just blue


this photo by Nathan Bosic








Sorry for the blue overload people, but I am just drunk with love for blue. My photo library is bursting with it. It's moonlight, water, the sky, the eyes of my family, my mom, it's calming but dramatic. How fitting to begin and end this color week with my two favorites. If you drop by, let me know your favorite, or favorite of this series. This week of celebrating color has made me more vividly aware of every hue and shade of the rainbow. I can't help but feel like I left out some great ones like turquoise and purple and gray. Oh well, maybe I'll do those later. But for now enjoy the colors around you... drink in the beauty.

friday: orange






I've been having lots of fun with this whole color week thing. I must say I much prefer focusing on one color at a time as opposed to yesterday. Orange makes me think of fire and autumn and my favorite sweater which I wear pretty much every cold day of the year and Jen K. She seems to use a lot of orange in her art work, some of which you see above.

Color week- Monday: yellow
Tuesday: blue
Wednesday:green
Thursday:black,white,brown

wednesday green

<


.
I came upon a friend's (Cat) blog today that is doing some kind of week in color, celebrating a different color each day. Wednesday is green and I felt just so inspired I had to join in. I'm happy the world's not in black and white. I'm definitely a fan of color and how could I possibly pass up green? So here's to green in all it's lushness and vibrancy, it's serenity, it's spring and summer aliveness. Ah, beautiful green.

Summer nights

We were enjoying a lazy evening at my sisters house not too long ago, like so many I remember with hammocks and fireflies and kids damp and grubby from playing outside all day. Ella was sporting her new blue birthday Crocs from Mimi and when little Dove spotted them a battle of the miniature wood nymph fairies ensued.

They scurried around the grass, Ella with a one shoe limp, tossing back and forth adamant cries of "mine".


Dove-bird emerges victorious.


And Ella Bella makes a slow retreat.
