Drip to Be Square

Project 52, week 13: Nerd. I couldn’t think of anything nerdy I would want to photograph (a nerd with big glasses, computers, etc). So I considered some associations and synonyms for the word “nerd”, like “geek”, “dork”, “anorak”, or even the Japanese “otaku”. Two somewhat older synonyms gave me the idea for this photo: “drip” and “square”. They reminded me of Huey Lewis & The News’ song Hip to Be Square. So I grabbed a square vase and did some top-down droplet photography.

Incidentally: I’m at 25% of my project 52!
