I’ve determined that photographing purple is usually best in the shade. There are some exceptions like the sweet peas featured above. The sun seems to wash out the intensity of the color. I need to learn a lot more about photography (some day) to conquer the purple dilemma. Until then, I’ll try to provide a bit of shade.Here’s a package of Giant Violet Queen Zinnia seeds in the shade of the garden shed. The purple really punches out there doesn’t it? These were planted in the front yard yesterday. They were half price down at the Rite Aid. It’s an easy gamble.See. The Santa Rosa plums are getting ripe. Underneath that haze on the skin of the plum is a beautiful reddish-purple, delicious piece of summer taste explosion. How do I know? Cuz. I had one yesterday. It had dropped. I picked it up, wiped it off and enjoyed a surprise treat. Delicious gamble.
Yesterday I picked the winner of the Belmont Stakes – Ruler On Ice. Love the colors (pink/orange). I won $2,400! It was a fantasy gamble. Dang it.
