Go Green...

Moving on to green, today.

And going water-y. I love water abstracts (look through my flickr stream if you don't believe me), I'm fascinated by the range of colors and patterns.

So I found two rich green water-abstracts for my favorite color

(That light reflection on the glass is a shame, but the color from this aquarium is lovely)

Yellow, part 2

A bit more sunny yellow before I move on . . .

Chippy texture with the perfect blue accents

And another one...

The orange photos just keep coming in...

But this was one of my favorites of all the ones I looked at and thought about including, so we're doing orange again:

And, yes, that's dish soap.

The glowing colors, and the texture of the bubbles made me take a second look at the bottle on my own counter. And there's not much more I could ask from a photo.

They call me mellow yellow...

On to golden yellows:

And since my last posts were such soft, pretty shots, a more angular feel

A late addition to my orange post...

Better late than never, I guess

Ok, so now the red

I found some red I love, it's just after the orange...

Who cares about rainbow order

(Well, me, but for now I'll deal)

First, another close up of a tulip petal...photograph macro bright red flower

Red by Linda Scannell

And then I flipped through lots of red berries, red brick, red lava lamps, red cars to bring you ... (drumroll please)

... another red flower macro.

So, todays' post, not exactly diverse, but they are beautiful. I love the bold, glowing red -- with a very simple, minimal composition.

I'm tired of winter grays this week, so I went looking for some color and found myself drawn to bright, vibrant oranges.

(I thought I'd do red and maybe work my way through in rainbow order, but I just wasn't feeling red, a fact I'm blaming on a red and white sewing project I'm ready to be done with)

So, orange...

One of my favorite things about this one is that it's such a warm, lively color -- and it's titled "Rainy OH". There's something about the unexpected contrast that just appeals to my sense of whimsy.

Feeling constructive today...

A great shot of the scaffolding itself, from forestelf and a pile of scaffolding pieces of my own.

I really like the pairing of the two -- colors, subjects and the straight/round contrast -- so enjoy!

Sorry folks, final papers and the holidays got in the way of blogging for a while.

New Years always seems like a reflective sort of time with all the resolution-making and starting anew -- and, although it's not as poetic, I just stumbled across a reflection shot I really like.

So here are two reflective, reflections for you:
