MiFoC August {Week 3: Color}

Color has been on my mind for Manuela’s Mikrokosmos Photography challengeMagpie's Nest wardrobe sampler

this peek at some of my wardrobe shows a few of my favorite colors (altho the purple turned out looking burgandy…I did not have natural light when I snapped the photo)

Magpie's Nest Stargazer Lily Shelfie

today I cut some Stargazer lilies in our garden and took this shelfie photo (thanks to my art friend Christie for introducing me to that term)…

I just happen to have two of my favorite colors in sari ribbon hanks…

  8. Amazing photos my >liebe< Patty … I ♥ the softness in all of them and I recognized that you are more the "cool color girl" what concerns your clothes!
    Me too !
    Long time ago I took a "color me beautiful" lesson to find out my personal type of season –and I turned out to be a "summer" girl and they handed me out a color scale on which were amazingly exactly the colors I normally used to wear!
    Have a wonderful weekend, hope the wedding celebration was fine !

  12. Shelfie. I LOVE the concept and went to her flickr page and saw them. I call them your famous vignettes, but now I can type a new word, instead.

    As always, lovely photos and encouraging (and colorful) quote.

  14. Wonderful fotos Maggy!
    I think we love similar colors to wear, blue, turquise and a cool red. But we love all colors in nature too!
    Have a nice weekend.
