I've been participating in Summer Colours Week over at the beautiful Poppytalk blog. They have set up a Flickr Group where you can upload your photos (a certain color every day) and in the evening they highlight their favorites on their blog. On pink day, my good friend Beth's photo was included (click here to see it on her blog). She is quite the photographer!
When I look at the photos uploaded to the Flickr group, I think that my photos don't fit in. Most photos taken are so dreamy and have that look that's all so popular now - slightly faded, more pastel than clear color, and a little aged. That just isn't me. I like clear colors and bright colors. So, last night I thought I'd just give up and not upload anything else for the rest of the colors.
But then, this morning, 123cabezas included one of my very colorful scarves in a very bright Etsy treasury.
If you click here, you can leave a comment if you want to! Such a nice boost this morning. So, now, I'm going to go upload my green images to the Summer Colours Flickr group!
Maybe I don't take photos that fit the most popular look, but I like them! And isn't that way more important than fitting in?!
P.S. Thank you all so much on your very enthusiastic comments on my latest painting. I am having so much fun with this and your support makes it even better!!
