OK, dear readers. Karma, over at her blog, has posted a new photo challenge. It’s called “Colors of Your World.” She requests that we find a color we love, to which we’re drawn. We’re urged to share our photos celebrating this color.
One of the names the Ojibway called me was “Rainbow Woman”.
It’s indicative, dear reader, that I could never–ever–pick a favorite color. Unless it was ALL colors.
My favorite color is–ROYGBIV. You know what this is, right? Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet. The whole spectrum. Add white and black. Tan and brown. Whatever other color that exists. They’re all my favorite.
On the way into town yesterday–headed toward a delightful evening which included the play Fiddler on the Roof–I listened to a segment on The Splendid Table on National Public Radio. Someone tried a ROYGBIV diet! Can you imagine? One day she (and her friend) ate only red. The next day, orange. Then, yellow. The day she ate only green she thought she’d died and gone to heaven.
These pics are from our trip to Marquette last Thursday. You, surely, remember the post I wrote there. I’ve bought a new Point and Shoot Camera (another Sony CyberShot) and, gosh, my friends, I had the best time–since the last itty bitty camera died–just pointing and shooting in ordinary settings.
It was SO fun! We were sitting there eating at the Vierling and the restaurant was mostly empty, as we dined mid-afternoon. I shot to the left! To the right! Up! Down!
Barry rolled his eyes.
I was having so much photographic fun you wouldn’t believe it!
Barry said, “Put the camera down! C’mon, Kathy, it’s time to eat!”
I LOVE inconspicuous cameras! Even though the “big girl cameras”–like my Canon Rebel–can take so much sharper and clearer photos, gosh, this little baby rocks.
I adore her. I adore how I feel when I’m aiming and snapping in every direction. And no one notices!
So these are my colorful entries for Karma’s photo challenge. Spur-of-the-moment incognito photos…
It’s fun to be enjoying photography again. Have been alternating photos from the new baby Sony CyberShot and the Canon Rebel in this blog during the last few weeks. Wondering if you can tell which pics come from which camera.
Even at WalMart the camera was looking for color. Red, blue, violet! Oh, this is so much better than the black and white snowy world in which we live these April days.
Even at Starbucks, my incognito camera was snapping, snapping, looking for unusual angles and color. Any color. Any color but snow color.
Going to be busy this week, so wanted to get this post in now. Don’t know when I’ll have time to post again for a few days. Do scurry over to Karma’s blog and participate if you’re interested. If not, at least enjoy the color in your world!
Have YOU got a favorite color?
