Monotony pretty much exists in everyone’s life. Some of us are so caught up in it, we don’t even realize it. Life becomes a routine and we find ourselves doing the same old thing everyday. The horses in this image go around in circles everyday on the Carousel. It’s typical life for them and that’s what they know to do. Perhaps, it’s healthy sometimes to just break away from routine and discover what else the world has to offer. Maybe we’ll find happiness we never knew existed. This piece all started, when looking through my photographs, I noticed that the heads of the two horses in the front were forming the shape of a heart. All I could see was beauty, tenderness and love.
