Cee’s instructions for this week’s challenge are to show off photos that make her need to put on her sunglasses indoors. This gallery contains the photos that I think fit that fun challenge! (The butterfly photo that I use for my gravatar was taken by my friend Sarah Corlett.)

Justine’s challenge for this week was to present a photo, quote or poem representing “Splash of Color.” I decided to use a photo of the Fremont troll, which is a gigantic sculpture located under the Aurora Bridge in Seattle.

Years ago, a family in my neighborhood added a futuristic addition to their existing house. I decided it would make a good subject for this assignment.
Train your eye to look for architectural elements that translate in black and white: sharp lines and patterns, defined shapes, large surface areas, and a mix of very light and very dark colors. Compare the color and monochrome versions of today’s shot.
I took photos of four different angles of the house and used a variety of effects to make them monochrome. Below you will see them in color, black and white and sepia followed by a slide show of them with the Holga effect.
Black and White
And here are the four pictures in Holga.
I took photos of one other house that seems very futuristic, especially since it is located in my neighborhood of 60 to 100 year old homes. It has probably been here about 20 years by now!

In July, I wrote a post about all of the red cars that line the street where I live. When I went outside looking for color today, it was red that popped out amidst the muted late autumn colors.
