You can view more of Colleen’s photos on her flickr photostream.
This is a self portrait of Colleen titled “Hello myself, may I have this dance”. It was taken on a rooftop in Brooklyn, New York City.
What do you see when you look at this picture?
The striking skyline from a very vibrant city? They say New York is a city that never sleeps.
The red polka dot dress stands out. Is it vintage? Did Colleen make it herself?
What about the graffiti? What does it say? Who wrote it?
I see a metaphor. Don’t wait for someone to ask you to dance, when you can dance with yourself. If there is something you want to do, don’t wait for someone else to suggest it, strike out and do it yourself.
Ask yourself to dance, and say yes!
