Challenge: Colorful Objects (DPL4 WK4) (Standard Editing)
Collection: Portfolio
Date: Jul 28, 2018
Date Uploaded: Jul 29, 2018

a friend of mine tried to end his own life last week. fortunately he was unsuccessful. it was shocking to me that i saw him days before and after and didn't notice anything off in personality/emotion/behaviour. this image tries to capture the idea of being blind to the important things in life, colour in this case representing fragility/hopelessness/whatever.

i was actually pretty selfish submitting this during the dpl, but i'm glad that it resonated with people on here. the colour one may not have done quite so badly:

I was wondering why the choice of black and white. I am really sorry to read about your friend. I am sure he will have many difficult days ahead but I hope he finds some bright spots this go around. My thoughts and prayers that he finds peace and comfort. Thanks for sharing this story.

I liked it prior to reading your comment. It is even better now. Congratulations on the well deserved blue balloon.

There was nothing in the challenge description that said the image had to be colorful ó only the objects. I understood your intention with this image, although I didnít know the sad and disturbing story behind it. So many of our best photos come from our subconscious trying to work out disturbing and painful things.

I'm not sure why people thought this image is off-theme, as these are obviously colorful objects

I know you just entered this to be cheeky, but It never ceases to me amaze me the average commentors score afterwards :-)

I remember when bsspurgen?? Entered the black and white image of the red wagon in a red challenge opened my eyes to voting with my mind not necessarily my eyes. Too conceptual for the soccer mom types on here judging by the comments, is imagination is dead in this age of technology?

Absolutely colorful once you close your eyes. Thank you, and a balloon:

B&W are colors...I guess.

Going for the brown? B&W in a color image? I have a good imagination, but not quite that good! Might have been interesting in color....

i was hoping for a bw in this challenge i think something slightly more obviously colourful would have made it easier for all the dpc's giving you 1 for it but im giving you a 9 :)
