Write 31 Days: Instagram Series

I still remember the click of the metal tin. The smooth forms in perfect order, resting silently in hollow beds. Pencils. Waiting to be swept up in passionate fingers, begging to sing onto the page. My eyes scanned hungrily over the names- Vermillion, Emerald Green, Burnt Umber. Somehow they seemed enchanted, a word giving untold magic to the living colour.

I’ve never been able to artistically capture that hovering swirl and pour it onto a page, except in the form of words. Words are my magic, my portal to other realms. Photos are the closest medium I have for expressing the physical form of that creativity – harnessing the vibrancy of the moment and capturing it for pondering over later.

This month I’m linking these loves – photographs, colours, words through the Write 31 Days Instagram Series challenge.
