color my world

hot Texas sun in August
a slim chance to experience a rainbow
I gathered some color from the archives
and created a "rainbow"... of sorts

I see a blinko water pitcher! I have several in a rainbow of colors, if I was energetic, I would go get them and take some pics, or I should just get to work!

Joan Elizabeth said...

I love the threads at the top, fits with your red and grey theme. And the stack of apricots is terrific too.

Country Girl said...

Love your rainbows!!

m. heart said...

pretty! love the m&m's and spoons especially.

Tracy said...

Sometimes we just have to make our own rainbow... that is so true, elk... I like your textural takes on a the rainbow theme here. And I could just eat those M & M's with one of those spoons... ;o)

elk said...

Judy said...

We've had rain her the last couple of days...and I sure need to see a rainbow right about now. This one will surely do.
Love it Elk.

I thought I had never taken a picture of a rainbow--and then I saw your lovely rainbows and realized that they are everywhere!

Here is mine:

Here is a rainbow ELK! Just for you. It's a literal interpretation but I still thought it fit. You are so inspiring!

Kath said...

What fun. I wish margie could post this week, she took an amazing photo of her son waterskiing and the spray is making a wonderful rainbow!

I have no rainbow, but we did just get a bit of rain - big old fat drops for just a few minutes, but I think it has cooled us down a few degrees, for which I am quite grateful. I hope you got some up your way.

I wanted you to know that so often I check your blog when I get up or when I get to work, and don't comment - sometimes I am interrupted, sometimes I just soak in your words & images. They always stay with me throughout the day. I don't know how you do that, but you do. Muchas gracias!

:) Debi

apriliniowa said...

Love this rainbow series but the M&M's are my favorite. Beth's comment was cute.

robinbird said...

so many great rainbows! did you do that on purpose all these years? take photographs of rainbows? this is a great invitation! i can't think of anything i have that fits in but i will look :)

Liss said...

righty O count me in this is a fun concept.

Do you want me to post my photo on my blog?

sherri said...

Once again you've compiled quite a nice collection and this time of vibrant colors. My mom has a blue glass thing that looks very much like yours. Hers has the shape of a ship on one side.

JFKlaver said...

All these colors really cheered me up! Awesome!

Relyn said...

Oh, I do love your rainbows. Especially the apricots, which make me especially happy this morning.

suehenryphotography said...

Such a happy, cheerful post. Love the way you encourage others to join you. I also love the image with the blue jar and the wonderful way the natural light from the window adds color to the image.

Ro Bruhn said...

What luscious colours, definitely my kind of world.

Mari said...

Thanks for stopping by my photo blog. You have some really great photos here and I've enjoyed looking around.
PS - I'm partial to red hair - I have two kids with it!

maccandace said...

Lovely photos, I haven't seen a real rainbow in awhile either. Thanks for the link.

AscenderRisesAbove said...

georgia b. said...
