Decided to involve myself in Bella Cirovic's "52 Photo Project", where she supplies a prompt weekly for our photography! This gives me a reason to use my camera and carry and keep it with me!
This weeks prompt was "aqua"; now the high mountain desert isn't the most idea place to find aqua, lots of brown . . . but then, in northern New Mexico you see so many old homes with a color that is called locally, "ojo de Dios", the Eye of God. While not quite aqua, the color has a strong aqua tint, that the natives use to paint their windows and doors in to protect their homes. Couldn't find a window without jumping a wall, but did find this . . . not quite native with the purple trim, but a sorta, kinda, aqua!
|Ojo de Dios|
I'll have to admit, I was in a panic thinking, "aqua, aqua, aqua", when I pulled out an old batik wrap that is 15 years old or better, and has been used for anything and everything, but never a wrap! The flash of the camera brought out the "gentle patina" of the fabric . . . but there was aqua!
I won't know until Sunday what the new prompt is, but I'm excited and looking forward to participating!
PS: Both photo's have texture overlays: Ojo de Dios has Nancy Donaldson's "ecaustic background" and Kim Klassen's 'autumn burst"; the Batik has an overlay of Kim's "subtly yours".
