My Blue Period - moves to colour

By helenlinda
Thanks you for your clicks and comments on the first and second pictures in this short series.
Today I move into colour - big time WinkWinkWink
v1 the gate is still in place but half the fence has been removed
v2 the gate is relocated and there is a move from numbers to letters
I have of course used a colour burn to both shots to make the colours sing SmileSmile
Thanks for looking
Helen

So many memories... This is wonderful, Helen. I like the oblique composition, it hints at more.

Yes Helen on the lines I envisaged the squares provide a great lead in and both images adds to your portfolio of memories.

Whoa, there Helen! I can't keep up with this. Gates and fences that first aren't there, then are there, then gate without fence, fence with.....
...numbers that think they are letteres....my head's spinning.WinkGrin

So what is next? Your green, then red then yellow period? Where will it all end...kaleidoscopes?
Hmmm. Perhaps I shouldn't have put that idea in your head...

A great reportage Helen, thanks for keeping us updated. The colour really pops and adds some cheerfulness to what at first seemed a sad tale!

Nice one with the burn 'cos the colours stand out so well! V2 would make a beautiful square art card. Such wonderful colours and textures and just so full of life, you know?
