Ready, Aim...


Here is an example of color that caught my eye at a Paris flea market. The bold graphics have the energy and colors of a Lichtenstein print. I couldn't possibly have arranged the books any better than the bargain-hunters had left them.

Now, does the photo have deeper meaning? I guess it depends on the viewer. For me, the bold letters "FEU" (fire) were simply an invitation to shoot back. Hence, the photo is my purely visceral reaction to a colorful graphic assault.

My invitation to you this month is simple: seek out color, shoot it, and show us what you have captured.

Check out what people have done so far this month—really great stuff—and share your own work.
