Project 52 9/52 {Colorblind}

I knew exactly what I wanted to shoot for this assignment. My oldest son is colorblind and so is my father.

When I first found out he was colorblind, I was so sad… then I did a little internet searching and I was crying. I couldn’t believe how his world looked to him. All the beautiful colors everywhere- he didn’t see it… I was so sad. There is nothing that can be done for colorblindness. Wesley’s doctor was actually fascinated by it, it is kind of rare. So given this weeks theme I couldn’t help but capture my son to fill the assignment.

Here is the image below and the original caption with it (little redundant… so sorry 🙂JBweb-1335-2

{Colorblind} 9/52. I knew exactly what I wanted to shoot this time around. My oldest son is colorblind. When we found out I was a little sadder than I probably should’ve been… there is nothing that can be done but as an artist who values and appreciates color I felt so sad how his world looks to him. Then God reminded me all the sweeter heaven will be for him. This little budding artist has his own hurtles to conquer in the color area of his life.

I had to edit in vivid color of the irony of it all. My sons world is full for blue and variations of a greenish brown color. If only he could see this pic for the color it really is
