Diptych #3: And it was all yellow

This wek in the ROYGBIV spectrum, we visit yellow.

First, Saj give us a Hungry Hippo with some killer bokeh:
25/365 Hungry?

Below is my shot for yellow. Note to anyone reading this lives within driving distance of my house: if you need lemons, please let me know. The tree in our backyard went crazy with fruit, giving us over 300 lemons. I’m not joking. I could sell lemonade on the corner for 5 years.
22/365 - When Life Hands You Lemons

Next week is green. Maybe I’ll shoot all the money I make at my lemonade stand.

Diptych from WI and CA

I must admit I stole this idea. But I told Finn I was stealing it. You know what they say about imitation being the highest form of flattery. If you haven’t seen Finn’s photos, go take a look – I’ll wait. See? She’s the shizz. (Are the kids still saying that?) When I saw the new diptych project she embarked upon with Ren, well, I knew just who to ask to join me – my sister-in-law Saj. She and I are both doing Project 365 this year and plan to will be taking one photo a day for the ENTIRE YEAR. I figured we can use all the direction and motivation we can get so I suggested to Saj we do the colors of the rainbow like Finn and Ren are.

Do you know how many red things there are in the world? Lots. I was just about to grab my cute little tomatoes off the counter when I spotted something red in a cabinet.

Here is the first diptych in a series of 52 (crosses fingers). Come back every Tuesday for more sparks of creativity.

Saj’s (great minds think alike):
11/365 Tomatoes

Day 11/365 - Red

Next week: orange.

I’ve made it FIVE whole days already!

Yay, me! Seriously though, this Project 365 has rekindled my love for photography, much like the way the 7 Days group does. Yeah, I know it’s only been five days and I might bet bored by day, oh…8, but for now I am enjoying it. Today I shot something I use every single day, but never though to take a photo of it. This project is already making me look at things differently.

This is the mug I use at work every day. Isn’t it cute? It’s one of the first gifts I ever got from Matte. Inside the mug is jasmine green tea – my absolute favorite. Good Earth makes the best, in my opinion. Sorry, Joe the Trader, this time you don’t win.
