The story leading to my actual photo is probably more entertaining than the final photo I submitted. I've been thinking of creative ideas on how to use paper as a photo theme since this was posted. Being that tomorrow is the last day of the contest, I decided to settle with an idea I had involving a quote written on a piece of paper, which would be placed somewhere nice. It was a weak idea, but it was all that I had.
I went out, clipboard and pencil in hand, wrote a quote (that I'm sure you're all familiar with) on a piece of paper, ripped the paper around it, and placed it in the grass. I tried a few angles and eventually just decided to settle for whatever looked best. I wasn't in love with the result, but it was better than nothing.
As I headed back from my walk, I just so happened to stumble across what you see in the photo: A stairwell filled with Post-It notes creating pixelated video game characters! The photo was a bit distracting due to the reflection on the glass, so I decided to use the Android Aviary app and remove the colour, with the exception of where the characters are.
