A-Z Archive: L! Challenge…Light!

A-Z Archive: L! Challenge…Light Box!  I have been looking forward to sharing these photos with you since the beginning of this challenge.

This week’s topic for our “A-Z Archive” photo challenge: the “L” archive: introduce one photo of your archive with a “L” Keyword. – I’m sure you’ll find a picture: tag with “A-Z Archive” and put a link on your page to FrizzText, so we’ll get a trackback-list including your post!

These photographs were taken with my iphone…I really had no other option.  Photographs in the museum are forbidden.  However, I could not pass up the opportunity to capture the feeling of standing in a rainbow. I know…iphone photos…don’t be a hater!

This is part of a Carlos Cruz-Diez art exhibit.  If you can believe this is a completely white room…there are light boxes positioned through out the rooms.  As you move through the rooms the color in the room changes…the color of the room is dependent on your position to the light box and the angle of the room and the bending and blending of the light

I originally posted this slideshow in a post last March called Standing in a Rainbow.  I hope you enjoy the show!

A-Z Archive: K! Challenge…The Letter “K”

This week’s topic for our “A-Z Archive” photo challenge: the “K” archive: introduce one photo of your archive with a “K” Keyword. – I’m sure you’ll find a picture: tag with “A-Z Archive” and put a link on your page to FrizzText, so we’ll get a trackback-list including your post!

This past December some friends and I decided to attend the Houston Heights Home Tour.  Most of the homeowners did not allow photographs to be taken of their homes.  The owner of this particular home not only allowed photographs to be taken…she encouraged it!  This home is sensory overload from the front door to the back yard.  My A-Z Archive entry for the letter “K” was taken while we were waiting in line to tour the home.  Some of you may recognize the “RED LETTER K”  from one of America’s discount retailers.  For those of you not familiar…it is the K from a K-Mart sign.  However, as Martin pointed out to me in this particular case the K is symbolic for King…Christ the King!

This green Ivy covered wall is an incredible contrast to the golden rod painted walls…I snapped this shot last February on a day trip into Houston, Texas.  I love the contrast of colors and textures.  But my favorite thing in the shot is the little window…
