Baby Baby

There was a BBQ in my friend’s place, and I checked the palm lines of my friends

Lukas and Lucy’s baby Lia’s. —– Hm —– hm hm !

Anyhow, a baby is —– fundamentally cute.

Why CUTE ?

A notion of beauty came from the eyes of grown-up’s. Therefore, it

needs the exact shape and the proportion etc etc.

A baby got everything out of proportion.   Big eyes big round cheeks short legs

etc etc.   Hence they are not beautiful but cute or pretty.


Beautiful woman is the eyes to appreciate —– though not necessary nice to talk with.  Especially too perfect

beauties often repel us.  Or at least me.  ( Anyhow I know I don’t match them.  Ha ha ha  😀  )

The charm point, which attract us is somewhere a little bit out of perfection.   Out of proportion.

So, the charming point lies between perfection and a monster. —– So that, a bit out of standard is a charm,

but  if it’s gone too far makes a monster.  How much [a bit] is depend on the individual taste.  Some likes more

and some got taste of even a monster.  In most of  case, where the people feel charming and cute, such

as big eyes etc are in fact the typical feature of the baby.

Cute disarm and open the mind of grown-ups and make them feel joy.  So, everybody loves it.

Simply because the babies are absolutely harmless (except few historical accidents 🙂 )  and the living sample of

the glory of the life  ( save the pain and the hardship of the parents found in reality  🙂 )

If anybody really encounter a creature 6 feet tall looks like a baby in the picture, definitely frighten them

though, here, she is just a small baby,  only makes you smile.

Isn’t she CUTE ?

      That’s exactry what I meant ! ! !
      When we expect a photo to convey a message, it is not Zen Photography.
      That is what a photo to function for a purpose. = Communication.
      Same as what we expect to the writing to carry a message.
      So that, on the face, Zen talking often make no sense 😀
      To see everything or the Universe / Dharma in the nothing —– is Zen.
      You saw exact point.

    ahh, although i doubt if this baby’s parents will be delighted with the exaggeration of their cute baby’s imperfection or your zen photography 😀

      Thanks to the digital SLR’s convenience, the parents who were standing next,
      had seen the result on the spot and amazed, and now they got the copies.
      —– by the way, as I wrote, this kind of photo which carrys an emphasized intention is not
      a Zen Photography. They are for fun, and Fish-eye lens is good to make jokes. 😀
