A Pretty Accident

glitter

I was having a clumsy day. It seemed like everything I picked up, I dropped.

Including this glitter.

I was picking up my daughter’s craft supplies and accidentally spilled her glitter all over the kitchen floor. My first reaction was to swear. But while I stood there wondering whether to get down and pick up the pieces or simply sweep them away, I noticed how the sun lit up the colours like a kaleidoscope.

So I grabbed my camera. Then I cleaned.

Weekly Photography Challenge: The Hue of You

crab-apple

When I first read the assignment for this week, I thought the colours in the photo should be intense. But it quickly occurred to me that hues don’t have to be saturated. Pink is my colour. And I chose this photo of soft pink because it is subdued, like me. Quiet. This is the hue of me.
