I was sitting there, staring up, and the tree above was practically glowing against the aqua sky, backlit by the sinking sun. It was MAGIC.
Unfortunately, my crapola camera couldn't quite capture it. That's it...I am going to make the trek to pick up my FIXED CAMERA tomorrow. I can't take any more of this!

Alright...who is going to try out Schlieren photography (which you can actually do yourself at home!), and report back to me??? Just cool would it be, to photograph the invisible like this??? :D Apparently, it is completely able to be done by the average shmoe with a decent camera and a $50 piece of equipment off eBay. Come on! You know you want to know what your sneeze looks like! You know you do! :p

GREEN: Because of its association with nature and foliage, green in design can be used almost like a neutral colour: greens never clash with red or pink roses, yellow sunflowers, lilacs or bluebells.
RED: With its aggressive, stimulating and sexy nature, assertive attention and provoking action, the red is impossible to ignore.
ORANGE: Inheriting some of the drama of red, orange is tempered by the friendly humour of yellow. It’s the colour that stimulates the appetite and radiates with warmth and vitality.
PURPLE: It’s perhaps the most enigmatic and complex colour, with the range of meanings – from royal to elegant to spiritual to mysterious. Purple is often favoured by very creative and eccentric people who are not afraid of appearing daring.
BLACK: People see black as the most dramatic, heavy, powerful, classic colour with an up-scale look. Because of its extreme contrast to white, black and white is the quintessential combination of depth and clarity, power and innocence.
Okay...I wear those colors, especially green, red and black, almost exclusively. I am not sure who is laughing louder..me, or the people who know me. :p
All color descriptions pulled from a very cool post on color over on InspirationBit.

Makes me feel a bit better about my complete inability to be truly original. :p
