EMPS #45 -- Black and Blue

Carly of the blog Ellipsis sponsors the Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot, and today's theme is "Black and Blue." It can include photographs of black and/or blue things or items that make us emotionally blue.

My first photo is of a little cat who makes me anything but feeling blue -- he is such a sweet guy and lots of fun to have around. He is black with silver and I have pictured him on a blue tablecloth so that is my first black and blue item.

My second black and blue shot is of a black photo album, which contains pictures of my late husband Steve, sitting on the same blue tablecloth.

Since I am always curious about what is in photo albums, I thought you might be, too, so I included the first page of the album. It has lots of blue on it!

For extra credit, Carly wanted to know which is our favorite color and why, and how it affects our choices for photography. I'd have to say that bright, primary colors are my favorite -- blue, green, red and yellow. When I have the opportunity to photograph something in those colors it makes me happy. I noticed my mood lifting when I took the picture of the first page of Steve's album, for instance.

If you would like to learn more about this photo challenge, head on over to Carly's blog as linked above. You will find links to last week's challenge posted and to this week's in the comments.

I hope that black album is not making you feeling blue right now. Take care.

Hi Suzanne :)

Oh my, your entry made me smile this week, it's always fun to see one of the cats that brings you such happiness. I know the joys of owning a cat! So pretty too. There is just something about tabby cats, that makes them so much fun to look at. Their patterns are so interesting to me. Thank you for talking a little about your photography and it's relation to color. I will keep in mind to do a "Primary Colors" entry sometime in the near future!

We used to have a cat just like that when I was in high school. All good choices this week.
