Object – WPhotoC

In this week’s challenge, I’d like you to use one tangible object as both your inspiration and subject.

These are the words of Cheri, taken from her WordPress challenge for this week. Object? What’s the object? Why worry? After all, the object may be as insignificant as a few grains of sand in our shoe or a magnitude of another dimension… the ball of rock spinning its way about the sun. The ball we call Earth.

I don’t know why I was reminded of this photo in particular… or, was it that the image was eating at me more than a month after I’d taken the photo? You really have to look closely at the image to see the object I’m on about. The blue splash of colour on the steps… looks almost as if the person who put it there was mindful of colour coding with the door.

A splash of blue... on the steps of the Custom House, Dublin, Ireland

However, that’s exactly where I ask you to have a second look. That object is a sleeping bag. Bright blue… three days before Christmas. The chilling truth is that inside that bright blue sleeping bag is a human. Yes, even in western capital cities on this planet of ours we still have not managed to break the horrid cycle of homelessness. Need I say more?

    Pass by it every morning on my way to work. Those railings weren’t always there either, they were put up to stop people from sleeping further underneath.
