Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #45: Black & Blue

"Colors, like features, follows the changes of emotions."

-Pablo Picasso

Pretty simple concept this week. Photograph something that is BLACK, BLUE, or BLACK & BLUE. A bruise. A little BLACK dress. Someone crying could be something BLUE. If you are a Rock fan, you might show me a BLACK Sabbath album or CD cover. Maybe you just love BLUE cheese, if so, that would do just fine. This assignment is completely open to interpretation, so go out on a limb. Think outside the box. Show me something that is BLACK & BLUE.

Extra Credit: Tell me about color. What is your favorite color and why? How does color affect your choices when it comes to photography?

This week's assignment closes next Sunday evening at 9:00 PM ET. So you have almost a week to get your photo, post it to your blog, journal or website, and comeback here with the direct link. Please... NO HYPERLINKS. I must have the direct link specific to this week's assignment. Please remember to double check your link for accuracy, as the link you leave is the one I will use to link to you. Also, please include a link back here so other folks can play along with the assignment.

Hi Carly, I just realized that I forgot to wish you a happy birthday last week. I apologize for my oversight. I've got my entry up with a late in the game substitution.
