Let me know which is your favorite.
This week’s photo challenge sponsored by WordPress is the subject “Wrong.” I have posted two interpretations in the Lens section.
Photograph One: The image of the bicycle was taken yesterday on the University of Delaware campus. I was exploring one of the art department studios, camera ready. It’s the end of summer session, and each floor was lined in emptiness except for an occasional sign of human life. So I had to ask myself: Is it wrong for the bicycle to be parked in the doorway? Is it wrong to leave it unattended sans lock? Who will be wrong if it disappears?
Photograph Two: This label in three languages was affixed on the side of a large locked metal container that was perched in an alleyway. I was drawn to it, because it was in such disarray. In order to read its warnings, I had to move really close. While the hazardous message is clear, the label also is ready to self destruct. I was a bit dismayed. Wasn’t it wrong that it had not been replaced with a larger and weather-resistant sign?
As always these photo challenges can have multiple interpretations. And I do so enjoy that puzzlement. Sometimes the image for submission emerges instantly. At other times it is a stretch to conjure what to enter. But the true fun and satisfaction comes from the moment of fulfillment. Thanks WordPress.
