126/365 Mr. O'Keefe

Boring Mr. O’keefe once told our biology class about a breathtaking seascape he had photographed, enlarged, framed, and gave to a friend after cutting up the negative - making it one-of-a-kind. Destroying the negative seemed profoundly courageous to this untethered tenth-grader. I suddenly liked him.

Yes. Definitely. It was one of those moments - it shifted everything.

"cutting up the negative"

those are powerful words, and given enough time, the context can be twisted in so many ways

I like him too, and thanks for sharing
