Two Things Challenge: Blue / Green

Fenton art glass boots backlit by the
streaming through my dining room blinds

This week's Two Things Challenge was Blue / Green. Since I'm scheduling this post prior to Sunday and as I haven't had time to get out and take a lot of photos this week, I'm culling from my archives. Well, almost. The second photo (below) is new. I took it on Thursday as I was coming home from lunch with a friend. For Blue, I chose a picture of Fenton art glass. These are two glass boots I have in a small collection of four. I liked the way the light was hitting them in the curio cabinet.

For Green, I shot this photo through my car's sunroof. It was raining and I liked the green of the tree's leaves smudged by the rain on the roof. It's sort of unoriginal, though, because I stole a play out of Maya's book this week. Still, I love photos taken through rainy windows. (P.S. For those who know my propensity for photographing while driving, I was stopped at a red light when I took this.)

I had a couple of other photos in my archives that I thought were appropriate for this week's theme, so I'm throwing them in just for fun!

Did you get those boots' permission before taking their photos?

Wha ha ha... I make me laugh.

Very colourful. The glass boots are very cool :)

Virginia: Thank you! And I made sure it was a long light and I had my foot on the brake before I took pictures!

NG: No, I forgot. But they did threaten by breaking into song... "These boots are made for walking and that's just what we'll do/ One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you...." I backed away real quick after that!

Marley: Thanks! I started my modest collection with a glass boot I inherited from my late grandmother, so these are kind of special to me.

Your archives are equally as beuatiful and beguilling as all your posts. I do hope the street photogrpahy thing has calmed down. Yi have some wonderful photography and I hope you continue to photograph images that reflect your sharp eye.

Colorful entries! Love the blue glass boots. Dang, I missed out this week's challenge. maybe I should go back into my archives in the future.

Virginia said...

I am thrilled that D.L. forgot this week. I am in good company when I forget again. Am I rubbing off on this elite group????

D.C. Confidential said...

Babooshka: I can proudly report that Saturday featured a great deal of photography that included lots and lots of people. Check out tomorrow's entry to see what I did on Saturday!

Rob: We missed you this week on 2TC. Dig through your archives and leave a comment so I can add a link to your interpretation. I have no doubt you have something absolutely stunning in green and blue in your archives!

Virginia: You're rubbing off in the best ways, my dear! ;-)

Maya said...

Wow, I love the light coming through those boots! Beautiful!

Thanks for the shout out. I also am fascinated by the rain drops on my sunroof, but the photos are usually not as good as I hope for. The shots I took in the city were through a glass awning and I was quite taken with the rain on them. I stood there for quite awhile taking photos while people walked by thinking I was crazy!

Maya said...

Oh, and I forgot to mention that I love the pen shot too! But, of course I would, since I love both pens and vivid colors! ;-)

Maya: Thanks! Glad you liked this entry and all it's pretty colors. The same can be said of your choices for this week's challenge. They were fabulous and colorful and whimsical!

Hi. I like your blog. It seems to be quite interesting. I have found Bluegreen theme here. I learned about the company from this great site To say the truth I should not have gone there after the numerous negative customers’ feed backs about the company. However, I did the rocky mistake and I regret this greatly.
