Photography 101: Color and Architecture


Earlier in the week, I was at the wheel all day and it’s just not safe to drive and blog. So here are two of the prompts I missed: A Pop of Color: Here the idea is to offer a dollop of color against a neutral background. The first is a golden hued street light against a gray November twilight:

Have you ever seen a yellow headed crow? This was my first encounter on a golf course here in Reno.

Architecture: I already posted the best Architecture shot I had, but may bring it to this prompt as well. Notice the geometric lines. Contrast the sleek lines of the large casino in Reno, the roundness of the National Bowling Stadium, and the more garish designs of the Cathedral in the foreground.

And finally, an evening shot of our front door–a simple play of arch and stained glass.

    Frank and I saw our first golden headed crow in Ventura this past August.
    We were so excited to see such a beautiful, new to us, bird sitting on a bush in our backyard. We rushed to the Internet to identify him after he flew off. I watched everyday while we were at our rental home; but alas, he did not return while we were there.
    No matter he is a bright and happy memory for us.
