal yet, but let's just say that this image is part of it.

Enjoy! ♥

Konohanasakuya-hime | Blossom Princess

“Life: composted lessons for our hearts to blossom into our souls.” ― Soul Dancer

I am a child of Spring, born on the day it officially begins, and I always feel so energetic at this time of year.  I want to be out in the sun and feel the warmth; I want to be moving and creating in so many ways.  That being said, I decided to create a piece for the April Challenge that embodied that aspect of my personality for the PERSONALITY! theme.

In accordance with Easter and all things spring that has sprung in the world, I give you Konohanasakuya-hime, the blossom princess of Japanese lore that symbolizes delicate earthly nature.  She is also an icon for daily life and her symbol is that of the cherry blossom (as seen in my hair); one of my favorite blooms.

So much so, it is seen in a few of my tattoos.

Iwish you ... more »

Persistent Bloom

"As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time." - Denis Waitley

This was created for my photography course in my last term in school.  We were told to create simulated depth of field (DOF) rather than just go with a large f-stop to create depth.

While the latter would have been much easier, I embraced the challenge and simulated the DOF and also enhanced the image to a finished piece.  I never like to leave my work half done.

I hope you enjoy! ♥

Mystified

"I think we're all fascinated and a little mystified by how the brain works. One of the most mysterious of the physical sciences is neurological science." - Alexis Denisof


As part of my Mystique series from last weekend, I decided to give another shot in the series a different look.  I processed this with a combination of LR, PS, and Nik. 

I can see some things I love about using the software, but it also drew me to see some weaknesses in my lighting, but I love the fact that our brains can process and analyze these things and find ways to correct it all in the future!

I hope you enjoy this slightly different offering! ♥

Mystique

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science." - Albert Einstein

For the #SSP  this week, I decided to embrace the undefined and mysterious vibe I have had this week, and present an image that captured, beauty, intrigue, hypnotic eyes, and shiny glitter!

Freaks & Geeks Revisited

I don't think I ever tried to fit in much, nor do I think I really cared.  I was always going to do what I was going to do, and to hell with the status quo.  I can recall when I first bleached my hair white in middle school.  I waited for my mom to go away on a business trip and suckered my dad into getting me the supplies.  When my mom got home, what could she do?  It was already done HA!

It carried on through school, as you can see by my 10th grade photo-op with my friend Jessica.  We were an odd mix of grunge babies, hippies, and candy ravers.  We weren't really defined and that was just how I liked it.

I still like to think I am pretty undefined because that means I can do anything and be anyone without trying to cram myself into some stereotypical box.

So, I encourage you all, on this +Blast From ThePast k... more »

Taking It Down To Chinatown

As my final mash-up from my marathon of mashing, I decided to hit up another classic favorite of mine Chinatown, and since +Isabelle Cardinal mashed me real good last week, I decided to add her amazing smile to this poster!

Oh, I hope my friends, +Mark Rodriguez and +Isabelle Fortin, didn't think they would come out of today victimless, because my clock said something completely different!

Diamonds Are Forever

It seems like a million years ago that I covered Ian Fleming's Octopussy in a tongue-in-cheek parody called Laser Pussy to make light of a surgery I had to remove cancerous cells from my cervix.

Well, +Cristy Sherman has stepped onto the mashing stage as a purply bond babe in my homage-twist to Diamonds Are Forever.

"Larger than Life Personality" in your Self-Portraits

The Beginnings
When I first got my dSRL and started taking photos I quickly realized two things:  1. That I had a lot to learn about my camera (my first 10 photos on Manual turned out completely black), and 2.  although I enjoyed shooting almost anything, I really liked photographing portraits.  So at that time I was faced with a dilemma.  How can you shoot portraits, practice and learn  while having no skills?  The answer was Self-Portraiture. 

That’s how I began shooting self-portraits.  It allowed the perfect conditions to practice my skills; learn the characteristics of my camera; analyze and study light and practice my expressions. Successful portraits take patience and require planning.  When having a model or a subject to shoot, time is of the essential.  Also, proving that you masteryour skills... more »

Welcome To Grind House

I was actually fortunate enough to see this in the theater, in its entirety, as a double feature.  It is still one of those movie experiences that is etched in my brain - pretty iconic, actually.

Another epic person I know is +Measie Elizabeth and that is why I decided to mash her all up into the Planet Terror poster.  Not only is she a sister mod for The Art of Self Portraiture (because her selfy imagery rocks), but she is an amazing artist.

If you have been living under a rock in terror and don't know who she is, I highly recommend you check her out!

I hope you enjoy the mash! ♥

Duality

“Ce qu'on appelle une raison de vivre est en même temps une excellente raison de mourir.” ― Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays

A look at my self and my munchkin.  No greater duality in the world than living for your child and also the lengths you would go to in order to protect your spawn - even to death.  11 years ago, I became a mom and it wasn't one of those, "I am destined to be an amazing mom" kind of things, but I knew it was my duty to make her into the best little human being I could possibly nurture and so far, I think I am doing an okay job.

If there were ever a question about whether she was mine or not, I think it has been settle here lol.

Always Be Prepared To Be The Butt Of Your Own Joke

"Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it." - Bill Cosby

So, for the #macromonday  theme the end , I thought I would draw humor from it since I sometimes like to think like the perpetual child - to be light-hearted and creative. 

I received the cutest little glass sheep, part of an inside joke at work, for my birthday last month, and I move them around my office every couple of days like an Elf on The Shelf.

Over the last few weeks, clearing up the last few projects from my term in school and during the break, I have taken the time to regroup some - mentally and spiritually - and lay the foundation for more reconstructions, conceptual work, and overallw... more »

You Cannot Grudge A Flower For Its Beauty

As I was practicing my Yoga today, the yogi leader was guiding me through my vinyasa and helping clear out the clutter, and she said these words:

"Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness.  Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, let go of what you cannot change, and be grateful with every breath that you take."

As I lay in corpse pose, aligning my breath with my relaxation - in my meditative mindset - it all made sense.  I was in the moment and nothing more.

So, I wish you all a wonderful moment in whatever moment that you are in and be grateful for where you are, and above all else, have a great weekend!

Enjoy! ♥

More Than Just A Community Now

Since Google Plus is a community itself, I thought it was time to expand and further the involvement by sharing the hashtag #theexpressiveeye  with everyone as the most recent addition to the Any Day Themes and Special Tags for all you eye lovers and photogs that love the eyes as much as I do!

I am sure you all know the drill - use the hashtag #theexpressiveeye  and tag me +Shantha Marie Fountain in it (optional) if you want me to give you some visual plus love!

In addition, please feel free to join the community if you would like, but it is certainly not a requisite to join in on this daily theme!

The Expressive Eye

“The soul, fortunately, has an interpreter - often an unconscious but still a faithful interpreter - in the eye.” ― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Anyone who has joined or been a part of the community I host, The Expressive Eye , knows I have a bit of an intangible obsession for the windows to the soul.  If you haven't seen the community, then feel free to check it out (https://plus.google.com/communities/112882247431159853034).

Shameless plugging aside, I really do love the way you can look into the eyes of anything and see life and emotion.  We can compose images with elaborate storytelling, but the eyes tell a story all their own and that is what makes them so magical.

In this image, of Mr. Froggy, the textures and patterns in his eyes were so mesmerizing, I could not help but get lost in looking at them.  The glitter of thecolor nea... more »

Defying Gravity

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down!

I'm through accepting limits
'cause someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost!
I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
And you can't pull me down

Show Me How You Work It

I have watched a few of Lindsay Adler's KelbyOne videos on shooting people of all different shapes and sizes - you know, regular people (all of us)!  One thing I loved about it was the psychology behind it.  Ask people what they really dislike and then use your knowledge and experience to get flattering portraits.

Now, I am a hippy girl, and I do not mean in the granola sense (though, I love me some granola).  I have "birthing hips" and I used to be so ashamed of being short with wide hips.  Actually, as I have aged over the last 10-11 years, I realize that this helps to make me look curvy in a good way if shot in a flattering angle.

With the aid of a few birthday presents (fancy dress, shrug, and shoes) and my iPhone, I took some of the advice Lindsay spoke about in regards to ladies with curves and pulled off thisflat... more »

Picking Back Up

“We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us. The old skin has to be shed before the new one can come. " ― Joseph Campbell

So, today I decided to infuse some life back into a very old blog of mine, which I started back in 2010 to work through my own thoughts about the real world around me.  It was aptly titled, I.R.L. because I was writing about my really, real day-to-day life and thoughts.

Honestly, it was a great release for hardships, struggles, and achievements of my own making.  Today, some of it was almost humorous to look back at too.  Like, a million years had passed since I thought I felt certain things and they were really just a couple of years old.

I got a chance to relive things like my big move, being diagnosed with vertigo, my boyfriend moving toFlorid... more »

The Creation of a Pop Art / Comic Make-Up

Since this series was fresh in my head, I decided to put together a BTS/Tut on the make-up behind it.  So, here it goes:

1: The Start - The first thing is go into this with a clean and moisturized palette (aka face).  I applied a cap since the wig was coming later and I wanted to keep my hair out of all the make-up that was about to go one.

2: Primer - I find it highly important to prime my face before doing make-up, but especially for photos because of the lighting and setting of the make-up.  You don't want to fill in and clone out pores if you don't have to, so when I prime, I use a pore refiner and a shine minimizer under my beauty balm.

3: Blocking and Concealing - The next step is two-fold. First I did a mediocre job blocking my brows because I didn't need them fully gone (because of all thebl... more »

An Editor's Choice Over At @KelbyOne

+Pete Collins was awesome enough to give my Welcome to Sin City image created in my Pop Art/ Comic Fusion series the Editor's Choice recognition this week over at NAPP/Kelby Training (now known as KelbyOne)!

Talk about an awesome birthday gift! =D

This is what he said:

 "Shantha Marie Fountain gives us a slightly retouched self-portrait. :D “Welcome to Sin City” is a fun graphic twist to a normal selfie. I always love to see folks experimenting with self-portraits because it shows a boldness and a willingness to learn and grow. Shantha used the influence of Sin City for her process, and I love the half-tone effect and the pop art feel. It is “spot” on… (OK, I will personally beat myself up for that one… sorry!) Keep up the great work!"

The Passing Of The Day Of The Double 3's

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone who wished me all the good vibes and birthday wishes.  You guys always amaze me with all the caring and support.  To give you a bit of an update on how that went, well....

It was an amazing day!

First, I slept in to a whole whopping 6:30 AM!  Impressive, I know.  Then, I got up and finished a few final projects for school because they thought it would be awesomesauce to make finals week the week of my birthday....Bastards!

Anywho, after that, I turned my brown and blonde ombre hair into that of brown and "holy hell your head is on fire" red!

From there, I went out to do a bit of personal pampering and shopping and visited the boyfriend up at work so that I could show of my new purchases and be surprised with a few gifts from there as well.<... more »

If the wind were like 40+ lbs. of raw puppy excitement willing to plow you over for loves and kisses!

This is my second shot for the +Get Critiqued! March Theme of Speed.  It was a whole lot of fun to try to do something I am really not great at and that is thinking in terms of motion.  +Christina Lawrie sure does know how to apply the pressure to a fashion and conceptual portraiture girl like me!

In this shot, I went with my trusty gal pal Tenshi to not disappoint in the action department, and she really didn't!  I loved this one because of her expression and the lights and shadows on her physique!

During one of the sessions I ran, I got a lot of great feedback and used it to make some edits!

I hope you all enjoy! ♥

Speed, Or Something Like It

This was my first craptastic shot for speed, and while the composition and achromatics are visually loverly, it really wasn't a conveyor of speed, which is why I deemed it a bit craptastic for theme coverage.

I had the great honor and privilege to run 2 of the +Get Critiqued! hang-outs this time around and want to say a special thank you to the two groups and +Christina Lawrie who allowed me to pitch in and help with a project-based critique I feel quite strongly about!

A few things about this shot:

1. It was taken after a very long ride and shot on a tripod so my shaky arms didn't screw it up LOL!
2. This was created at around 1:00 PM and the shadows were primed for this composition.

Welcome to Sin City

During my most recent self-portraiture reconstruction, I applied a very graphic design/comic book make-up to exemplify the pop art phenomenon in my own way, and I also touched upon the dark and moody artwork of Frank Miller's Sin City.  In this blend (shown below) I brought the pop art and infused the edgy designs for my own parody of both, which sprung to mind #moviemashuptuesday  and the awesomesauce hosts +Mark Rodriguez and +Isabelle Fortin.

While this is slightly atypical from how I usually mash victims subjects up into movie posters, this time around, I wanted to recreate something inspired by a graphic novel turned movie instead.

I do most certainly hope you enjoy! ♥ xoxo

So, +Jeff Moreau and +Sandra Parlow laid down the gauntlet with the challenge of shooting a #macro  at f/16 or higher for the #macromonday  theme.  Well in the immortal words of Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) from How I Met Your Mother, this was "Challenge Accepted".

I grabbed the old tripod and diffused flash near a lamp and decided to shoot the chain pull for turning it on and off.

This is the result from this little experiment/exploration.

Sin Is In

Another of my all time favorites is Frank Miller when it comes to ingenious character design in graphic novels.  To pay homage to an idol and hero of mine, I decided to recreate Sin City from my pop art series.

Most of the graphic lines were created with my NYX noir liquid black liner only enhanced by Photoshop and other various make-up from my arsenal.

I really hope you enjoy! ♥

A Reconstruction of Pop Art Personification: Lichtenstein's Crying Girl

For this #selfysundayproject , I decided to go full on for a reconstruction of Roy Lichtenstein's The Crying Girl because it is one of my favorite pieces of art and I wanted to add my own poppy, qwerky spin to the genre.

If you are not familiar with the piece, it is a 1964 porcelain enamel on steel, which can be seen at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Crying_Girl_(enamel).jpg.

If you are not familiar with Roy Lichtenstein, as an artist, he was an American pop artist. During the 1960s, along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and James Rosenquist among others, he became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work defined the basic premise of pop art through parody. Favoring the comic strip as his main inspiration, Lichtenstein produced hard-edged, precise compositions thatd... more »

I really worked hard to consider which image I would like to submit to +Ivan Makarov's #PlusPhotoCollectionIII  this year, but for some reason, this series entitled _Here_ really felt like the culmination of all things I have learned about art, design and photography - not to mention, what better way to embrace and express the The People or Our Creations than with the use of vibrant color like that of this world?!?!

Let Her Go

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
'Cause Love comes slow and it goes so fast
Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
Cause you loved her too much and you dived too deep

Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

I was incredibly moved by the lyrics of this song for a few different reasons.  One of which is because I think we all know a little about missing things and people we have let go, and to some degree we all have regrets.  Sometimes we only recall theset... more »
