Crayola Challenge: Melon

I love the mix of detail and softness in this photo and it overall just has a sense of the color "melon".

Crayola Challenge: Mahogany

A little something different for mahogany. I took this photo of a wall mural at Fairyland , a children's playground in Oakland. Mahogany is the color of the middle fairies pants, and I felt the soft border was appropriate for this threesome of fairies.

Crayola Challenge: Maroon

I love this shot of a butterfly I took at the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Gardens butterfly pavilion. It really shows what my macro lens can do. The detail is just incredible. And, I was inspired by my friend Slade to enter some photos into a contest for the first time, and as soon as I saw this image I knew I had something I wanted to share. If you like it as much as I do, please vote for me in the National Wildlife Federation photo contest .

Crayola Challenge: Magenta

I really like the reflection of the neon lights on the sign in this one.

Crayola Challenge: Lavender

I struggled with lavender for awhile, as like Molly I was surprised how pink the lavender crayon is and not what I expected. I tried several different shots and finally decided on this one of my pillow case.

Crayola Challenge: Jungle Green

  Makenna asked to do a "photo shoot" at the park last weekend. She was very cute, picking the spot at the park and her multiple poses. I've been looking for jungle green for awhile now, and just realized the color of the jungle gym in this photo is a good match.

Trip to Fairyland

I love this series of shots of my niece Makenna from last weekend at Fairyland... Pre-Fairyland, all glamor and ready to go.  At Fairyland, enjoying the rides. Post Fairyland, all worn out.
