it must be the colors

here's the plan for next week. each day focus on one color when taking photos. show one photo, several or a collage. mav suggested we decide on a color a day, which is a fun idea. here it is:

monday-yellows
tuesday-blues, turquoises
wednesday-greens
thursday-whites or browns or blacks
friday-oranges
saturday-reds or purples or pinks


diverge from this as much as you wish of course - skip a day, add a color, whatever.

soundtrack to this post is stina nordenstam's "memories of a color":
I'm searching for a colour
Don't think it's got a name
It's something between pink and brown
Just like when the sun sets
Sometimes when it rains

and cat power's "colors and the kids":
It must be the colors
and the kids
that keep me alive

Great idea - count me in!

J. said...

Ah, but if you used planetary colors and themes, it would break out like this:

Monday (Moon day): Blues, whites - emotions
Tuesday (Mars' day): Red - war, aggression
Wednesday (Mercury's day): Yellows and Oranges - communication
Thursday (Jupiter's day): Purple - justice, luck
Friday (Venus' day): Pink and/or Green - money. love and beauty
Saturday (Saturn's day): Black - work, duty, banishing
Sunday (duh!): Gold, white - Success, glory

But maybe I'm getting all new-agey on ya.

Like the idea alot, though!

I have a post in my xanga with collages for the first two days! Planning on doing the other days too. It's been fun both taking photos with specific colors in mind, and going through old photos (really makes you realize how much your children have grown in just a year!)
