Project Yellow: Take 2...part deux


"Dusty Strum"
2008

I felt the need to post another shot for "Project Yellow" today. I now have camera power (AKA: digital batteries WITH backup) and hope not to have to dig back in the archives for photos (for now anyway.) On my way to CVS to pick up the batteries, I was REALLY aware of how little the color yellow shows up on a pre-spring day in the Midwest. Amazes me how much a small project like this can make you view things differently. In general, I'm a black and white photographer; meaning I look at shots as light and dark, not necessarily as colorful. An activity such as this is really opening my eyes to other details around me. People don't do enough of that, in my humble opinion.

*Note: Now that I look at this picture - I'm not sure the guitar is really "yellow." But...it will have to do :)

I love this picture. I love how you got in tight. The combination of the lines, circles, angles, and color all make it work for me. Plus, you make me miss my guitar. I blame (just so I have an excuse) my friend that borrowed but truth be told, I have not played since long before he borrowed it. Maybe it's time to get it back. Anyhow, great image!
