Pensiveness a Powerful Emotion?

Pensive, according to the Dictionary means “deeply or seriously thoughtful.” Whenever one loses oneself in a moment or thought or begins to day dream this is the state in which the pensive emotion takes over. Pensive is not quite sad, not quite happy, but rather a neural neutral emotion which lives within the depth of the mind. Pensiveness here is what helps to define these photos i have put together, moments people experience where deep thought or distraction drives the mind to think and lose itself from the reality around it. Enjoy, and think about these photos, because that’s what this post is about.
