Not quite strawberry shortcake


We're in an interim, early stage of autumn when the warmth of summer has started to fade, but the colors haven't quite started to make themselves known. As I look through my kitchen window, the world outside seems dull, gray, and somewhat muted. So I thought I'd shift gears a bit and drop in a shot of color.

Your turn: I'd like to know where you find bright, inspirational colors. If you've posted any examples online, I hope you'll share a link or two with us.

I like to see the wildflower garden pictures from last month. They were still blooming up until a couple of weeks ago. Of course I'm waiting on my pumpkins to color up as well.

As a scrapbooker, I get inspiration from EVERYTHING. I was at a convention where local businesses displayed their wares...one business used purple and lime green as their decor...I just finished my scrapbooking layout with those colors!

Strawberries are on my agenda too...I have some "hearts"...when you cut a strawberry in half and it is a perfect heart on the inside. They say they are a lover's fruit...

Magazines (ads, particularly) are good inspiration...and I even have church bulletins that I'm saving for inspiration.

Oh, and your work inspires me, lol - as you know from the 9-11 layout!

We have 4 large tomato plants in the back garden along the stone fence. Interspersed are nasturtiums, and they are so beautiful, as well as edible. Bright red, oranges, and yellows. Sometimes they fool me and I think there are new red tomatos, but nope, it's a nasturtium. My garden always soothes me this time of year. All that work and now I get to reap the rewards. It's wonderful.

My bright inspirational colors came about during Christo's "The Gates" exhibit in Central Park. Wow. Really indescribable!

Well, as coincidence would have it, I get inspiration
here. Go figure!

And then there's this, which isn't quite as bold, but just as much fun. Enjoying your photos...keep 'em coming!
