When I was younger, I wondered how it would feel like to touch the clouds. I sometimes day dreamed of looking down on earth while perched on a beautiful cloud formation. I was fascinated with the sky (and until now) especially on a beautiful day. My sister and I used to play "search a" form from among the clouds. We had to hurry looking for one because the clouds could at times change appearance very quickly.
After reading Kat's Exploring the Camera about the sky, I searched from my photos of recent sky shots. I am surprised that subconsciously I almost always take a photo of the sky especially if I go on a landscape shooting. Perhaps I am drawn to the sky because it serves as a perfect and natural backdrop. Many think that the sky is just blue on a fine day, but I see in my shots that the sky is never boring. It can be a cloudy or cloudless sky. The clouds also add texture to an otherwise blank canvass and a blue sky is never the same shade of blue. Sky watching is definitely interesting.

I received the print I won for the Project 64: Out of the Box challenge. I LOVE it. The photo is awesome and the frame is perfect. Brooke's work is beautiful. Please check out more of her fine art prints at RedBubble.
It's not too late to join Project 64: Out of the Box Challenge. While there, you can also check out the many wonderful works from other enthusiasts.

Hip hip hurray!!! My week kicked off with a good start because I received news over the weekend that my Chestnut photo is a favorite for the month of January. Thanks Brooke and everyone else!
The color hunting continues this week for apricot. The organizers at Project 64: Out of the Box are very helpful to give us hints and inspiration to find this color. My find is in the form of mallows which I topped with apricot colored flags. They look like music notes to me so for added drama I used a music sheet texture by ShadowHouse Creations. This just shows that I like sweets a lot, I usually find my muse in candies, dessert, or anything that is sugar inducing. Here's to hoping everyone a sweet color hunting week.

Catrina and I booked a photo session with her baby in the bun (maternity) earlier in February, but due to unforeseen events it had been pushed off. We rescheduled it last Sunday; however, Mrs. Rain seems to have other plans. It was a gloomy Sunday morning and I thought we would have to reschedule this again because our chosen location is in the outdoors. At around noon, our bipolar weather had given Mr. Sun a chance to shine. We were at the location when it had started to drizzle; then, it slowly built up to a downpour. We had to cut short the shoot lest we all get sick (which we do not want to happen especially with the mom-to-be). Gratefully, we managed to take a few shots of the pregnant, but fabulous Catrina.

by only me is your doing,my darling)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
(Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

This project keeps on racking my brain with what to submit for the weekly assignment. This is a challenging project, but satisfying. I find that I'm encouraged to really think "out side the box" for my weekly submissions. For this week, I even have to go down low just to take a photo of the gray stones.
On a side note, Project 64: Out of the Box, is holding a voting poll for a monthly winner. The poll is open only until Wednesday midnight. Be sure to check it out and vote for your favorite photo of the month.

When I saw the prompt that it's gonna be a shade of blue for this week, I thought it's going to be easy. However, finding the right robin's egg blue color proved to be a difficult one. Bummer! There are just too many shades of blue of which I have difficulty differentiating from each other. I have to consult the Crayola website to see their blue palette and train my eye to see the differences. I have photographed two other items before I finally found the item with the color closest to robin's egg blue. Funny that I have found the object at the most unlikely places, at the office, a place where earlier this week I have concluded that there's NOTHING I'll find anything interesting to photograph. Well, I humbly stand corrected in both instances.
