Pillow from Target
Some of you have noticed and asked about my abandoning the 365 Photo Challenge that I took on in 2013. Unfortunately, after 7 months of faithful picture taking, an eye condition kept me from being able to focus well enough to continue. Thankfully, my eyes are better now and since I've missed the accountability that the challenge offered in learning to become a better photographer, I'm back again for the new year with another photography challenge.
This challenge is one that I just made up for myself and I'm calling it The Color Photo Challenge. Today is the first installment for January. The plan is for me to do two installments each month for a total of 16 photographs based on a different color each month. Every month I will be using the same 16 words for my photo prompts.
So, here goes..... The color of the month is grey. Everywhere I look it seems grey here in the wintry Midwest USA.
QUILT: If you are reading my blog to see quilty photos, here's fair warning that you can look away after this first picture of my most recent finish! Sorry.
DOOR: I love the weathered wood on this shed door. The window circles look to be made from the base of old bottles. Cool, huh!
HOME: My daughter's lovely home decor features a new sofa in a beautiful shade of medium grey.
OLD: Did you know that I adore chippy paint like this?
TWO: Santa brought me new grey suede boots for Christmas!
CREATURE: My outdoor kitty, Marble, sneaks in for a warm cat nap whenever she can this time of year.
DINE: These dishes belonged to my mother and were purchased, one piece at a time, from the grocery store in the 1970's. Aren't they sweet?
WHIMSY: I'll end like I began, with something hand made. I love the contrast of the weathered wood frame next to the carefully cross-stitched sampler. Sure wish I could say that I made it myself!
If you've read this far; Thank you. You are a real friend! Maybe you'll even be interested in the next set of photographs which I plan to post at the end of the month. What's grey in your world?
Enjoy your weekend!
