Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Masks


“I wish everyday could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.” ~ R.J. Palacio

Masks fascinate me and make me happy.  They are reflections of unique cultures, worn like bridges from the outer phenomenal world to the inner person. Embossed with bold colors and expressions, masks evoke many reactions to the beholder, but for me, they always make me smile in wonder.  Masks are the poetry of a culture, the exquisite spirits of the past, and entertaining portrayals of our inner emotions.

Enjoy the masks of Nicaragua. I hope they make you smile. 🙂

And this just in! Nicaragua is the 8th happiest country in the world! Click here.

  1. Mask r expressions of people’s emotions I believe. What people choose as their mask always feels like a reflection of themselves. Or what they chose to hide/express. It’s always interesting to view other cultures and the uniqueness of their cultures and experience. Lovely choices of masks to post. Thank you. Hope ur search for a new camera has come to fruit.
