Wow! It's day six of Anna Carson's Project Black.
Today I have just been unabashedly silly. I was looking for a nice way to photograph this little akua'ba that my niece Diana gave to me a few years back. Many years ago, when the world was young, I worked at the Museum of Natural History in Manhattan. I feel in love with an Akua'ba replica necklace at the museum gift shop and wore it almost all the time. My sister's kids, who were very young, loved it, so I got each of them a larger plastic one. It's a precious memory for me and I guess for at least one of them. I love this one. I always feel like he's sending me a big hug from Diana. So anyway, I was looking for a way to let the little guy shine and I put him in front of the screen in front of the lily photo at the bottom and the rest, as they say, is history. I couldn't stop - there are actually more than the eight posted here. Each of the pictures in Akua'ba's tour has some black in it (the stamens of the lily are black even if you can't actually tell from the picture). Not great art, but I had fun and hope Akua'ba and I have made you chuckle at least.
