Spots of Colour

This week Ann-Christine gave us the prompt Spots and Dots for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I had a couple of ideas for the prompt before going for a walk on Sunday afternoon. The actual purpose of the walk was to continue my testing of the TTArtisan 35mm lens. But lens testing was quickly forgotten when I started looking for spots of colour.

Lens-Artists: Spots of Colour

Spots of Yellow. Having finally had a couple of days of spring like weather the Dandelions have emerged in force. It was the yellow flowers in the grass that gave me the idea for this post.

Spots of Green. Next I found these green leaves growing through the soil. I think they’re the leaves of Lily-of-the-valley.

Spots of Blue. Technically Periwinkle blue is a pastel purple. These Periwinkle flowers were the next spots of colour I spotted.

Spots of White. The final spots of colour I spotted were these White Trilliums. The provincial flower of Ontario and regarded as a sign of spring.

Blue and White

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Pick a Topic from my Photo prompt.

I went with a mix of topics, tree, blue, sky and cloud. I liked the way the Paper Birch trees stood out against a blue sky. We haven’t seen much blue sky this winter and until a few days ago these Paper Birch trees were inaccessible due to the snow in places.

Blowing Bubbles

This is my contribution to Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Blow Bubbles.

An art school project from the late 1970s. I had two fellow students blowing bubbles and we were popping any that weren’t the right size or location.

CFFC: White and Green

This is my contribution to week 3 of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pick a Topic from this Photo. This week I picked two of the colours highlight by Cee in the prompt that accompanied the week 3 photo. Yes, I know white isn’t technically a colour.

To make it more of difficult I made a rule that the photos I picked had to have been taken in the past year, actually 10 months as I was in rehab until the end of May after my accident. Plus, all photos had to be vertical orientation.
