Share Six: December 2022: Color

Color is our theme for Share Six this month and I grateful for all ability to see Color around me. The world is a beautiful place. Color comes in so many diverse areas of our lives, from sunrises and sunsets, to flora and fauna, to places we visit. There is so many opportunities to experience color in our lives.

I am fortunate that there is a local national park near me which has this splendid view of the Florida Everglades. Many an evening I have witnessed spectacular sunsets. I am hoping that 2023 will have me getting out again and enjoying these beautiful evenings.
Gardens can create avenues of beautiful colors. I have a love hate relationship with these plants. I love the effects they create especially when there are waterdrops involved, but their leaves are not long lasting and I feel like I am picking them up every 5 minutes. When Richard was so sick I made a point of going outside and pulling of the leaves before they fell on the floor.
A box of pencil crayons is a wonderful place to find color. For this image I used a vase of pencil crayons to take the picture and then rotated the image to get this effect.
Even in winter I was able to find color in the leaves in one of the county parks nearby. I needed a photo for another project, but what I loved about this image was the various colors in the leaves.
Richard likes to grow pineapples and what fascinates me, is the color of the pineapple when it first emerges and starts growing. I always thought pineapples were yellow but apparently not.
Those trees that I have the love hate relationship created a beautiful contrast of colors in the background along with the reflection of the jacuzzi in the glasses.
I am not a fan of spiders, but what I do love about spiders is their incredible ability to make spider webs. The color in the bokeh of this image is a favorite of mine.
Travel is another place where you can find color and one of the most colorful areas we have come across in our travel is the gum wall at the Seattle Market. Kind of gross but it is a wall full of different colored gum.
Color also comes with emotions. This little guy stole our hearts and he has added so much color to our world. Sleepovers are always fun and I am normally exhausted the next day because I am constantly half asleep making sure that he is still fine.
Last but not least, this time of the year is all about color. I love using my lensbaby sweet 35 to capture the color of the Christmas tree lights.

Wherever you are in the world and whatever you celebrate, I wish you a blessed time. For me it is about Christmas, and celebrating the birth of Christ. It’s about family time. It’s about little Luka tearing into his presents. It’s about quality over quantity. It’s about sitting at the table over a meal and enjoying the celebration. This year we will get to celebrate with Daniel’s mom as well. She will be flying in to the US in 2 weeks and I am so excited for her.

Stay safe, stay well, enjoy the festivities. We look forward to seeing you in 2023.
