highlighter kids. what an appropriate & awesome name :)

It's just like the punk or goth movement. It's about making a statement and attitude. "We don't absorb the sunlight, we reflect it thus becoming miniature suns ourselves"
Or they just worship Doug Henning.

Well, for me highlighters kids are like Hollister kids-Mommy and Daddy's brads that read seventeen magazine, talks in a shrill tone of voice and go shopping to the mall “totally awesome-last season” clothes. Heard music from Avril Lavigne, The Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, looovveeee High School Musical, Camp Rock, and the “totally cute” Zack Efron and, of course, Nick and Joe Jonas.

I have found that stripes keep one from going in circles.

Hey folks, thanks so much for sharing your interpretations! Keep them coming. Some of these are very close to my own ideas. In any case I find it fascinating to see how people interpret an image, and the many different angles people have. I'm also glad this is not a self portrait :)
