Color your World: Cotton Candy & Dandelion

***

This week for CYW we are looking at things with the color of Cotton Candy (pink), and Dandelion (yellow)

Sad to say, the Crayola Crayon known as Dandelion was retired after 27 years in the crayola box, in 2017. It was first introduced in 1990.

I’m glad I still have a box of them that does include the Dandelion crayon.

***

The photos show:

  • Cotton Candy Crayola Crayon
  • A package of actual sweet cotton candy at the store (clear plastic cup with a flamingo & lettering)
  • Streaks of vivid pink streaks of clouds against a very blue sky
  • A vase of pink Hyancith flowers
  • Cotton Candy facts – hue family is red – introduced in 1998
  • Pink Cotton Candy color round
  • My art of the word Cotton Candy in pink, outlined in black
  • A really old Christmas card with a pink ornament

FLOWER POWER?

Standard

FLOWER POWER?

 

Scene: Busy Classroom

Characters: Tommy, the student, and a solar powered flower

***

The teacher gave the students an assignment. They are quietly working at their desks. Tommy is looking around the room, thinking of something to write his essay about, and tapping his pencil on the desk.

Tap – Tap – Tap

FLOWER: Pssst, Tommy!

TOMMY: (looking toward the window sill) …Huh?

FLOWER: Don’t look so startled. It’s just me, the Flower. (nodding his flowery head) Yeah, I can talk.

TOMMY: (looks around the room to see if anyone is watching him) …But…how can you talk? You’re just a toy flower.

FLOWER: I’m a magic flower. Don’t worry about it.

TOMMY: What do you want?

FLOWER: I want you to write about me. You can make up some stuff, but make sure you mention I can only talk to you.

TOMMY: (smiling) Okay, but they won’t believe me. (starts writing on his paper)

FLOWER: (humming a little tune…waiting)

TOMMY: I’m finished writing. Can you read, too?

FLOWER: Nope, you will have to read it to me.

TOMMY: (reading) … Once upon a time there was a fake flower that could talk.

FLOWER: Fake? Fake? I’m as real as you are. Scratch that out.

TOMMY: Fine…(scratches through the word fake, then writes more words)

FLOWER: Well…are you done with my story?

TOMMY:  (writes ‘the end’ on his paper) …Okay, listen to this, Mr. Flower. “Once upon a time there was a toy flower that could talk to me, but only in this classroom. He was a pretty flower, but sorta weird. I think we’ll be friends forever.”

FLOWER: (smiling) I like it, Tommy! I think we’ll be friends forever, too.

TEACHER: (Looking over at Tommy) … “Tommy, stop your daydreaming, and get busy writing your paper. It has to be finished by the time the bell rings.”

TOMMY: (sighing) … “Yes ma’am.” (starts writing about a talking flower)

THE END

52 WEEKS PHOTO CHALLENGE – EMPTY SPACES & DEPTH OF FIELD

Standard

52 WEEKS PHOTO CHALLENGE – EMPTY SPACES & Depth of Field

***

These two weeks for the challenge we were to find photos that show an empty space around the main subject of your photo, and then photos that show a depth of field. I’m not familiar with how to do the depth of field ones. I don’t have a macro camera (?) so just had to find something that was a sort of close up of something, with a blurred background. These probably were not what they were looking for, but sort of close…maybe? 🙂
