I never realized how much I must like blue until I began to gather some objects for my photo shoot. As I began gathering, I realized that these were some of my very favorite decorations around our house. Since our Magnolia tree is now in bloom, I added a few of the blossoms to some of the shots. I like the contrast they create and the way that they "break up" all that blue.
I took a gazillion pictures. Rather than bore ya'll to death by listing them separately, I stole an idea from someone else, who a week or so ago presented a collage. (I apologize to whoever did this first, but your idea was just too good to pass up.) I wanted to achieve two very different feels to the two collages. I wanted the first collage at the top of the page to feel serene and to have a simple elegance about it. I wanted the one below to have a more down-home country feel. I had a lot of fun playing with and combining the photos until I thought they had the "feeling" that I was trying to convey.
This last shot was from my photo archives. It was taken in January of 2009. I included it because I love the shade of the blue sky and the play of the lights.
We're all just amateurs who are trying to improve our photo skills, and we would love for you to add your pics to ours.
