Pink Snow

Pink Snow

Today is one of those days that needed a little extra color – well, not a little extra – it needed a lot of extra color. And so here is my solution.

I finally opened a Picnik account with Flickr so I could play with my photographs. And that it what I have been mostly doing – playing. I change things around until I find something that appeals to me, but I never post any of these because – well, because they seem pretty weird and very manipulated, and of course they are.

Today I decided that it is okay to play with my photographs and have fun with them and even share them some of the time. Why not? So when I discovered this above creation – why, I couldn’t pass up a teal and orange plow contrasted with pink snow. And so I am sharing, just because.

Maybe it will make you groan and shake your head, but maybe it will make you smile a bit, too. I hope it’s the latter. Anyway – now that I’ve enjoyed my pink wintry scene, I’ll be on my way. 🙂

    Hmmmmm!!! Pink Snow. You’ve been up to “Cat In The Hat” I see. Where are Thing 1 & Thing 2?

    Interesting perspective. Keep playing around with things. You never know what you might find.

    I thought that I would never see
    Pink snow drifts under a pine tree,
    A teal and orange plow so bold
    It doesn’t even look that cold.
    Fools like me can make poems grow
    But only Bo can make pink snow.

    I like it! The golden yellow is a nice contrast.

    It’s pretty cool. It made my eyes about pop when I first clicked on here.

    They say the best photographs are accidents, so it follows that playing should be a legitimate way to make art.

    Creativity…that’s what its all about. Or so they tell me. 🙂

    I like Gandalf’s “Cat in the Hat” comment. I think it is wonderful that you are experimenting..that is what it is all about..stepping out of your comfort zone.
    I say go girl!!

    Pink snow is cool, yellow snow is a different story now !! 🙂

    I have heard about yellow snow but pink? 🙂

    LOL That is just what I had written in reply to you on one of my posts–“Why not?” I love the teal and pink effects. I like it, I like it! Smiling. 🙂

    gandalf ~ I do believe the Cat is in a box in the basement. I should go do some afternoon reading.

    quinn ~ an interesting poem for sure, thanks.

    pat ~ that bit of yellow does stand out, doesn’t it?

    alissa ~ is it a good thing or a bad thing when eyes pop? And the definition of art sure is broad!

    jules, gypsy ~ if we didn’t experiment in art, life would be that much duller.

    bernie, mon@rch ~ I DO know enough to be suspicious of yellow snow. 🙂

    anna ~ absolutely. Why not!

    Makes me smile – I love playing around with my stuff 🙂
    I have a Picnik account too, but am not using it, because I don’t want to upload at a million places 😉

    I really do like the pink snow :-]

    This is a fun picture. I do that, place pictures up just because. It is important to enjoy your pictures.

    j. ~ thanks
    nicole ~ if you can’t have fun, might as well not do it, right? 🙂
    lady ~ think pink!
    preston ~ thanks, photo fun reigns!
