In Merriam Webster’s dictionary ‘seriousness’ is defined as showing, thoughtful or subdued appearance. Webster also defined seriousness as something relating to a matter of importance. Seriousness is probably one of the more fascinating emotions, especially during the least appropriate times. Most people associate serious expressions with anger, deep dark secrets, illnesses, and arguments. However, as it turns out serious expressions can be associated with more whimsical moments and tend to pop up in the most random places such as work, home, a restaurant and even at a bar. The following photographs, which are also posted on my Flickr page, show strangers and family members with serious expressions in odd places and moments.
