How Could I Resist This Colour?
You’re in a shopping centre and you’re concentrating on a million things. You’re on a tight schedule. You don’t have time to stop for anything. You know the feeling, right?
But I saw a booth where children could sit and do special sand-art projects. You know the type - you pull a set of stickers off a page to reveal patterns on adhesive paper. You pull one sticker off at a time and trickle coloured sand onto the paper. Because of the sticky surface, the sand adheres immediately. At the finish, the paper is covered with a huge range of striking colours.
This ochre sand caught my eye - and I also liked the fact that the green string attached to the cheap non-gloss spoon was clearly visible as it trailed across the ochre sand.
Suddenly, I wasn’t in THAT much of a hurry. Miraculously, I found time to take a couple of shots.
