Macro Mondays: The Blues

Monday, March 26th, 2018

This week’s theme for the Flickr Macro Monday group is “The Blues.” From this week’s instructions (from Janet Towbin):

This week you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in The Blues.

Blue is a color (of course!) but it is also a music genre and a term that describes intense sadness or melancholy. For this theme you might choose to photograph an object that is mostly (if not all) blue. The blue color can be cobalt, ultramarine, turquoise, aqua, indigo, navy, sapphire, cyan, azure or cerulean to name just a few shades. If you photograph a blue object it needs to be PROMINENT in you photo. You can use “blues” music as your subject (there are some great lyrics in the Blues to inspire) or perhaps you will decide to creatively portray sadness or heartache or melancholy in a macro. Whatever your choice, please help us moderate by saying something about “the blues” in your description.

NOTE: Please do not simply photograph a CD or record album cover (like Joni Mitchell’s “Blue” album, for example) for this theme. That’s way too easy—we want to see something extraordinary, creative and blue, BLUE or bluesy. Tag photos with “Macro Mondays” and this week’s theme “The Blues” or #MacroMondays #TheBlues.

Blue Like My Eyes

This is a very special ring… soon after I gave birth to Anna (over 17 years ago now), Curtis took me out for a date night, just the two of us, to my favorite restaurant at the time, Sullivan’s in Austin. We had a lovely meal and of course talked about the baby non-stop. At the end of the meal, he pushed a gift to me across the table… this beautiful sapphire and diamond ring… my “push present” for having Anna. He said the color of the sapphire was the same color as my eyes. Aww… ladies, he nailed it. Huge points in the bank. I’m so glad there was a Macro Mondays theme that allowed to me to share the story behind this special ring. <3
