A forgotten joy

    Newer Older

    For the 365 days group, day 326, and for International Child At Heart Week, and for my granddaughters, who love to color.

      I love to color too! Remember "it's alright if you happen to color outside of the lines."

      I love how you can have different colored bears and things and no one notices! :)

      Our girlie girls do love to color!

      TJOY - Thank you - I was.

      Karen - oh, I do that sometimes too, but that slightly obsessive part of me just so wants not too. :)

      Oh yeah on both counts lynn. Thanks.

      That's my favorite part sometimes; I can have a purple or red or green bear and no one complains. :)

      Good photo. I LOVE coloring. Question... did you finish the picture??

      :) I just smiled when I saw this... coloring can be so fun. I still do it once in a while at a restaurant while we wait for food... our youngest is still just young enough to be ok with getting the kids coloring sheet while he waits.
      Seen on your photo stream. (?)

      I love the smell of crayons :)

      Oh yeah—the smell when you break open the big box of 64 Crayolas is just magical.

      Crayons, yes, that's the essence of child-at-heart... One of our favorite restaurants gives out cups of crayons and covers the tables with butcher paper. More than once I've had to cut out a section of the paper to take home, the kids couldn't bear to part with it...

      Very nice shot here Todd! I am going to copy this for my self portrait for today. Thanks for the idea.

      LOL Bey. :)

      Deb - not yet, and thank you.

      Mary-Cakes - :)

      Tamelyn - ditto on that. It always makes me smile.

      sfisher - Thank you.

      vfm4 - glad you like, and added. Thanks for the invite.

      Simis - I'm honored that you like it so much, and would enjoy seeing your take.

      I like it! Very well balanced composition. Focus and depth of field are perfect. The color temp is a little warm for my taste though.

    16. Tojosan 92 months ago | reply

      Thank you Mike for the comments. I appreciate the feedback too about the warmth. That was a struggle for me to decide how to adjust it, and this actually looked the most appealing to me vs a cooler version.
