Hey, remember those diptychs?

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a diptych. I’m feeling pretty blah about this here blog and spend most of my time at my photoblog or on Flickr these days. Apparently multitasking is not my forte. I get overwhelmed with all the places on the Internet I visit regularly and this here blog has suffered. Sometimes I think about taking it down altogether, but what if I want to come back? So, posting will continue to be sporadic until I figure out what I want to do with this site.

OK. Enough rambling. Here’s this week’s diptych: colors.

Overheard at Bridge Club

So I says to him, “OK Ernie,” I says, “you go play 9 holes with Ralph, but don’t you come cryin’ to me when your sciatica acts up.” So he goes and plays. And guess where he is now? Flat on his back with his feet propped up by a pillow, watchin’ Judge Judy. I tell you Agnes, they never listen!

Diptych #8 – Adorable

Because we’re done with the rainbow, Saj and I had to think of a new subject for our weekly diptych. Now we’ll be photographing our own interpretation of words. This week I chose the word adorable because when I went to my phone to text Saj about the new diptych theme, I noticed in our text conversation on my iPhone that the last word she texted me was adorable (in reference to a photo I sent her of Penny).

As you can see, she and I are on the same wavelength again – Matte’s birthday.

Here is Saj’s adorable photo:

Matte and I got some cool new lighting equipment so Matte consulted Strobist to find out how I could best set up this shot of someone I find most adorable:
60/365 - Happy Birthday, Matte!

Next week it’s Saj’s turn to pick the word. Stay tuned!

Diptych #6 – Indigo

In case you’re just joining us, my sister-in-law Sarah (Saj) and I are shooting a photo a day this year, and for extra motivation, we’re doing diptychs every week. Great minds really do think alike, as you can see below. (I swear we didn’t call each other!)

This week in the ROYGBIV spectrum, we say hello to Indigo.

First up, Saj’s take:
46/365 Indigo

And mine:
46/365 - Indigo

If you’re interested in seeing the rest of the 365 project, Saj’s photos are here. Mine are here.

Next week is violet and then we need to think of some new assignments. Feel free to offer suggestions in the comments!

Diptych #5: Blue

In our fifth installment of the diptych project, we visit blue.

First, blue from Saj with bonus blue in Caden’s eyes. How cute is HE?

My take on blue is Matte’s favorite hat:

Next week is indigo. Can someone tell me the difference between indigo and blue? Thanks.
