It was certainly an adventure trying to find images to go with this week’s word, violet.
I don’t do violet. I have no clothes, jewelry or accessories that are violet (ok, one sweater that’s a dark purple). It kind of gives me the shivers… do you get that way with a color? Since I’m not attracted to the color I don’t take any photographs of things violet. I have a few shots of wildflowers and an occasional purple flower in a bouquet my husband has given me, but they didn’t really seem like much fun for this prompt.
And then I remembered these!
When we arrived in Idaho last July I realized I needed some sandals to make it through the heat of the summer. There weren’t many choices for someone who had recently had a hip replacement. I couldn’t do flip-flops, or mules or anything strappy. And then we found these. They were the only pair and they fit perfectly… only drawback? The color!
But I grew to love the sassy little things. They took me everywhere: to the beach, on walks, down to the barn and back, and to my favorite coffee shop 😉 .
Now they wait in my closet for this coming July when we go to Idaho for our next adventure.
As always I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog. For more violet images head on over to A Word in Your Ear.
P.S. As I was proofing this post I saw my recent artwork on the side bar and realized that I may not wear or photograph violet, but I certainly use it in my abstract artwork. What a funny thing… I LOVE it there. I guess it’s my adventure in color. 😀
