LAPC #151 Large to Small

The challenge today

This week, we’re thinking about size–from large to small. For this challenge, pick a color and select several photos that feature that color.  Start with a photo of a big subject in that color (for example, a wall) and move all the way down to a small subject in that same color (for example, an earring).

  1. Oh, how I love this collection, Marsha! The Venetian shoe is gorgeous, and the quilt is so sweet – cannot pick a favourite though. They are all special.

    • Thanks, Leya. I had a lot of fun with this challenge. 🙂 I love the shoe best, I think. I had forgotten I even took it. 🙂


  2. Great variety of selections for this challenge, Marsha. I love the colour turquoise and all shades blue, and love to see many pops of these colours you presented here. You looked like you were having a good time at the car show. It’s great they let you sit in the VW for a bit of fun and pose 😄 One time I went to a vintage carshow here in Melbourne and they let me and my friend sit in one of the colourful vintage cars when we asked.

    • That’s so much fun. Did you get pictures? It gets you involved in the cars. That’s one of the reasons I love going to car shows. When my husband had his own car and just had to sit with it waiting for people to come to him, it drove me nuts. I enjoy walking and talking to people and taking pictures of the ones I like. Now we just go our separate ways and both take pictures, meet up, share, talk, walk around together, then get sidetracked by the cars we like. Then we both don’t feel shackled. 🙂 Thanks for your thoughtful comment. 🙂


      • Yes, my friend and I got pictures in the vintage cars, and one one a vintage firetruck too 🙂 That is sensible of you and your husband to go your own ways and do what you like, and then meet up – and you both have a good time. You don’t have to do everything together as a couple, and it’s always good to meet in the middle 🙂

    • Yes, that was me. The owner and I talked for quite a while, he asked me if I wanted to sit in it and have my picture taken. Who could refuse that offer?

    • Thanks, Monica. You are too kind. Patty and Jesse are here visiting today. They were asking about you and Jack. Hope to talk to you soon. 🙂 Lots of love. 🙂


    • Thanks, Amy. The quilt was made by a friend. When I was in CA, one of my favorite events to attend was the Best of Valley Quilt Show. The array of beautiful quilts and dolls would make your head spin, but they made a great photo shoot. 🙂 Have a great week this week.


  3. Wowza Marsha! Great job on this one, and early too!!! Loved all of your examples (the little car was my fav of this set) and the way you presented them in order. Great!!
