Don't think I've completely lost it. These images aren't political commentary or a cry for help.
My husband brought home these blue bullets - made for shooting snakes in particular - and I sincerely thought they were beautiful. I've always loved the color combination of blue and silver. I was also fascinated that you could see the shot through the blue tips.
They are made for a revolver, which is another object I know isn't traditionally considered beautiful, but I find a certain bit of poetry in the gunmetal and the revolving cylinder. If looking at a firearm conjures a negative feeling for you, I ask you to view these photos objectively. Don't think about their use, or their purpose. Think instead about the shapes and colors, and the way the light bounces off them. SEE them differently, even if just for a moment.
I think these may be my next collection.
