I'm new to blogging...at it about a month now. After I post something I often take time to push the "next blog" button to see what others are doing and often I'm amazed. Yesterday I happened upon a blog called randomness, with a small r. I loved it and it made me wish my brain thinks like hers. That's when copying and ripping off what you like comes into play.
Her idea, which I think she may have borrowed from someone else, was to focus on a different color palate each day this week. Tuesday had been blue and today was yellow/orange day. I was immediately struck by this idea and announced to myself..."I could make it yellow/orange day as well." Whereas her photos are artistic and beautiful, mine seem rather ordinary, but hey....I'm a musician, not a visual artist...I have excuses for mundane photograph subjects. So today I went searching for yellow and orange.
First thing this morning while getting my cup o' Joe I noticed this splash of color in my dish drainer. I love this mug with all it's cheerful colors and the scissors surprised me-an ordinary item that I rarely give thought to its pleasing hue.
I met my best friend at lunch time and noted these luscious lemon poppy seed muffins in the bakery case....but I was good and didn't have one.
These small yellow bumper stickers are showing up all over town. "Don't tread on me" was a flag from back in revolutionary times. Politics....a very odd thing. Someone always has themselves all worked up over something the other guys are doing. I steer clear of the whole mess.
Beautiful pansies for sale at the locale garden center. Not many customers today in the rainy weather.
I saw lots and lots and lots of construction equipment today. I could have taken 20 different photos of similar vehicles. Most were parked and unattended....I guess rainy days give the workers a day off.
When I turned around....I spotted this beautiful orange door.
Dinner on the run.
This was my favorite yellow that I found today. I spotted these neon eye glasses way down the street and had to pull over to snap my photo. Very cool.
My last yellow for the day.... I found when I walked into dress rehearsal. My director uses post-it notes to help her remember anything important she needs to tell the chorus or add to her rehearsal. Apparently many things are important!
I loved doing this today....it kept my black mood in check and helped me create sunny thoughts on a rainy day. I think I'll do it again tomorrow....I wonder what the color for Thursday is.
