There are no lines in nature,
only areas of colour,
one against another.
– Edouard Manet
The CBBH Photo Challenge: Multicoloured.
is like a box of crayons
that colour your world.
Constantly colour your picture grey,
and your picture will always be bleak.
Try adding some bright colours
by including humour,
and your picture
begins to lighten up.
– Allen Klein
The Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful. A good motto: nothing will brighten up your day – or your life – as thankfulness will.
When they caught him they’d shut him away.
He’d been sitting next to his latest victim spattered head to foot. Lost in thought. His fingers idly drawing patterns in a pool of blood. Almost playing with it. The knife tossed carelessly aside.
They thought he was crazy, He could see the pity in their eyes, once you looked past the horror and disgust.
They just didn’t understand: he only did for the colour. That colour of colours. The colour of rubies. The colour of life. And fresh blood.
What a pity it dried to such an ugly rust brown.
