I have been scanning a lot of old pictures from when my girls were small. (trying to reduce the clutter around here)
I have been looking at people's faces - JW faces. They look dazed. I just finished an old friend's wedding. The bride looks stoned and I know she never drank anything. The groom looks like he would rather be anywhere else (maybe at a door in service) Another good friend sits and stares off into space oblivious to the events around her.
Some smile when the camera is in front of them but the eyes are so telling. People are not free to be themselves.
I have a few pictures of the bride and groom at our home the next morning. They are giggling and laughing like newlyweds. They are relaxed. They are happy.
But those group photos are eerie. I have other pictures and will be going through them but has anyone else noticed this?
I know there are psychological reasons for this but to see it is really something
