Thematic Photographic 131 - Blue


He has the power
West Palm Beach, FL, December 2010

We're going back to basics with this week's Thematic Photographic theme, blue. At its simplest, pick photos with blue in them and share them to your heart's content. If you really want to stretch things, feel free to explore not just what blue looks like, but what it feels like - a bummed out child, a sad-looking scene, etc. If it looks or feels blue, we want to see it.

That's it!

Oh, and have fun. Because that's why I first came up with this weekly photo sharing activity. And why it remains such a joy.

Your turn:
Share a blue-themed pic, then pop back here and leave a comment letting folks know where to find it. Repeat. Bonus points if you bring a friend along for the ride. Click here if you're new to the Thematic thing.

Carmi I must say I was worried that something out of the blue happened (no pun really) but so glad you just had a busy week too, and that all is well! Here is my blue. BTW I treasure all that is blue!

I have one son settled with his lovely family on the east of Scotland, but this is on the western side ~views across from the Knapdale Peninsula.

Fabulous holiday.....

Carmi: We've had to rebuild my Blog Page and I've just added your blog back in! If The Weather Channel logo counts (it's blue and white) I have it (along with a short story) at: http://michaelmanningtv.blogspot.com/

Fun! I agree!!

What a great capture - just at the right moment!

This was a fun one, Carmi! So many different shades and ways of seeing, "blue." Well, that could be said of any of the themes for Thematic Photographic.

My Blue Photos A combination of old and new.

We have been lacking in blue skies for quite a while, but with our cats, we still have their blue eyes.

Here's a bit of blue, I've finally had a wee bit of time to get in one this week! Cheers Carmi!



Now lets see if that worked, I'm trying to just post a link that you can click on but don't know what I'm doing! :-) If at first you don't succeed.... any suggestions on how to do this Carmi? Just encase I get it wrong.

darlin said...

LOL that totally didn't work.
