Week 13: Feeling Blue

Blue was the theme of the week, and I was so excited because blue is one of my favorite colors. But I had a really hard time coming up with something I liked that fit within the theme.  Sometimes being given a theme actually makes my mind a complete creative blank.

Eventually I came up with two different images.  The first was because it was sunny this week and the blue sky was gorgeous.  I also really wanted to try my hand at getting that sun flare.

Day 306

There’s a strange thing that happened when we set back the clocks on Saturday night. All of a sudden, when I go to work super early in the morning, the sun is starting to come up instead of it feeling like I’m driving in the middle of the night.

As I was driving this morning, I was watching the windows of a building in front of me and they were a brilliant red color. It took me a moment to realize they were reflecting back an amazing sunrise.

Then late this morning, I couldn’t resist taking this picture of the same street with these great clouds.
