Swords to plowshares

” … and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks …” – Isaiah 2:4

Pencils plunge into yellowed grass. Halfway buried like forgotten tools, they resemble old plows left behind for modern convenience.

The yellow No. 2 pencil, once a staple of the classroom, a ubiquitous implement in education, appears destined to fade like the horse and plow. A useless decoration like old machinery in a front yard with lantana crawling green and blooming orange around rusted spokes.

Our roaming photographer used just available light to capture the image. Bringing only the center pencil into focus was necessary to keep the image from being too busy, too distracting to the eye. He keeps it simple, following basic rules of photography to make an interesting photograph.

The once sharp edges of the pencils are buried in the sand as the clamor for technology to be the savior of the classroom rings louder and louder.
