Colour Impregnation

Red door blue graffitti

As some of you may know, I am taking a photography course (actually, it’s more like a workshop). The first assignment was ‘colour impregnation’. I took a couple of photos, and the above is the one I chose for the final assignment. Below or two others.

I will be traveling for about a week and will not have regular access to the internet. For this reason, I will be unable to read posts during this time.

See you next week.

  1. Aw, have a fabulous time on your travel Stacy.
    You made the perfect choice, the red and blue in the picture stand out without contradicting each other. And at the same time, I love the second picture too, something calming about it 😀

    1. Thank you so much Ameena. I also thought the red and blue really popped.
      You have a wonderful week, and I’ll see you when I get back.

    1. Oh, me too. I took a bunch of door photos when I was in Buenos Aires on my mom’s iPhone. She still hasn’t sent me them though. There are great door photo opportunities there.
      Thanks Wendy, and have a great week. See you when I get back.

  2. I love all three, Staci, but I’m really partial to the flower. I love the color contrast, as well as the various textures in the photo. Having the delicate yellow flower juxtaposed by the ragged rock is wonderful!

    1. Thanks Rob. Yea, I like the idea of a colourful flower coming out of an unlikely place, like cement or ashes or something like that.
      Have a great week and see you when I get back.

  3. Staci, all three photos are wonderful. I love the one you selected, it’s so rich in color and texture, excellent photo! Have a fun traveling, take good care. ~ Mia

    1. Thanks Mia. You know, I hadn’t considered actually posting my class assignments here until you mentioned it.
      I’ll try to have fun traveling, that’s if we actually leave tomorrow. I just got back from my art class and let paint thinner spill all over the back seat. My husband went to see if he can get it cleaned somehow and in time for us to travel tomorrow. Eek.
      Have a great rest of the week.

      1. It was such a pleasant surprise to see your photographs, yay, beautiful! Wishing you good luck with the back seat, paint thinner and your travel schedule. I hope it all works out and you don’t get delayed! Have a wonderful and safe trip. ~ Mia 🙂

      2. Thanks Mia. Everything worked out in the end. Just got back Monday night. I have opened up to your blog already and will be by later to read what you’ve been up to.
        Have a wonderful day.

      3. Staci, I’m pleased to read that everything worked out. I hope that you had a marvelous time, welcome home! Thank you, likewise, wishing you a wonderful day as well! 🙂

    1. Thanks Alok.
      It’s actually not time off. My husband, daughter and I are going to be in our niece’s wedding. It’s going to be a busy time.
      You have a great rest of the week.

    1. Thanks Audrey. Our niece is getting married. Hubby, daughter and I are all in the wedding. It’s going to be busy.
      Hey, I tried to get into your blog today but for some reason it didn’t work. I’ll have to try again.
      You know, I’ve been wanting to photograph that house for some time now. Glad you like it.
      Have a great rest of the week Audrey.
      Hugs to you.

      1. Oh my gosh, have a wonderful time! I’ve been in weddings with my children and exhusband, we had a great time and the pictures priceless.

        Thanks for letting me know about my blog. Not sure what’s going on…some can and some cannot and I’m at a loss as to why.

        Enjoy your time!!

      2. Heyyyyy Audrey, so sorry for the delay. As you know, I was traveling and didn’t have much access to the internet.
        Ok, you have now thrown me for a loop. Hahaha. I had no idea that you had children, and were once married. How many children do you have? Boys or girls?
        Hope you’re having a great week so far.
        I will be by later to see what you’ve been up to.
        🙂 ❤

      3. My marriage ended late this summer. A very sad and painful end. I tried and fought for 9 years to forgive an affair. I fought harder to keep my children in the end and succeeded. He tried using them to keep me there. I’ve related to Nebraska and closer to my family. A blessing to be with them again. I continue to struggle with letting God down by divorcing but each day I wake up I feel no regret and feel God’s love upon me.

        A son, Braden 13 and a daughter, Macey 11. I wasn’t permitted to speak of them or my life, but now I can when I see fit to do so. Thanks for asking about them, Staci.

      4. Oh wow. I guess that explains why you were absent for a while eh. I’m so sorry to hear/read of what you have gone through, your inner turmoil. I’m glad you succeeded in keeping your children.
        ” I continue to struggle with letting God down by divorcing”
        –Ohhhhh, I’m sorry that you are struggling with this. Infidelity is a serious act. Please know that you haven’t done anything wrong. I believe that. Have you read the passages in Matthew?
        Bless you Audrey. You and your children, and your new normal in Nebraska.

      1. Thanks you so much Inky for the encouragement. My next course project is to take a picture of a piece of fruit. Hmmm… I hope it comes out nice. We’ll see.
        Hope you’re having an amazing week so far.
        🙂 ❤

      2. Welcome! 😀
        Can’t wait for that.What fruit have you chosen?
        Aa it could be amazing if I weren’t stressing about studies. :/
        Anyway I hope you’re having a good time.

      3. Ohh, haha. I’m not sure what fruit yet. We’ll see.
        Eek, stressing about school. I hope you have some tranquility waiting for you soon enough.
        All the best to you in your studies Inky.
        🙂 ❤

    1. Thank you so much AO. I am so sorry it’s taken me so long to respond to your comment. It’s because I was traveling for about a week and had very little internet access.
      The first one is my favourite too.

    1. Thanks so much Vashti. It was very busy and I’m glad to be back.
      I also like door pictures. I got some really good shots of doors when I was in Buenos Aires. Only problem is that they are on my mom’s iPhone, and she can’t figure out how to get them to me. Oh well, I’ll have to get them when I go to Canada at the end of the year.

      1. Hahaha. I’m going to have to teach my mom how to use technological stuff when I go. We just actually finished talking about that by Skype.

  4. O! that great Staci…I have been planning but not able to join any workshop on photography, have a great time and I am personally looking forward to learning some important tips from you. The pictures you have chosen are sublime and simplicity artfully manifested.
    Enjoy yourself, take care!!!

  5. Love the post! Your photographs are beautiful! May you enjoy this trip immensely!

    ~ Dajena 🙂

    1. Awwww, thanks Dajena. I’m so glad you ‘love’ this post. The next project in my course is to take a photo of a piece of fruit. Haha. Let’s see what I can come up with.
      Just got back from the trip. It was very busy, and I’m so glad to be home. I’ll be over at your blog later to see what you’ve been up to.
      Have a great rest of the day.
      🙂 ❤

      1. I bet you are happy to be home, but what a wonderful opportunity to see all those gorgeous places. Love to you!
        ~ Dajena 🙂

      2. Happy to be home, yes. We had our bathroom renovated while we were away, and we still haven’t been able to get rid of all the dust. Haha.
        Love to you Dajena.

  6. Color impregnation? Never heard of that. I’ll go check around—sounds good if I just could make it on word basis, though. 🍸

    1. Hey there Kutukamas, so sorry for the delay in responding. Your comment didn’t show up in my notifications. I just saw it when I went into my admin.
      Yea, I don’t think ‘ impregnation’ is common in English. I translated from Portuguese, being that I live in Brazil. I guess the idea was to take a photo that had a colour that stands out.

  7. ‘Photography’ ….u have so much to urself…wonderful 🙂
    I wonder how beautifully u bring out colors in almost everything, that’s commendable….I loved it.
    Keep going Staci…all the best for everything u do 🙂

    1. Awwww, thank you so much Saaransh. The photography course is free, put on by the city for encouraging the arts and culture. I figured, “Why not?” It is free and I have an amazing camera that I don’t know how to use. Hahahaha. I am allowed to do 2 courses there, so I’m also taking a painting course. Hahaha. It’s always good to keep on learning, isn’t it.
      Thanks again, my friend.

    1. Ohhhh, hahaha. Thanks Yvette. The workshop is great. It is really helping me understand a lot more about photography. I have a great camera, but didn’t know how to use it all that much.
