I’m participating in a blog walk for the first time ever – and it’s about color palettes, which I love. Hosted by the oh-so-talented Brandi (have you seen her shop??), our instructions were to make up color palettes from photos of things that bring us joy.
It wasn’t hard to pick them. I could have chosen photos of my loved ones, or worship at my church, or any number of things, but the three below came immediately to mind. I hope you enjoy, and don’t forget to check out the other Blog Walk participants at the end of this post.
If I ever win the lottery, Hawaii is where we’ll go to live. Both Nick and I feel like entirely different people when we’re there, and the three years we lived on Oahu in the early 90’s are among our favorite memories. I took this photo during our trip there in 2009 – it was near sunset and the light was just luminous. The colors don’t scream “Hawaii” to me, but there’s something about the stillness of the water and the way it so perfectly reflects the sky that speaks of peace and contentment to me – and that’s what Hawaii means when I think of it.
During that same trip, I had the amazing experience of swimming with dolphins for the first time ever. On the way back to the car, we passed the sea lion exhibit, and this sea lion seemed to be posing, just for me. I have no idea how this photo came out the way it did – the water looks silky and I love his sinuous sleek shape.
And of course, making my jewelry brings me great joy. I’d do it all day, every day if I could.
