06 - Simply Red

06 - Simply Red

Week 06 - Monday 2/5 to Sunday 2/11

I have been including background stories with the PAW photos that explain the reason it was chosen and perhaps a short backstory. This week, I am at somewhat of a loss. This photo of a red balloon being struck by a shaft of sunlight in a darkened room could be the aftermath of a grand 40th birthday party thrown for our son but logistics and the fact that he doesn’t lean toward grand celebrations precluded one. I can think of things it could be said to represent like, “Humanity’s Anger At Life’s Injustice” but that’s art gallery speak that is usually just lipstick on a pig. The truth? I saw it when I got up to get a cup of coffee, smiled and grabbed my camera.
