Foto Friday – Color Your World, Week One #cyw

In an attempt to stretch my photography skills, I have signed up for the “Color Your World” Photography Challenge from Tourmaline. Every day for 120 days, a new color from the Crayola color palette will be the featured challenge. I am opting to post all the colors for the week in one post. Here are my photos for the week one colors:

1. Bluetiful (YlnMn blue) – a great piece of art from my pal Beach (go see his photos!)

2. Almond – I know, I know LAZY!

3. Mahogany -My Nana’s hope chest brought over from Scotland in 1923. (It’s pine, not mahogany)

4. Shocking pink – this might not quite match the Crayola color but the sky at sunset was so amazing, I pulled over on the side of the road to get the shot with my phone!

5. Indigo – the sky, not the berries in the foreground.

6. White – my resurrected orchid!

    1. I had every intention of moving her to the poolside and I liked her so much and didn’t want to put her out in the weather so she stayed in the living room. We actually just painted the walls a ‘beach house’ blue so she matches even better! 😃💙😃

      1. Perfect! Yeah, we put a coat of poly on her before sending your way, but if outside, the caps would still begin to rust. I like that look, but if you want the colors to stay true, inside is the way to go. 😃

      2. So she stays! And somehow she got a name today from a couple of other commenters! Florrie the fish. Which is pretty hilarious because Florrie was my mother-in-law’s name. 😲

    1. Thank you! I didn’t realize it could be anything other than photos. I might mix it up a little if I run out of subject matter to photograph!


      1. I completely understand. I have set limits on the amount of posting I do. I was posting every day and it began to feel like a job. So I’ve reduced to 2-3 times a week so I can concentrate on my next novel!


      2. That’s a great plan. Gives to lots of time to focus on the ‘award winning’ work 😋
        I’m hoping to reduce my output too but right now I need to wake up myself and my followers… tell everyone that im back. January will be busy but I’m hoping to drop down to a 2-3 post per week and fill in the other days on instagram.

      3. Tis a shame but I quite like managing them differently.
        It lends to doing something else in another medium and keeps the same creative poetics.
        I don’t use instagram as much but I do enjoy it. There’s very little cross channel stuff so it’s almost like having two audiences… for now atleast.

    1. It looks like Florrie is her new name! Ha! The clock story… it isn’t antique or anything but I had to find one that didn’t ‘tick’ loudly or else it will keep me awake at night!
