Pony Ride by ~Ravven78 as the photographer herself puts it "[this photo] seems to sum up two entirely different approaches to life." Got to love it.

Pony Ride

This quick snap at a ponyride in Los Angeles has always been one of my favourites. It seems to sum up two entirely different approaches to life.

I have viewed this photo on numerous occasions and I could almost write a book by now on all of the symbols, their relationships, and what they mean by this point =D Such an awesome photograph, its composition makes the message so strong =D

lol, I know what you mean. Not only the obvious contrast between the boy and the girl, but things like the cruelty inherent in parents forcing their terrified kids to be strapped to the ponies. "You're having a great time, Johnny! Smile for the video!" "Waaaaaaaaah!" There's expression on the faces of the bored, irritated ponies as well.

I really like how the two kids reactions are so very different. It really is amazing how a picture can say so much.

You're right -- this picture does represent two personalities of life. You either go with the flow or cry like a baby whenever something unknown or unexpected happens. :+favlove:
