Crayola Challenge: Blue Green

This was one of the 600-700 "Common Dolphins" I saw out on a boat last week. It was really amazing to see so many of them, and how they liked to swim along with the boat. As a bonus to my color entry, here is a video I took of them swimming along.

P.S. If you're following closely the original list of colors, you may notice I skipped blue gray. We've discovered it's very difficult to find the right photo without being able to actually draw something with the crayon, and blue gray is one of the colors that Crayola retired awhile back. We will be updating the list with the replacement colors, final selections TBD.

P.P.S. Molly has joined in the fun of the photo challenge, check out her blog postings here.

And, a few outtakes showing different parts of the bridge, including the lights and lots of corners.

This month's theme is street photography, and while my selection may not seem like it fits the definition of street photography because it is not outdoors or on a street. But it does fit this definition from Eric Kim in that it's candid and it's in a public place:

I also appreciate his final point: "Definitions, shmefinitions... I recommend giving the middle finger to definitions--and not worrying about it. Who cares what people classify your type of photography to be? As long as you enjoy the photos you are taking--isn't that enough?"

This image is from a dance recital I attended recently while visiting friends whose three daughters all performed in many magical ways. This sweet moment was captured during the finale when all the dancers return back on stage to be honored for their hard work throughout the year. You can see how much the littles love the older dancers and how much they…

A Moment in Time Repeat: 3 AM

Sticking with the noir theme that goes so well with these very late/early time periods, I headed back to the Naval Base and found this nicely lite inset door.
