the details


Oh, how I love color. Bright and bold or soft and subtle, I revel in color. Black and white is wonderful, but color makes photographs sing. I find it fun to focus in, using monochromatic color to emphasize line and shape. Details, like texture, come alive. 

Anika KT's image is a great example. It's simple, yet a feast for the eyes with the bright color and texture. Perfect for a color girl like me.
