Day 11 Something Blue

And so the photography challenge continues. Some subjects have been more challenging than others. Today's left me with so many options it was hard to narrow it to just one. But I did, and I am, right now.

Day 11
Something Blue
30 Day Photography Challenge

(Why do I type this heading every time? Silly, no? It just seems more official, 
although there's nothing official about this challenge. It's just a personal pursuit. C'est la vie)

Thrift Shop Blue Jeans

Post Note: After I posted this I realized I had more to comment about it. 

As a woman of a certain generation in a western society, when one says "something blue" I immediately connect with the something borrowed, something blue of weddings. I'm not real big on weddings, although I've had two of them. But it was just so drummed into my skull that the simple words themselves evoke images of weddings and the importance of having something blue. I pooh-poohed that notion when I learned of today's challenge subject, but I would be less than honest if I didn't at least acknowledge it. This challenge is about images, and for the most part the images are from my day-to-day existence. Images, imagined and tangible are important. It's a form of shared communication. Okay. I'm done. Seriously.

  1. How come you aren't this chatty in person?
    I love the jeans and immediately thought, "Ah, she went with
    'something old, something blue.'"
