Beyond Layers: Quote Challenge

Today in Kim Klassen's Beyond Layers, she challenged her followers to come up with a quote for an image she took at Huntington Beach, CA during the Shutter Sisters Oasis.

Although many saw the woman on the beach in the image of a duck, I enlarged it and saw that it appeared the woman was wrapped in a towel. This led me to wonder about the chill in the air and I discovered a quote referencing the chill of one's spiritual environment. I thought this very fitting and proceeded to process the photo to accentuate that feeling.

I love how everyone came up with a unique idea that expressed what might have been going on in this setting. If this woman runs across all this different version, I wonder what she might think.

  3. I tried to leave a comment the other day, but my husband called on facetime...so I never hit the "publish" button. Silly me.

    What I remember saying was...I really love the part of the quote "Refuse to be Average."

    Oh, and I saw the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series; the foreign versions. When I was younger, I wanted to look like Lisbeth Salander. My current career does not allow me to have that look ;) For me, it is a look, a style. For some, a way of life. For others, that look is a way to protect themselves...as most people avoid them or are at times fearful of them. When I did have a half shaved head with blue streaks, people treated me differently. I enjoyed getting a "rise" out of people and observing just how prejudiced humans can be.
