Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #49: Pick A Word/Pick A Color

"Almost all words have color and nothing is more pleasant than to utter a pink word and see someones eyes light up and know it is a pink word for him or her too."

-Gladys Taber


EMPS #49: Pick A Word/Pick A Color
Just as the title implies, this week's assignment is all about WORDS and COLORS. Here is what I want you to do... Pick a word, such as sleep, and show me a color that you think of when you think of that word. As an example, when I think of the word sleep, I think of blue. To make the assignment come together I would photograph a blue blanket or pillow. Make sense? Another example would be the word salad. I would think of green, but instead of photographing a salad, I would choose a single green leaf of lettuce to represent the color green. Maybe you feel angry, so angry you see red, so you might consider photographing a red roaring fire. Got the idea? You can choose any WORD, and any COLOR, but no archived photos this week, I really want you to do this assignment this week, so you can stretch your creativity in the moment. If this assignment seems too difficult... EXCELLENT! That means I have truly challenged you and I have done my part! ;)

Extra Credit: Write a paragraph about your experience this week with your photography. Did you find this to be a difficult assignment, or did it tap into your creativity? What did you learn from it?

This Monday Photo Shoot assignment closes next Sunday evening, at 9:00 PM ET. So, you have almost a full week to get your photo, upload it to your blog, journal or website, and comeback here with the direct link back to it. REMEMBER... it must be a direct link back to an entry specific to this week's photo shoot assignment, a general link to your blog will not work. Also, please include a link back here, so other folks can find the assignment and join us for the fun.

:) I really enjoyed all the photography this week. I apologize for not commenting, but I have been a little under the weather with my arthritis. Thanks so much for your patience and understanding about that. I visited each of you, I just wasn't able to comment. I will try to do better this week. I promise!

Charcoal - for me, that dark gray is the color of disaster.

My post is from week before last but couldn't be more perfect for this assignment (and I won;t have time to play along otherwise). I have added a link to EMPS in the entry :-)

I hope the pain has reduced.
Here at last is my entry. I lost the original and had to rewrite.
