Photography 101 – Day Eleven: A Pop of Color

When we were preparing to sell our house, our real estate agent said we should paint the front door red. Why? Because it is inviting and makes the house pop. I think any color that is brilliant can make a photo pop.

I was sitting on the beach near Bogue, North Carolina a few years ago watching the waves roll in. Something in (or on) the water caught my eye!

Thanks for stopping by, y’all come back now.

  1. Hubby’s on allergy meds right now with the desert in bloom.

  2. Pollen on the water? I’d never seen something like that. Thank you for sharing Jerry.

  3. We have a pollen season here in Victoria – you’ll hear the pollen count broadcast on the radio each day. Luckily I don’t have allergy problems.
    Having said that I dont think I’ve ever heard of swells of pollen in the ocean. Right place right time eh Jerry

    • Tanks Cathy. Our local media also has pollen count in the weather forecast. Depending on where I am in the Spring, I have experienced severe allergic reactions to pollen. Sometimes the pollen is so thick, the morning dew is laden with pollen causing our vehicles to be tinted with pollen dust.

  4. I can always do without that pop of particular yellow color. Love the waves though. 🙂
