Thematic Photographic 121 - Yellow


Someone's dishes are gonna be dirty
London, ON, August 2010

Welcome to Thematic Photographic's yellow week. I've done this color before, but I enjoyed the week so much that I've decided to revisit it. Come to think of it, I'm somewhat partial to any color-based theme, so watch for more along these lines in the weeks and months to come.

This is an admittedly odd photo to kick off our theme. Then again, I have an admittedly odd way of looking at the world, so it's just as well that I had my camera with me after coming across this scene in a local parking lot. I can't even begin to explain how this yellow glove came to be here, and I'm not sure any of us really wants to know. But it was asking to be recorded all the same. So I obliged.

Photography, after all, isn't always about what we choose to capture. Sometimes, it's about the things that choose us.

Your turn: If you've done Thematic before, I won't stand in your way. Post your pic, leave your comment here, and have fun! If you're new to our weekly photographic share-fest, click here for more background on how it works. We promise it doesn't hurt.

There's just something about those yellow gloves...

I've got some over here as well!

Yellow! Is there another colour that makes one smile more broadly? Especially when it is a silly yellow rubber glove..... or a pair of rainboots ..... or the duck outfit my son tried to fit into last night when we were at the second time around store looking for a Halloween costume.

hmmmm......I think I've got a few yellow pics in need of posting. :)

Yellow! I love it. And I love the story of the single rubber glove.

Here are my little splashes of playful yellow...

yellow is caution...being cautious i nearly said i will pass again...but waiting for the best time to try someting new does not WORK for me....

BTW~it was a lot more work than typing a bunch of stuff~

Mustang Sally said...

I understand exactly, some subjects just demand you take their photo.

You can see my contributions this week here

Karen Sather said...

Carmi I'm curious, was the glove left exactly like that or did you reposition it just a bit? Can't believe all the posts already. I'm excited...and I am offering 3.

An ordinary object turned artistic. Is a very lovely shot. Did not think I would ever say that about a rubber glove....

Juniper said...

That glove shot is eye-catching, I like it a lot.

Blogger let me down on the photo uploading today so not as imaginative as I'd hoped, but anyway Here is mine

Dishes? Thank goodness... I thought it was a surgical glove! ~ jb///

srp said...

It is a little sad... lost and alone in the middle of a black asphalt jungle.... sigh!

I went back into the days of printed pictures and film and into the old albums of twenty so years ago to find mine. But, every once in a while it is nice to remember and put those memories into more than just pictures... as the time is so fleeting as you know. I think your post on your now.. 16 year old did it. I think he was 11 when I first started blogging and found your site. My daughter will be 25.. simply cannot wrap my mind around that.

So my shades of yellow and Halloween past is here.

Brian Miller said...

nice. there is a story there somewhere...thanks for the props today...i have two boys myself (6&8) that are all about superheroes now...but i think the discussion you had with yours is an important one to have...

~Buff said...

I can't resist another yellow themed photo, even if it is on the orange side of yellow.

Karen Sather said...

I just couldn't resist searching for yellow, all day long. Is it a soul-satisfying experience? Maybe.
Check out my Day 2 yellow post!

That bright glove on the gray pavement reminds me of brightly-colored raincoats on a dreary Seattle day.

Here's my yellow:
