Weekly Photo Challenge – The Hue of You

Calla Lines

Calla Lines

Our challenge is to post a shot that reflects our understanding of color. No surprise that I would choose one of my studio floral shots. I love the simple lines and elegant curves of the Calla Lilly and the pink, green and white evokes a sense of soft silk on a spring evening. What comes into your awareness as you experience these hues?

    Hi Cathy, Since I’m a watercoloist, I look at your beautiful photo as a painting.

  9. What comes to my mind is the subtlety of color, the gradual change of it in this flower. But, overall, I take the whole flower in at once! Beautiful, Cathy!

  15. Eureka, I received this post in my email. I feel like I have run a marathon trying to reactive my following of your blog … As always, another gorgeous and sophisticated take on nature Cathy. But Shirley, you jest when you ask what comes into MY awareness as I experience these hues? But I will tell you. Big Stick Popsicles: http://bit.ly/17T2ErJ The colors just made me think of this frozen treat that was sold at my school for a dime “back in the day”. My mother would not allow me to eat one because she was certain that while wielding it, I would run like a maniac, trip, somehow fall on it and poke my eye out of the socket. I was okay with her paranoia. I preferred Fudgsicles. Back to your image, that is one eye-catching Calla Lily. If Mom was still of this earth, she definitely would approve.

      Eureka is right! Man, that was painful! My question is, would your mom let you eat Fudgsicles but not Big Stick Popsicles? Is that because the stick was bigger? But I agree with you, I’m a Fudgsicle girl, too. And thank you, V. Both for your kind words and for sharing your take on the colors in the lily. I’m glad they brought up a fun memory (of Fudgsicles at least).
