During this month, I am sharing some of my preferred portraits.
Every time you will see a different person, and yet they will have a common feature, their facial expressions sharing many deep emotions. Their expressions told me that they were perhaps remembering, dreaming, forgetting, or simply contemplating life with peace of mind.
I felt privileged to capture a second of their lives. It is up to all of us to imagine each one of their life’s stories.
I am posting for the Writer’s Quote Wednesday of my friend Colleen Chesebro’s from Silver Threading. And I am also posting for the Photo Rehab. The Photo Rehab is a community to share photos, learn from each other and connect. Want to know more about it and see more photos from talented photobloggers? See below.
In December 2014, after completing the Photo101 course, I opened the Photo Rehab Event in this blog, a ‘healing clinic’, for all of us who love photography (hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters and enthusiasts) who missed the course and daily interaction with other photobloggers.
I am always inspired by the photos shared within our community of photobloggers, and for that I want to share my enthusiasm with you.

HOW TO JOIN THE PHOTO REHAB
Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7
Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.
Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.
Who can join: Anyone can join. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.
You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Trigger Happy, come and join us: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”
How does it work:
- Shoot a photo.
- Prepare your post and publish it. Remember to Pingback to this post and to use the tag #PhotoRehab so that we can find your post in the WP reader.
- Add your photo to the link provided below. In this way, you expose your photo to the other participants and the audience of the Photo Rehab.
