W/P Challenge 'Grey'


Life isn’t black and white. It’s a million grey areas, don’t you find?” – Ridley Scott

This weekend our Word/Photo Challenge is our monthly Colour Challenge, and for February the colour is Grey! (gray) 

  • The phrase “grey matter” refers to intelligence, brains, and intellect.
  • The saying “grey power” is used in reference to the power of the elderly or senior citizens.

Who knows what this is?

TELEVISION

I never was one to immediately buy new machines or technology. Same with television. At first, I visited my sister on a weekend and would watch a bit with her children. Then I went next door to my best friend who had a television. I usually went for the news and weather report. While watching my friend made us a cup of tea. Then I bought myself a portable black ad white TV. Those days the reception wasn’t good and that made that I still went for my evening cup of tea and news at my friend. I got married and we didn’t have a Television at first. After we moved into our own home we bought a “real” colored TV. Today I have a TV but am still not into sitting in front of it all the time. Yes, news I watch and then maybe a programme after that. Sometimes I’ll watch a movie depending on my mood.

Meaning :just a spot of red makes things beautiful.

Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision by David duChemin

David says:

“Vision- the more we engage the world, the clearer our vision becomes…

(The).. discipline of cramming your vision into a frame and make it fit. “

I met Kaffe Fassett last night


Last night was an awesome night. My friend and I sat in the front row of the theatre where Kaffe Fassett explained how and why he started his knitting and patchwork designs and patterns.

He wore the same shirt as in the video clip.

 

It was a wonderful experience to hear him speak and look at the examples of his designs.
