The Perks of Being a Wallflower

Charlie says, “Old pictures look very rugged and young, and the people in the photographs always seem a lot happier than you are.” Do you agree with this statement?

Yep, you finally found a quote I agree with. I don't like posed "happy" pictures and prefer those spontaneous pictures that no one knows are being taken. Poses and "smile for the camera" do not reflect real life and often mislead the people looking at them. It's similar to girls and body image...... many young girls look at the smiling, beautiful girl in a photograph and wish they were that girl. Unfortunately, they don't understand that when you take away the photo shopping, air brushing, make-up, and hair stylist...... the girl doesn't exist. Charlie looks at these pictures in the same way; he's wishing for something that probably isn't real.
