To me, November has always been a moody time. Sometimes depressing even. I live in Norway, and the sun sets at 16:20 (4:20 PM) at the beginning of November and 15:20 (3:20 PM) at the end of November. That means that when we have dinner, it´s pitch black outside of the window. The darkness can really make a person depressed. Along with missing the sunlight, there is usually a lot of wind or rain or cold as well, as the typical autumn weather.
Usually, I just block myself from the outside world and rot inside the apartment, playing video games or binge-watching Netflix series. But this year I have a different plan in mind. Something that could teach me to appreciate the month of November in a brand new way. I am such a true color addict. I love colors so much. Its such a big part of who I am, and what I do, especially in my work as a tattoo artist. My color use is definitely my specialty.
But the colors of the autumn is fading, and the grey tones of nature are growing into artistic contrasts, like black branches on a white sky. And since I am such an Instagram Feed Nerd, why not just make it into a Theme challenge? It’s my first time ever doing an Instagram challenge, so why not just make my own? In the entire November, every day I will post a picture in black and grey that shows beauty. I am going to do this to show my self and others that there can be beauty and happiness even if there’s no color.
Would you like to join me?
It would be awesome to see your photos, maybe we can all inspire each other. Just use the hashtag #blackgreynovember and post at least one photo in black and grey every day in November. I am starting it all tomorrow. Are you?
