Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers

This week Sara Rosso gives us the following challenge: Layers. Layers can reveal, conceal, and make something more complex. They can vary in size, texture, color, or functionality. Each layer can have its own story, meaning, or purpose. They can overlap, blend, or be distinctly separate. A layer doesn’t have to be a part of a single object but can even be a slice of a multifaceted image or scene. In a new post specifically for this challenge, share a photo which means LAYERS to you!

“A grownup is a child with layers on.” -Woody Harrelson

“Everyone has different layers to who they are.” -Carmen Electra

“It’s our challenges and obstacles that give us layers of depth and make us interesting. Are they fun when they happen? No. But they are what make us unique. And that’s what I know for sure…I think.”  -Ellen DeGeneres

“When you first hear Mozart’s music, your first impression is that it’s very alive, but if you peel away the layers, you can hear sorrow and sadness behind it, and that’s what I try to be: multi-layered.” -Park Chan-wook

“I like the idea of the documentary as a portrait. There’s not a chronological beginning, middle, and end structure. You build something in the editing room that’s shaped by getting to know the person and digging deeper, unpeeling the layers of them as you get to know them.” -Spike Jonze

“Most of the things that really matter require faith. ‘How do I know that my wife loves me?’ ‘How do I know that Mozart’s ‘Jupiter Symphony’ is sublime and beautiful?’ There are all sorts of things wich come at a more lowly level than that-‘How do I know that two plus two equals four?’ There are different layers, different types of knowing.” -N.T. Wright

“When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than God, and crowned them with glory and honour.” -Psalm 8:3-5 Please be sure to check out the other entries here.
