So I decided that this week I’d embark on a different type of photography challenge: Seven days with seven different colors. Most of the pictures are nature shots that I managed to get around the yard, with a pet photograph tossed in to mix things up a little.
Day 1: The color chosen was more of a gray-blue color. The photograph was of a tiny little mushroom growing in the compost heap next to a flower box in the back yard. There were several of these little fungi growing.
Day 2: The color today was green. There was a little nymph of a true bug crawling around on the patio table in the backyard.
There are a lot of bugs in the yard this year (mainly ants and flies, but then there are some interesting ones like this little guy).
Day 3: The color today was black. The winner of the photograph challenge for the day was Pancakes. I don’t think she was happy to hear that Magnet was coming back for a visit.
Also what is a week without getting at least one picture of one of the animals.
Day 4: The color today was off-white with a tinge of red. A fluffy feather was found in the backyard around the patio. Obviously some young bird was going through a molting period (or had met an untimely fate). Though you really can’t see the tinge of red all that well with the red tile background.
Day 5: The color today was yellow. There was another sunflower growing in the backyard in the protection of a tomato cage around the choke cherry bush.
Day 6: The color today was purple. The wisteria is finally starting to flower again. There had been some blossoms earlier in the spring, but the late killing freezes had done a number on the buds. At least there are still some signs of spring/summer flowers around.
Day 7: The color for today was pink. The crepe myrtles in the back yard are starting to flower. There is one that has very pale pink flowers on it (couldn’t get a picture because the bush/tree is over 9 feet tall and my arms just aren’t that long), there is another that has more reddish pink flowers (but it hasn’t started to flower due to be in a more shaded area of the yard), and the last one has nice deep pink flowers.
I’m thinking that my next little photography challenge will still be something natured based, possibly a mixture again of colors, textures, shapes, or different natural aspects.
