Living art – A Photo a Week Challenge – Colorful

This week Nancy has challenged us with the topic of ‘Colorful’, saying:

I’ve done several color challenges lately, so this time I decided to go for the whole shebang. I’m looking for the most colorful thing you can find to photograph.

Well the first photo I decided to use was of the hundertwasserhaus in Vienna, a truly stunning piece of architectural art, colourful, enlivening, inspirational.  Living here would certainly colour your life.

“Just carrying a ruler with you in your pocket should be forbidden, at least on a moral basis. The ruler is the symbol of the new illiteracy. The ruler is the symptom of the new disease, disintegration of our civilisation.” – Friedensreich Hundertwasser

And of course, as I have previously posted when answering these sort of challenges about colour, one of the most colourful things I can think of is my wife, so the next photo is of her, certainly not following straight lines in this photo.

Wearing rainbows – Weekly Photo Challenge – Bright Colors

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End’ challenges us with:

The weather’s getting me down so I’m looking for a bit of a pick-me-up this week. Let’s make the colors the story of the photo. This week…. Photograph Bright Colors

So what is the first thing I think of when presented with ‘bright colours’, it has to be my wife and her bright rainbow coloured clothing.
