The silvery blue rectangle, cool amidst the shadow-black and liquid-gold. The only one of its kind. Daring to stand alone. Glowing with its own internal light. The different one.
Was that what drew me to this image? That celebration of uniqueness? The subtle flouting of the rules by being blue instead of gold?
I took this photograph because of that single blue rectangle. It was the variation within the pattern; it was the reason I stopped short and pressed the shutter button. It was distinctive – its icy blue set off by the surrounding heat. A lesson in the beauty of different.
When I noticed it shining at my feet, I looked around for the source. But it was a mystery – I was unable to determine the cause. It just was – there in all its “blue rectangle-ness” – shining forth, demanding that I look.
And somehow, that simple blue rectangle of light - defined by shadows, surrounded by a crowd of gold – quietly spoke to me about being true to myself. About being brave enough to embrace what makes me unique, to step into my “blueness”, even when everyone else chooses gold.
Have you found your color?
