Today I decided to have a little fun and focus on three colors to photograph: red, green and blue. This theme comes courtesy of David Perry’s recent assignment to pick one of the three colors and make a picture that features the color. Restraint is not exactly one of my strong suits, so I decided to do all three, since everywhere I looked yesterday it seemed one or more of the colors was leaping out at me.
First there was this lonely red bougainvillea bract, a solo bloom standing out on this mostly-bare plant from my basement fluorescent light garden:
Then there was this green, extra curled parsley I snipped to go in our chicken soup:
Finally, my breakfast blueberries wound up in this photo featuring the color blue, which also used another of David Perry’s assignments (Macro in a Mason Jar):
For this last photo I put the Mason jar on a blue dustpan to give a little blue tint to the glass and to lighten up the dark blueberries a bit:
