Misfit Photo #1: An Entryway

Misfit: One who is considered to be disturbingly different from others.

This definition of a misfit comes from The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language and describes my own perception of self quite accurately. I mentioned in the About Me section of my blog that I feel oddly out of place in my suburban neighborhood. The truth is…I often feel slightly out of place no matter where I go.

It wasn’t until recently that I realized that being out of place can sometimes be a beautiful thing. Photography showcases this thought perfectly. Items that are “disturbingly different” often make photos more interesting and engaging to the eye. So, I have decided to post one Misfit Photo per week with this theme. Here’s the first photo:

An Entryway

My backyard fence lines up perfectly. Plank to plank. Except for one. This misfit serves as an entryway to our backyard for furry little creatures. They come and go as they please. This plank is their entryway.

Photography note: I used the quick edge burn action from PW Actions to make the edges of the photo darker. It helped enhance the misfit plank.
