This is probably one of my favorite photos that I’ve ever taken. Not that the photo itself is some masterpiece by any means, but the scene that I stumbled upon in Ueno Park during my first trip to Japan spoke to me.
No matter our lot in life, fundamentally we all need friendship. We all need to feel the love of a another living thing.
I have a print of the original photo hanging up in my cubicle at work. It’s a little reminder that each day we have the choice to show love, respect, and friendship to those around us.
