Photography 101 has its challenges. Monday’s pop of color was no different.
I took another sunrise photo and thought that’d be it:
And then inspiration struck as I was cleaning out my supply cabinet and found a hoard of forgotten pencils – and just in time for standardized testing, too!
Stand Apart by J.E. People always say to be yourself until you do, then you find that everybody lied to you: "Your hair is too short, too long, too bright, too dark; your music's too loud, too goth, too punk, too rock; your art is too something; why can't you just be normal like us? You're so fake, focused on the external; fit back in the box in our monochrome world where no one stands out, no sensitivities curdled." So we hide ourselves away behind a facade of what passes for normal; believing we're flawed we put on a show for the world to behold while the things that make us us grow withered and cold. In a world that sees in charcoal grey and midnight black we see in bright neon hues and refuse to go back to the way things were before. Choosing rather to wrestle our innermost demons, we risk and dare all to be the yellow pencil.
Personally, I like the first pencil photograph best; what do you think?
