Study In Colour, Light, Angles...... and a Flower


I usually take my camera with me everywhere I go. And I am glad I did this past Sunday.


We went to our favourite 'brunch' place called jane's on the common.


We were seated by a window with the sun pouring through.


I was struck by what I could see from my seat.


The all-red wall was transformed by the sun's rays into different colours,


creating geometric shapes and wonderful textures.


All these photos were untouched, with the exception of the first one I was playing with.....just to see.

  1. I just love red rooms. And that one is so vibrant. It never fails, the moment I don't take my camera with me, I miss amazing shots like yours above.

  2. Thanks for sharing these images. I love the art that's created this way. I used to get up in the middle of the night just to sketch the shadows being cast on my walls by the moonlight.

    1. Mitch, it must give you a satisfied feeling to be able to create something 'from scratch'......oh you artists are all alike! lol

  3. You are smart to take your camera everywhere. I've learned the hard way the importance of this. I love those colours, especially the orange. They are very bold, and they certainly promote a feeling of tremendous energy.

    1. Martha, that is exactly how we felt....energized! The colours were all- enveloping.

  4. These are great abstract photos.
    I'm drawn to the same kind of scenes...these are really wonderful.
    And...YES...to always having a camera with you.
    I've been doing that since 2007 when I first challenged
    myself to a Project365.
    I can't imagine leaving it behind (even when walking to the mailbox :)

  12. Wow, the shades are so intense and varied that it almost looks like it has folds in it.
