C and C photo assignment: color story

Good morning! It's Saturday! You know what that means...no, not sleeping in. It's time for assignment 3 of the Spring C and C photography workshop.

The assignment was to pick a color and tell a story with it, either visually, or with words. I picked green...I wanted to do pink...I had a whole story in my head with pink; I ended up with green. I think it was the walks along a local creek that swayed me toward green...all those ferns!

I couldn't help myself, I had to pop this image into b&w just to see what would happen...I love color, but sometimes a little silence after a busy week is welcomed.

Please go check out the C and C community, as I'm sure there will be many delights for the eyes if you follow the links here.

Happy Saturday! xo

Your images are gorgeous. When I look at them they look like they should hang in a museum. Wow, I just love the marble shots.

Sooooo pretty. Love the fiddleheads, peonies (gorgeous color), asparagus...all such worthy subjects. I can see we share a fern-love.

Oh wow, love your photos and green, so beautiful. The photos of the ferns are amazing, the marble photos are great too and wow the green ball off centre one...

maccandace said...

Ohhhh, wow. I love 'em, especially the series of marbles in the glass jar, too beautiful. I also like the green ball on the post. So creative and pretty.

Erin Wallace said...

These are beautiful! How lucky you are to have fiddle heads to photograph - they are amazing. The marbles are full of light. And I love that sort of askew asparagus photo. Great series!

Linda said...

All beautiful images. I do like the marbles and I too felt like I needed balck and white after taking my colour pictures!

lucy said...

both the ferns and marbles are so lovely -- you''ve capatured their essential "ferniness" and "marbleness" really well. the two diptych's are my favorites.

magpie said...

Love your color story Gail..beautiful colors you chose. The marbles are very creative...beautiful light and composition on these.
Very inspiring.

Carolyn Parker said...

I was hoping someone would do pink-- you did anyway. The green and pink diptych kills me. Those pretty marble pics w the unexpected black and the gorgeous blurs-- yum. Love the black (grey) and white-- so soft. I need to get out my marbles, yes, I have marbles too. Lovely work Gail.

magical ferns. you are so lucky to have them near you! so many shades of green you found.....the bright globe of to the right side of the fame is the best. it's like a planet, or a moonrise, with the earth's landscape behind. i really like that. and i love pink too! i almost picked pink, but you gotta listen to what catches your eye when you have the camera.

Yvonne said...

The ferns are gorgeous, love your clse-ups! And the asparagus - the hint of purple to go with the green is beautiful. The marbles and the glass jar, and the different focal points! I love the last one of the glass ball - on top of the mossy wood against the blue & white sky! Magic, it makes me think of wizards & wise women :)

the green is so soothing and fresh here...great story telling...

Paul Barden said...

The soft celadon greens of the marbles are a delight, as is the lavender bloom contrasting with the soft greens. Very delicate and sumptuous color!

Jane said...

Wonderful choice of photos! The second to last is just beautiful!

Clare B said...

What a beautiful salute to spring. I love your first set of photos with the fern unfurling. Lovely! And the purple constrasting flower is equally stunning.

Allison said...

Those marbles just make for lovely pictures. You take such wonderful photos. And thanks for the eye candy link!

Earth Mama said...

Oh, I love the marble pics. Something about the smoothness of the glass jar and marbles against the rough textured wood makes me love it.

beautiful inspiration. we went hiking last week and i didn't have my camera and was disappointed because the fiddleheads were everywhere. really enjoyed those photos! and the orb on the moss - i like the skewed angle. nice work!

Rani said...

sigh. my favorite color. Fills me with peace and calm.

I have one tiny, fragile asparagus spear in my garden. I feel like building a shrine around it.
