Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

13 Mar



They go against every fiber of my tomboy being , especially if they’re pink.

They go against my athletic-New-Balance-wearing feet.

They go against trying to sneak in the house after curfew if you’re a teenager.

They go against running away from a mugger.

They go against my jeans and t-shirt attire.

After one hour, they go against my La Chona dancing moves.

They go against my lumbar.

They go against my hip flexor and knee muscles.

They work against my gravity-challenged clutzy self when I’m going down the stairs.

But do they make me look sexy if I’m standing still …


But I’m against that too … I’m a mother of two kids under three years of age … I’d rather not get the tap-tap-tap. I prefer sleep.

      Thanks! I’m not much of a photographer, so I try to make up for it with words 😉 Glad you like it. Thanks for stopping by and reading.

    Very well written. And what a nice unique left-turn approach to the challenge.
