75/365 Purple petunia
When I painted the rooms of my house, I was mindful of the moods I wanted to cultivate in those rooms. Kitchen: lively, cheery. Bathroom: energizing (for those early mornings), happy (for those early mornings). Bedroom: calm, serene, peaceful. Office: creative, inspiring. I love my bright, bold colors.
When I spent time in New Orleans last year and volunteered for Habitat for Humanity, they had the same idea: paint the new houses bright colors that will bring life back into these devastated neighborhoods. I don't want the outside of my house to be this shade of purple, but I get where they're coming from!
Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/400s, f/4 at ISO 100 at about 6:00 p.m.
