Thematic Photographic 161 - White


Backed into a corner
London, ON, July 2011

They say you can't wear white after Labor Day. I'm not quite sure who "they" are, but I'm virtually certain their so-called rules deserve a one-way trip to the recycling bin. Life's short: Wear what you want, when you want. Except the topless-on-main-street thing. That's just plain hideous. But I digress.

I've chosen white as this week's Thematic theme because I'm selfish. I've always had issues shooting white, as it's one of those colors that demands a little extra attention. Never mind that white, in the optical scheme of things, is an agglomeration of all colors, a super-color, if you will. It still throws me off a bit, makes me think a little longer before I pick up the camera and start shooting.

I hope this color-themed theme gives you similar opportunities to think and shoot over the next week, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you all bring back from your adventures.

Your turn: Shoot a picture in support of the white theme - or simply find one that you may have already taken/posted online. Leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it, then feel free to visit other participants. Repeat as often as you wish: serial Thematic is highly encouraged.

Nice challenge! I could have thrown in more photos of white weddings, but I recently photographed this beautiful creature and love to show him off.

Great new theme- white is indeed a difficult color to capture- what came to mind for my post is

Not one of my better posts but the photos are great
I also agree with you on the wear what you want when you want as long as it is not offensive. I'm going back to sewing my own clothes so I can wear whatever I want no matter what is popular now.

Well, Carmi, you and I are in sync once again. I planned to go out to the Bonneville Salt Flats before reading your post with the hint, and voila, the theme is white. Which is great, because the trip would have been bust otherwise. Read about, see the pictures here.

White is hard to capture... Your white is well captured though. My link: http://imbehindthecamera.blogspot.com/2011/09/mosaic-monday-white-lily.html

Back from the backwoods with a fresh crop of photos in tow… I’ve got some photos for this week’s theme that should be worth your time!

Alan Burnett said...

Little Nell pointed me in your direction and I am glad to see lots of friends (old and new) here. By chance my latest Picture Post is very white, hence the suggestion that I should share it with you. It can be found here :

The first photo in this post fits the "white" theme nicely.
