Day 60 of 366 Day Project
“Magic is everywhere, explore & be amazed everyday!”
Todays photo is a portrait of a special friend Matt Jones portraying ‘wonder’. When Matt, from Property Resources Shop asked if I would do a few portrait images for his online business I jumped at the opportunity of helping innovative businesses that help and support communities. I chose this photo for today because it fits the theme of my 366 Day Project; exploring, being inquisitive with life and finding the magic that surrounds us everywhere everyday.
Meaning of Wonder is a feeling of amazement and admiration, caused by something beautiful, remarkable, or unfamiliar (noun). Desire to know something; feel curious (verb).
Wonder is probably not an emotion many of us experience on a regular basis; a childlike sense of wonder is hard to achieve when you’re busy avoiding giant slush puddles on your way to work. But perhaps we should seek out the feeling more often, as psychologists keep finding new ways that it benefits us. Research has indicated that wonder seems to encourage collaboration, for one; it also appears to slow down our perception of the passage of time. And the latest study, published recently in the journal Emotion, suggests that wondering promotes good health.
