Happiness is Everywhere

“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”
― Franz Kafka
Love those vintage suitcases! I'm a sucker for the old things in life which are really making a come-back.

@mozette You know I saw them in my storage unit, and I wondered if I could use them. So I did a little searching on photography and old suitcases, and I saw this idea. Since this was shot at an old train depot, what better prop? Thank you!

A very wise statement! These suitcases are is such good condition!

@lbluejaye8 They're really difficult to come by in such good condition as well. I've managed to find 2 in the past 4 years which I use for storage around my house... I know that sounds weird, but they are so pretty and look good when you open a wardrobe when you really need to store things away.

@maggiemae Yes they are! They are immaculate inside, also! I made sure they were very sturdy before I let the little boy sit on them, but I'm so glad it turned out like it did - cowboy boots, big smile, and old suitcases!

@mozette I didn't realize I had such prizes. I will make sure to take care of them! They were in a storage shed - I think they belonged to my mother.

Very nice shot!

You know Kafka ?! An Austrian author I like very much. It really pleases me that he is apparently also present in the English language. A particular author.

@jerome I love Kafka, also! Glad you like the photo! Yes, this seems very uplifting for Kafka!

Belletristik is so important. Unfortunately my job stresses me so much that I never got around to it in recent times. Kafka was a difficult person, his childhood was difficult, also his personal relationships. His writings are not easy. They are great literature.

Well done!

@mcdougaj Thanks - one of my favorites! Everyone says those suitcases are hard to come by and I had them sitting in the shed outside. Think they were my mom's . . .

I saw this the other day and I thought I left a comment on it, but apparently not! It's so cute- the props, the setting, the boots, the model!
