Quotable Quest: Week four-five.
“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.”
What’s done in the dark always comes to light.
This was the last dandelion in the area of grass, the last wish. This photo was taken using raw photography. In it’s original form, the dandelion wasn’t so vibrant , but my wishes-the ones I long for usually in the darkness of my thoughts are very vibrant. They are very detailed and crisp, relative to the dandelion. I tried to make the viewer lose depth perception by having all focus on the wish, it seems alot bigger than it actually is, macro photography ftw.
Lately one of my biggest wishes often left in the dark has come true. I have a father now, after 14 years of absence I have the other half of me. It’s a long story, a long sad story. I have him now and I am complete. That is the reason for the unfocused dirt,leaves and grass; quite frankly I don’t care about the past, i don’t care about the 14 years he missed out on, i just care about this wish , that has come true, and like the half destroyed dandelion it has it’s flaws and imperfections, it wasn’t executed so well, but it came true. Precisely.
It’s kind of ridiculous how I’ve honestly never noticed these pots. Once you walk in my house it’s literally, right there. They are so abstract, and all so different. And the patterns on them are very detailed. Who knew that beautiful pieces of artwork were sitting right in my dining room? Well, maybe my mom. -Kimie
So today I was walking out to my bus and I saw this flower and I thought “Hey, I’ve never seen this flower before even though I’ve been going to this school for seven months.” Plus it was the only one like it around where I was standing and it looked kind of lonely. So I took a picture -Emily
So, this week, I was really hoping that I would find something that was so beautiful, that was there all my life, but only appeared now, but I didn’t. All week, I was trying so hard to find something, but I couldn’t. But then as I was sitting at my bus stop, which was my old elementary school, waiting for my dad to pick me up, I noticed that my bus stop is really pretty. Or at least, I find it very pretty.
I had such an urge to just lay in the grass and let time catch up to me, but I didn’t. I hate to admit it, but it was because I was too scared to. So instead, I embraced the beauty that surrounded me by taking pictures of it. And that was it. This is probably a really mundane scene that other schools share, but it just amazes me that I went to school here for 6 years, and yet never felt this way before until today. - Tam
Sometimes, the most beautiful things go unnoticed, and passed by, even if you walk past it every day.
This flower is so beautiful. And I’ve never noticed it before but it’s been blooming every spring for years. - Judith
Quotable Quest: Week three.
“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second”
Most of us go through our lives and follow a routine, and hardly ever stray from the path for too long. This week, it’s time to take a different approach. Let’s keep away from the long straight brick road, and instead, take the scenic route, into the grass. This week, we’re going to take at least one photo of things that we haven’t notice before, whether it’s of that neighbor that never comes out of the house or of a flower that you’ve never ever seen before.
So here is a picture I drew of my back door in my house, and my cat. I didn’t color it on purpose. The cat in a way represents himself, me and many other people longing to get out of a place they are stuck in. Someone who is in this place they don’t enjoy anymore. The view and the house in the background represent another new place and life. So in a nutshell this picture represents a person/animal longing for freedom. - Judith
Sometimes I’m not exactly sure what my brain is doing to me. - Emily
