This month I started a red and green project. I love colour and I love combinations of colour. Red and green seemed an obvious choice for this month, but I did not want to capture the traditional Christmas images. I was using this time of year as an inspiration, but I didn’t want all of the images to be about Christmas. It started with my red shoes, and green fern leaves. I posted the picture online, and then thought maybe I should do this for the whole of December. I am amazed at how many “red and green” combinations I have seen when I didn’t have my camera. A red and green cars parked next to each other. A toddler with a green tutu, red tshirt, and red shoes. A green letterbox with red flowers. All of these, and many more have popped into my field of vision. I was truly at awe with how many times I have seen this color combination in the last two weeks.
Personally, we moved house and I wanted to stay creative during this crazy time. It helps me to be a little sane, and helps me to get through my to do list. Once I crossed something off my to-do list, then I could play with the camera. Many of the images I shared via instagram or via VSCO as we didn’t have the internet for a while. I did take the same images with my big girl camera, whenever possible. I love my big girl camera. There are some who love IG and posting from their mobile phone. I am not one of them. I do like the simplicity but I don’t think it will ever replace my camera.
I have received a few requests to share by daily images in a collage. So here it is! The first 13 days of my red and green project.
Now take a peek at the color in Erica’s world.
