My friend Kurt Parten shared a link on Facebook today. It was a link to photos of ‘neatly organized things’. He added an eye-catching message to his post: “For my OCD friends…” That certainly got my attention.
When I saw the post, I smiled… and grumbled. I have yet another theme to add to my ever growing list of photos I need to try on my own. On the bright side… I remembered I have these bear photos I’ve been sitting on for 2 years. I’ve wanted to use them but didn’t know how… until today!
Admittedly, they aren’t neatly organized but they certainly are cute!
The bears have just barely assembled for their annual Bear Hug Convention. Bears from all over the world convene for this great event.
Here they are in a sing-a-long. Bear in mind, they aren’t known for their singing ability. Most passersby hearing the noise just grin and bear it.
Here they are preparing for a group Bear Hug.
My buddy Joseph decided to reorganize the assembly.
Joseph decided to organize the bears by color.
The bears certainly are fun to arrange. Even 2 years later… I miss those bears!
Hopefully these photos bear witness to the art and playfulness of photography.
