Sept. 29th Color Challenge


Sept. 29th Color Challenge

For the last color challenge of September, I challenge you to use white, grey and navy blue! I took this photo at the World War II Monument in D.C. last week when I took my mom there to visit. At first, I tried to cut the man out of the photo, but then I realized how much he added to the photo! There was a group there from Honor Flight and I just had to include him in my photo after all.

Journaling: I donít know who you are, but I want to thank you for your service. Itís your generation that had it so hard, fighting for your country without the modern day communication with your loved ones. There is just something about this photo that gets me every time.

    This is inspired and inspiring. Beautiful!
    Oh Carla, I have a lump in my throat after reading that... the inscription on the monument and the man standing in it. I do love your colours and the funniest bit is I nearly used those wonderful grunge blocks too (I never look at other people till I have posted mine so I wouldn't have known!)... I love the masculinity the grunge gave this and the cement feel against the harsh monument with the human spirit provided by the mystery stranger. Outstanding.
    I love the grunge bringing this together from top to bottom, bringing the focus into the middle. I agree that the photo is fantastic just as presented. Wonderfully done.
    Those templates look awesome, beautifully done, and wonderful journalling.
    Just lovely, Carla. I agree...the presence of the man adds a whole new depth to the page. Your journaling is quite touching. Thanks for the honest reflection on your page (written by a true military wife!). I think this man would be honored by your thoughts.
    Beautifully done! Gave me goosebumps wondering about exact things you journaled. Beautifully done....such a great tribute!
    Great journaling and awesome photos. The colors work so well with the photo. I love the template.
    I love the photo in photo, beautiful job! :wub:
