The theme for this weeks Project 52 was "Shades of Grey". I had this vision of finding someone with beautiful thick grey hair and getting an amazing picture. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone with grey hair. Or, at least, I don't know them well enough to be like "hey, can I take pictures of your grey hair?"
So I thought all week about what I wanted to do. I wanted to take a picture that would highlight the many shades of grey but also be something that wouldn't require traveling somewhere or alot of setup time.
On top of that, I didn't have much time this week. I had things scheduled for every night after work so it also needed to be a picture I could take at home and wouldn't need alot of natural sunlight.
So, Thursday night I took the easy way out and bought some beautiful gerber daisies from the supermarket and headed home to try and do something creative with them. Unfortunately, the boys called and I ended up getting drinks until late in the evening Thursday. I had plans to go watch the Australian Open that weekend so Friday rolled around and I was frantically packing so we could catch our plane. I took a few pics of the flowers, converted them to black and white and uploaded to Flickr so that I could have an entry. It didn't turn out too badly for a quick 10 minutes of work. What do you think?
This week's theme is "Soothing Repetition". I'm not sure how I like this theme. I may go my own way this week. Stay tuned!
