Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Rainbow Colors

The rules say these “rainbow”  photos have to have at least 4 strong colors, so I think these make the grade:

This first photo is one I took of the first gingerbread house built by a good friend. He had always wanted to build a gingerbread house, but never had an opportunity as a child. Finally, in his early fifties, he decided it was time to make the dream come true. I commemorated the event with a number of photos, and we ended up using one on his personalized Christmas cards that year. I changed the background to blue and added falling snow, and it was the perfect card for him. But this is the original photo in its natural state.



This is a picture of the main hallway of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic School in my hometown. They have so many students from different nations attending the school that they have hung a flag from every nation in the world in that hallway. They definitely present a rainbow of colors. Beneath the flags are the pictures of every graduation class from the beginning of the school in 1912. 



This photo is of a good friend who does puppet theater, including making her own puppet costumes, sets, and stages. I took this picture for the back cover of her book “Puppets and More,” and I love the vibrant colors.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Wood

A Marquetry picture made for me by my dad. He has always loved working with wood and has created furniture, plaques, toys, pictures, and multitudes of other items.  Some of you will be familiar with Marquetry, but for those who are not, it is artwork created out of pieces of inlaid wood of various kinds. There is no paint used.  All of the color comes from the natural colors of the wood itself. My dad personally carved each piece used in this picture. It’s one of my favorites, but it was hard to get a good photo because of so much light reflection in the room.  I think this is clear enough for you to enjoy.
