Sunday Stills - Color


This weeks Sunday Stills challenge is simply color. A good choice during the dead of winter when color isn't what permeates our senses. This church steeple is reaching for that blue sky, which is an unusual site in January in the Pacific Northwest. We've had some beautiful days here on the North Coast this week.
The picture below is a few of the very colorful meters that are in front of a thrift store here in Astoria. They really pop-out at you as you drive down Duane Street.

I've never seen meters like that. I thought they were photo-shopped. Nice shot of the Church.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Paula. Love all the color.

And also enjoyed the post on tolerance. My daughter would like that one, too. :)

Both are great photos, but I love the meters. What a way to make boring, mundane stuff pretty.

Hi Paula -
Your 'stills' photos are fantastic. You did a great job. Yes, the Oregon Coast weather has been the best this weekend. We just returned from the Central Coast and we couldn't have asked for more. Will share tomorrow on my blog. It was 'Chamber of Commerce' weather!

What beautiful pictures!

Adrienne said...

Very cool pics - I have a friend in Astoria - I'm going to send her this link to see if she recognizes these. She just moved there (Coast Guard) so it will give her something to do!

The church is my favorite. I love the color and texture!

I love the idea of color... seems like all I see here in Wisconsin lately is white and gray :-/

Tipper said...

Love the colorful meters!

Paula,

I'm glad you are having blue skies. We are having another deep freeze here after the snow of the weekend. Just a typical southern Ontario winter.

Those meters are delightful...such color and a great subject for your theme.

Blessings,
Mary

As always... great pics! You should be working for the chamber of commerce, Paula!

How have I missed those meters on Duane???!!! I think the aquadar on my car needs some tuning.
