Go Blue (or, Go Maize)

I completed my first visual assignment last night.  I chose to use the color splash on the University of Michigan football helmets.

Color Splash Take 2: FLAMINGOS

Just a Hint of Color and Love

I think these pictures are beautiful. I love black and white to begin with, and when you take a part of the picture and make it color, it stands out and emphasizes that particular part. I had my sister take this picture one Easter for me. The little boy holding…

Red stripe

Elmo’s lonely
