Glass Flower

WEEK 1 = CLEAR

The February Challenge is all about color – you pick a color each week and document those colors. So my first color will be my favorite color… clear. It’s a great color because it takes on the color from the things around it. So it’s every color and no color all at the same time!

Now I realize that many of you may think that clear is not a color, but ask yourself this… what color are your windows? What color are your glass dishes? What color is water (assuming it’s clean)? How about diamonds? My wife hates the fact that I insist clear be my favorite color, so this week is dedicated to her.

This particular image is an abstract of a CLEAR glass candy dish lid positioned on top of a purple DVD-R with an orange background (a shirt). The DVD served to reflect some nice rainbow colors that you can see in the refraction of the CLEAR glass.

So is anybody else joining in with the February Challenge?

Beautiful! I love the idea of putting the DVD behind the CLEAR glass lid to get a rainbow effect. I’ll have to try that sometime. I’ve been throwing around ideas of how to get some cool water shots (that’s an idea for your next CLEAR picture…). Maybe I’ll try the DVD thing too!

Wow that is pretty rad, I love the colors. I didn’t know about the February Challenge, i think I’m to busy to go about it now, but it will definably be inspiring. :)

Wow Brian, You amazed us once again. That is an awesome abstract. I love the way you combined the 3 different mediums, 3 different colors to create such a unique image. Keep up the great work, I love the way your mind works.
