It’s all about colors just recently. This week, Nancy Merrill has chosen Contrasting Colors as her topic for the Photo A Week Challenge and, using the color wheel in her post, orange and blue would appear to be quite a good combination for this subject. images include a stained glass window by Marc Chagall at the Chicago Art Institute, a table top in a coffee shop in Evanston, restaurant umbrellas in Texas, and a table setting at The Flower & Garden Show in Rosemont as well as scenes from the Chicago Botanic Garden, the 63rd Annual Chicago Powwow in Elk Grove Village and Goebbert’s Pumpkin Farm in South Barrington.

This week, Cee has chosen Black & White as the colors for her Fun Foto Challenge. These days it’s relatively easy to convert images to black & white provided you have the right picture. Finding pictures of things that are primarily black & white without doing any kind of manipulation was rather more difficult but here are some random shots that seemed to fit the bill. I took several pictures of the young man playing the xylophone but although this one wasn’t necessarily the best, I chose it because I noticed that the woman crossing the street behind him was also wearing a black & white shirt.

I’m a city girl at heart and although I’ve lived in the suburbs for many years now, there’s nothing I love better than a trip downtown, which is why I was so pleased to see the subject for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, Cityscapes. Many thanks to Patti for providing us with this challenge. Although I was born in London, I now live near another great city, Chicago, which is where these images were captured.

This week, Cee has chosen Colorful Monotones as the subject for her Fun Foto Challenge. I don’t know if the ceilings in the Minnesota State Capitol Building are strictly monotone but the golden glow seems to give them that overall appearance.
