    Great pictures everyone! I had some trouble with the "Blue" theme too - I just didn't have any 'blue' moments this weekend!! I'll post mine tomorrow.

    Lots of great competition here!

    I'm not sure if I'm doing this right as it is my first post, so I hope I get it right.

    This is our youngest Bouvier, Lena. She's probably pouting because she can't read the ON.

    Hey Kevin,

    Glad you're joining us. Looks blue to me. Poor Lena. I'll bet she can read. She just can't turn the pages (no opposable thumbs).

    Blue

    Here is my submission.

    I don't particularly want to explain why it says Blue to me. Does anyone feel like an explanation is important to viewing the photo?

    Important? Probably not. . . . Most explanations (of any kind, not just these phots) are more important to the speaker than the listener.

    I'm OK with them, but I admire those who feel that the picture speaks for itself, which it should--explanation or not. Having said that, "blue" has proven to be the most challenging these so far.

    I particularly admire Voni's approach this week. Inspiringly creative. Poor little feller. When I hit my thumb with a hammer, the result is also blue, but that refers the stream of obscenities spewing from my mouth making all sailors and teamsters within earshot blush.

    I saw many opportunities while riding to capture a shot related to this theme, but I just wasn't in the mood "to stop and smell the roses" this weekend.

    You meet the nicest people on a BMW. Met Jim and Linda Melanson of Latham, New York at the big tent sale Orvis holds in Manchester, Vermont.

    No. I don't think so. How it makes me feel is what it is. That would be even more of what it is to me in B&W.
    But it is interesting, too, how it makes the artist feel. That's something else and it might give me a different view.
    My other bike is a BMW.

    Boxergrrlie's original question has led to some really interesting discussion. . . . Great thought and arguments all the way around.

    Blue

    The inspiration for these two shots came from washing the car, or to be honest, not washing the car.

    Blue Too

    When I shoot something I almost always see several more shots, here is the last one. These two shots were taken in my driveway. A work light served as the light source and a piece of white cardboard pulled from the trash was my reflector.
