This weeks “You Capture” at I should be folding laundry is “Color.”

It put a new spin on my week – looking for color – and it was sort of interesting how everything with color, just popped out. Of course, actually capturing it? Not so easy. Especially as of lately, while I attempt and get over my ego, about taking decent pictures. I guess this is a start.
I saw these branches on a walk my sister and I took, but didn’t bring my camera, so instead I went home, and took some. At first I was having a hard time getting it to focus where I wanted it to, so I turned the lens on manual focus and had some fun with it…
I really liked the rain drops – something I havent ever been able to get before.
Earlier this week, we had two days where the sky would just light up with bright pinks, and reds. Of course, every picture I look at just doesn’t seem to “Do it” with the color, yea, it shows some of it…but not nearly as good as I wanted it to be (again with the ego trip).
And finally, this picture wasn’t taken this week, but I couldn’t not post it. When Parker was visits he always goes head over heels into the “I really like a fire truck picture on your computer” speech, and usually wins. But after flipping through 500+ pictures of fire trucks, ambulances, backhoes, toy back hoes, tiny toy kid backhoes, and so forth…I needed to get some work done, and sent him off to do something else…so he went to paint a fire truck, Amanda was nice enough to give him some of her paints…of course, he grabbed the bottle and squirted a glob of paint. At first, it looked like a fire truck – he had the whole two tire thing going, but got a little carried away, and by the time he was done, just had a red piece of paper.

    I love your branches. The sky pics are good. A little post-processing brightness adjustment might make them a tad darker for you.

      But… I think the pics are fine as is. Sometimes post processing makes them look fake. I think you got great color in here.
