Color sketch is a so-called “effects mode” on my Nikon. Described by photography writer, Chris Hall, as “making something out of nothing”, these photographs prove you can create art out of everyday things. The first photograph is the view from my office chair. You can see my clock, weights, M&M machine and books. In the upper left hand corner is a calendar Meg gave me for Christmas. The cover is a photograph of my husband, Terry, sitting in the back yard.
The beautiful flowers in this shot are really ink pens Meg gave me for my birthday in 2009. She was in the midst of final exams her first year of law school.
These photographs include some of my favorite reminders of Meg and Terry. But color sketch sure does make my office more fun for those who don’t understand the pure pleasure I get from the treasures with which I have chosen to surround myself.
