#99 Purple abstract

A cropped version of another shot, an accident that appealed to me. I like its impresionistic look. Last day for purple!!!

#97 Bubbles?

Found this cut glass tumbler in the middle of a great purple display at a home accesories store. Crazy, right? Three more days...

#96 Focus on purple

Inspired and willing to give it a try. It is always interesting to work a composition from begining to end. I have to confess I rather spy with my little eye what is already out there.

#92 Empty

I have good news and bad news... On the good news front, I passed my Italian driver's license test! WooHoo! The percentage of fails is high, really high... I am so HAPPY, soon I will be able to drive again!
The bad news? I am still sick, and coughing non stop... Maybe the stress of the test was helping the little germs? Don't they know I am strong?
All this to tell you that I frantically searched for something purple to photograph today, and these are what I found... straws...
Comments?
February 20 update: I have been featured at the Shutter Sisters Website!

#91 Still purple

I am still sick, luckily for me my garden had some purple hiding in the memories of Summers past. Still beautiful, don't you think?

#90 Crystal

Clearly a close-up of a crystal. I like how it looks like a mountain range. Purple, evasive purple...
I have been sick and I have not ventured out of the house, so you will have to forgive me my lack of creativity.

#88 On table

Got a lonely tulip to use as prop. I am enjoying purple a little more today, but I still have 18 more days to go... I guess spring will arrive early at my home.

#87 Pieces

What easier way to find purple than to take a sneak peek into my studio. I have not used pastels in a while. It was time they saw the light of day!

#86 It is an insect!

It is pretty lonely at 365 Days in Color. I think purple in February was not the best idea... I will keep on, as I find that a challenge like this tickles my creativity... Who knows what I will come up with next?
Talking about creative minds, this is a close-up of a papier mache insect! One of the 4 year olds in my art class made it. Those bits of paper? Legs, of course!

#84 It is cold!

Another staged image... maybe I will do a series of the little guy in different places... what do you think? Will it be cheating? I have a cold, and no desire to look for purple tomorrow... maybe I'll get inspired...

#83 Hibernating

I battled the elements to get this shot! Well, I just walked to my neighbor's front yard because I knew there was this little bit of purple waiting for me.

#82 Marbles

Purple is elusive at best. I went against my nature and "staged" a picture. I like the result. Next time I won't clean the viewfinder, I like the little bits of dust in the image.

#81 Found purple

Purple is an elusive color. It was a true surprise when I found it hiding at the base of an old building. Where will it take me next?

This is going to be a challenge. February's color is PURPLE! I see a little bit of purple on this, don't you?
