Random Thoughts

Art Every Day

I admit it, I love color. I live in a city where black is the norm and it is acceptable if you wear it every day. I am guilty of it.

So, lately, I've been taking a lot of pictures and upon review of all the photos, I discover that I focused primarily on one or two colors during my expedition.

This past Saturday I took over a hundred photos. Part of my creative process is to sort through all the pictures I took; delete the really bad ones (yes, there are always really bad ones), keep the ones I want, sort and file them, and determine how to use them. This honestly can take a lot of time and often doesn't feel very creative but it has to be done. This task is often spread out throughout the week and done after a long day at the day job. It does remind me about my passion and what I love to do.

On my short walk home from Central Park I stood on the corner of Madison Avenue and 79th street and chose to take pictures of everything red. In this post are a couple of mosaics of all things red that I could see. I plan to return to the same corner this weekend and see if I can shoot other colors - I'll share what I discover.

What color do you notice most often? What if you challenge yourself to notice another color?


  1. Stunning photographs...I really enjoyed this. I most notice blues, but I will make it my challenge to notice another color. Thank you!!

  2. Great photos! I like red, but in small doses. Almost never wear it. Funny how we all feel so differently about color.

  3. great shots! like it how they all go well together just because of the red.
    My first time visiting your page, you have a lovely blog! :)

  4. See Lori, this is why i LOVE your photographs so much, because they usually focus on one or two colour themes (vs multiple colours), or one subject, or one general idea. i love the simplicity in all of these, and how you're able to bring us to really notice the 'day to day' things most of us are surrounded with & no longer even notice.

    I don't know how old you are, but do you remember LITE BRITE? When i look at the hand with all those little dots, i'm brought back to my lite brite years... thanks for the memory. xoxo

  5. These photos are just amazing... I love them so much and thanks for sharing them... I never have a camera with me... and seeing these I am thinking I need to slip it into my handbag at all times xx

  6. Nice photographs! And such a genius idea!
