Thematic Photographic 185 - Greyish
Boca Raton, FL, January 2012
This week's Thematic theme, greyish, reflects the tone with which I've been viewing the world of late. Here in the Great White North, it's the middle of a winter that's been anything but wintry. A decided lack of snow has left the landscape muddy, washed out, seemingly colorless. Some days, life as a whole seems to reflect the view outside as we collectively plod through a time of year that many of us find endlessly dreary. Or something like that.
However we see it, I wanted to use photography as a way of exploring the mood, of turning the morose into something just a little bit brighter. Because even if it isn't brilliantly colorful and bright, it can have an appeal all its own. Beauty comes in many forms, after all, and over the next week I hope we'll all find ways to find it in the more subdued edges of the spectrum.
Your turn: Take a greyish picture - it can be monochrome, near-monochrome, or something that reminds you of the color and/or the tone - and share it on your blog or website. Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to spread the photographic goodness. Don't be afraid to invite a friend along, as we're always happy to welcome new folks to the Thematic fold. What's Thematic? Click here and all will be explained.
