Resilient Ringo Starr
Here the fuzziness of this old photo seems to steal away from the impact of the portrait. Still, it's a good photo!
Again using highlighting, contrasting, and a poster filter, the portrait becomes defined. Resilience is not about bouncing back from painful or negative situations. It's not about generating pain or negativity for others with cynicism, unkindness or hostility. Resilience has more to do with suspending cooperation, in order to focus and move forward. Ringo Starr learned resilience early in his childhood. It seems he only does things when his heart is totally in it. Long Live, Ringo!
