Autism Awareness

Oh whether to choose the photography category or the painting one. In the end photography wins because there is no conceptual category for paintings...hmmph.

The puzzle pattern reflects the mystery and complexity of autism. The different shapes and colours represents the diversity of people and families living with this disorder. The brightness signals hope.

***Note: I did not create the concept of the puzzle pieces representing autism awareness, i merely captured it. I hope i didn't confuse anyone.***

I've got a nephew with a form of Autism...... he is a good artist himself and I don't get to see if very often.  I'm going to share this photo on my Facebook page because his birthday is in May.

Hi! I'm sorry to ask you this, but I wanted your permission to use your image for a presentation about Autism... it's for school, I promise I'm not getting any profit with it, I just want people to be aware of autism.
Of course I'm gonna credit you!

Autism is no mystery, I debunked it. You can all thank me later.

Hi, I just love your work. I'm a starting psychologist working with autistic people and building my website. Will it be possible to use it in my website? with your name/nickname and link to the site of-course!

This is wonderful in its simplicity, and you convey the message quite well :)

Would it be acceptable for me to use this in making a logo for my Asperger's-related blog? Of the many representations out there, this one caught my eye,.
