1 - Diptych - Huh??? I had no idea what that was but a I looked up the definition and here's what it said. A diptych is a photograph that uses two different or identical images side by side to form one single artistic statement. The two images can literally be in contact with each other, or separated by a border or frame. After reading the definition I was still lost but thanks to Faith at Simplicity and her wonderful blog post this past week I was able to figure out what it was. Still confused, check out Pioneer Woman's blog post on the subject as well.
And here enters my beloved peacock feather......just love the vibrant colors and the texture.
2 - Books. I have a ton of books since I love to read and tried a number of different ideas with this but I kept coming back to how beautiful the pages were, especially since they were different shades of cream. I now tend to read books with my Kindle but I have a ton of books on my book shelves from used book sales that I still need to get to. So many wonderful books and so little time......
3- Fill in the blanks prompt. Oh wow, all of my original ideas were all over the board and I ended up with a good shot for this since my house is full of these evil girl scout cookies, they are just the best!!!
When I think about how girl scout cookies are in my tummy, I just have to have one or two for breakfast!
4- A taste of Italy.
I suspect there will be a ton of pictures of pasta and other delicious Italian foods, but I wanted to snap shots of wine instead but with a major headache, I had to pull this from my archives from the holidays. I just didn't want to open a delicious bottle of wine and not be able to drink it - that would be a mortal sin in my house! Good wine should never go to waste.
5 - Reminders. This one stumped me because my to-do lists aren't very pretty to shoot so I started looking around my house and once I laid my eyes on my beautiful palm plant, I knew I had to shoot it. I got this plant from my Grandmother's funeral in August 2009 and every time I look at it I think of her. I usually am not successful with plants but this one is thriving in my dining room. I honestly feel like she's here with me every time I look at it or water it and that brings a smile to my face. I miss and love you Grandma!
