"Yellow is the color of my true love's hair, in the morning, when we rise. In the morning, when we rise. That's the time. That's the time. I love her best." ~Donovan
I keep singing this song over and over out loud...all throughout the house...all throughout the day. I keep seeing yellow, everywhere. If ever there were a color that gave me some good therapy, it would be this one. There is something about yellow that lifts me up just like the sun in the early hours of the morning. So having it pop out all around me has been quite a treat. It is as if I have yellow tunnel vision...and I am enjoying my narrowed focus tremendously.
I've decided that for the next few posts...not only will I share a picture, but it will be one that has something to do with this matured affection I have for the color yellow. Yellow may play a small role in the picture, or, it might selfishly consume the majority of the frame. No matter how, it will be included. I don't know for how long my consciousness will be drifting towards this color, and so I want to document it as much as I possibly can. For the past few days, I have done an obsessively good job at doing just that. I figure that by giving myself these short, open challenges...I am doing myself a favor in getting practice with my camera. I am starting to feel more and more comfortable snapping away with different subjects. I imagine that it takes quite a while to feel confident within the realm of photography...but maybe someday that confidence will come. And if it ever does, then it will be on to learning about how to maneuver through photo shop...(because, well, although I am drawn to the bare naked reality of pictures...I'm sure that my photos could use a little cosmetic surgery). For now, photo shop is way too intimidating. Learning how to add text to the pictures I put on the web would have been confusing enough had I not been blessed by a few angels who are familiar with the world of photography. Me, I am not as familiar as I would like to be. But nevertheless...it really serves a purpose in my life as an escape. And...I suppose I will just keep posting imperfect yellow pictures until I start singing a different song.
*This little one could use some sweet thoughts and love...and lots of yellow sunshine, as he is struggling very uncomfortably through a severe case of a stiff neck.*
