Theme Thursday: Purple

Posted on Thursday, April 29th, 2004

Dave!Every morning on the way to work I drive by a lilac bush that's stuck in a ditch. Despite her less than ideal location, she's a beautiful vision in purple that transcends her humble roots. It's a rather excellent metaphor for life I think.

TT: Purple

TT: Purple

Well, an excellent metaphor if you are Prince or Harold.

    The second shot in particular is great for me. I love the dots of yellow against the purple. Maybe under-exposing some and upping the saturation would make it even more striking.

    I love lilacs! I can almost smell them in those pictures.

  3. kara says:

    Great close up! And yeah I can smell lilacs…

    Like another TT pic, I think these look so much like they are made of candy!

    My camera is still fairly new, and I’m not sure exactly how to use it all yet… I thought it was an excellent suggestion to go back to the lilacs and give it another go with different exposures. Alas, the blooms are already turning brown, so I guess I’m stuck with what I’ve got.
