It's November in Washington State, and though we had a few unseasonably sunny days early on, it's been predictably and predominately gray. Some people dread this time of year because of its grayness, but the drabness of the weather just increases the challenge to find details that are interesting.
Last Sunday during a break in the rain I grabbed the opportunity to take out the garbage. I'm not really sure what prompted me to grab my camera (the garbage does not usually inspire my creative flair), but my journey to the dumpster turned into a hunt for spectacular color and texture. I found it!
Looking out my window, all I'd been able to see was a monotone and featureless day. However on my short walk I found lots of yummy details to savor - rough bark, weathered wood, rusty nails, peeling paint, and a perfect row of tiny mushrooms.
Thinking "Out Loud"
I think about being creative. A lot. I think about color and texture almost as often. My goal with this blog is to think "out loud" about these things that bring me such delight.
