Project Blue, Take Nine: Blue Madness

Today is day nine of Anna Carson's Project Blue. It started innocently enough. I got all excited because I realized that the kitty brush was blue. Blue is starting feel scarce, so this was good news. I thought, I'll try to be artsy with it to see if I can make it more interesting.... Angel helped with the first one (and several others). The third one isn't that good, but I like it anyway. Then I was looking for something and I found the ribbon. "Ribbon!" I thought. I have BLUE ribbon! So I took some pictures of the ribbon but they seemed boring, so I was trying to think of a way to make them interesting. I tried combining it with the brush but that wasn't that didn't really do anything for me. Then I thought I'll put Viviane's silk up... then I started adding things. Blue things. Some things I've taken before, some new. Soon they were all piled in a big disorderly heap of blue. They aren't good photos... and these are the best... but... they are blue. Blue, I tell you. That's all that matters... Must find blue. "Must photograph blue..." I was muttering as they carted me off...









My Project Blue posts include:

Blue Skies
Seldom Used Objects
A Box and Some Rocks

I love all your shades of blue and how you added more blue elements to the first idea! "Must photograph blue..." , lol, I know the feeling!!

(laughing) yes it does get addictive, I know what you mean!! These are great photos, little bits of everyday life all thrown in to one. 3 and 4 are my favourites, in that order, but i love the way you have taken the photos of the pile gradually getting bigger - well done. :0)

Great pictures.

Hey, stop by my blog...the last 2 days I've posted a true story about the first of my family to come to the west coast in the 1850's written by one of the family members.

I hope your back from being carted away. Don't worry, sounds like the color is changing tomorrow night then we can obsess on another hue...

The ribbon colors are a great compliment to the blues.

I really love the second one in this post, the cat shaped item laying down on the window sill at an angle. Interesting angle, good lighting, good clarity. Very nice shot.
