I was wandering the yard around this morning & found myself in a corner I don’t normally go to. There were quite a few of these fungi in various sizes and arrangements. Mother Nature amazes once again.
I can appreciate the beauty of mushrooms, I just wished they didn’t taste so terrible, not that this one is edible. That’s a general statement about mushrooms… blech
Having just returned from a weeklong trip touring some of our country’s greatest sights, I am still sorting through the almost 1500 photos I took. I posted daily highlights on facebook, but will post more and some of the daily stories here.
Today’s #365photo is a pretty holey leaf on the lawn when I took Coe out this evening.
Even being the word nerd I am, I never really bothered to figure out gray versus grey. When I write grey feels more natural to me; no idea why. Tonight I finally googled it and found, they really are interchangeable. Gray is more common in the United States, where grey is more common in the rest of the English speaking world.
Today was another one of those days where I had a plan for my #365project #photoaday and Mother Nature had other ideas. When I got home after a few unsatisfactory photo stops, I took Coe for a walk. It was on our evening stroll in the park where I finally found today’s color grey.
A few of the other photographers I follow make a plan and layout their 365 by month and year. I am feeling a little stifled by this self-imposed 24 pack of crayons, but I am also forcing myself to look for, and at, things I normally wouldn’t. It’s all about growth and creativity- whatever gets me there, right?!
It’s been quite some time since I have done my So Lonely series and had been thinking of revisiting it. I guess the Universe agreed.
Crayola’s new color that bumped Dandelion out of the 24 box, is a dark blue quite similar to these flowers. I think as much of the new name of this shade of blue, as I do this lovely arrangement.
Another hideous, loud display drew me into the store, but when I saw this blue beauty, I couldn’t resist. I spent a few minutes wandering around thinking this really is the ugliest store I have ever been in. Can you picture this in your home?
You’d better not answer that, it might make me think less of you 😉
The thing about social media is finding ways for all your different mediums to talk to one another. I’m not always very good at that. I have been doing my #365project #photoaday, but what I haven’t done is taken is taken the time to post it over here.
Here’s my recap of the last few days… and since I know fb won’t bring all my pics over here, please click the link to see what I’ve been up to.
Friday was the dandelion. Since dandelion was the most recent Crayola crayon to retire, I decided to start there. I snapped this mid-morning with my iphone, and when I went back with my camera, it had closed up for the day. If you click to view it larger, you can see these neat little curly petals.
Friday was the white, blanco, blanc crayon, like the spring blossoms on the dogwoods. The trees are blooming right now and we enjoyed a beautiful spring day. The roller coaster weather continues though and we are going to have a few upcoming evenings dropping below freezing.
A box of 24 crayons has a seemingly disproportionate number of blue, especially with them just adding a new blue. Upon first glance I have 4 identical blue crayons; but as soon as you color with them you see the difference is pretty vast.
We had another beautiful spring day on Sunday. Everyone was wearing shorts and out in the park. The sky was a gorgeous blue dotted with perfect white clouds. I love the contrast to the dark trees.
Today is brown. I started the day off with what I thought was going to be today’s color. Box in hand, I drove to and from work, eyes open for something interesting. The color I planned was tossed out the window when I spied something I hadn’t considered.
Germantown, Tennessee is all about their horses. There are horse sculptures all over town, painted an array of colors. I wasn’t expecting to find one that was a nice normal brown.
I warmed up the photo using snapseed. Don’t ask me my settings bc, honestly I have no clue. Filters are not my strength. I just play with them until I get an image and coloring I like.
I liked getting the sky to glow behind him. I also like how the lights from the shop direct your eyes to him.
Here’s to hoping you have a colorful week!
The month of March is all about green, so for #365project I am going to focus on all the colors.
I got a box of 24 Crayola with the “New Bluetiful.” When I compared the previous box of 24 to the new box, it appears a shade of yellow got bumped.
Since March clearly has more than 24 days I’m going to do a little research to find out what other colors have gotten the heave-ho and use that to fill the rest of the month. That, or just post whatever fabulous color catches my eye.
