Blue is the colour...

Shayne:
I decided on the theme 'blue' for two reasons.  One, the books i used in last weeks pic were blue, and also, because I knew that Cat was in CT for the weekend and would definately come back armed with 'blue' pics.  My photo was taken last week when we visited our local Lion Park.  After feeding all the animals the kids hit the play area, and i just sat on the grass and snapped away.  I'm slowly learning to use settings other than 'auto' and also that taking photos in the early morning and early evening are definately ones with more 'feel' to them.  I just love how the light from the setting sun is catching my daughters face, clothes and her hair.  everything seems to be bathing in golden light and it is just so soft.  Of course, the absolute look of joy on her face just tugs at my heart!
Mine:
When Shayne came up with the theme "blue" for this week, I was absolutely delighted. What better theme for Cape Town where I was spending the extended weekend. I literally have about 50 pictures I can use, but this one won because I love how the reds make the blues look even more vibrantly blue. This is a fishing boat in the Houtbaai harbour - taken on Friday morning on a cold and breezy morning walk

For more team - ups, go visit Corey's to see who else are participating.

  1. The light on Shayne's daughter's face is awesome. The blues on that boat sure do come through :)

  2. I love both these photos Cat, such different but such accurate interpretations of the theme - your photo not only represents blue to me, but summer and fresh air as well. Great job!
