Week 14 Color Reveal {Brooke}

So, how is everyone doing? Do you still look foward to hunting the new color each week? Have you looked back at the begining and seen your work get better? I will say that I have noticed many of your photos improving week by week!

Well, this week we have a funny little color! Not sure if I quite got it or not, but since time doesn't stay still and it keeps on moving forward I am forced to just go with it! Also, I haven't given an added weekly challenge in a few weeks an thought I'd throw one out there! Why not try putting this weeks color find in a diptych or triptych?! A diptych is simply a pair of photos that go together, rather it be the same object taken at different angles or two photos that just complement each other. If you just want to read a little on the history of diptychs head on over to wiki. Also, flickr has some great groups dedicated to diptych, you can check one of them out here. There are some great ones that I like personally (which has nothing to do with this weeks color by the way, hehe), here, here, here and here.

Now for my diptych, containing this week's color...well at least as close as I could get to this week's color!

I just love this suitcase! Found it at a little antique shop here where I live for $5, of course I couldn't pass it up! I have to be honest, I haven't been out shooting for fun much, so it was nice to get out and be creative. Even if it's not super close to this weeks color I had fun! Although I think the darker parts of the suitcase are close to this week's color burnt sienna!

Happy color hunting!

*Update: A few links to some free diptych templates, here, here, here and here (that last link includes a facebook fix and resize action along with a branding action in addition too the diptych template)!


  1. I just love this! The trunk, the camera, all of it!

  2. Love the photo, and thanks for the links. I usually just make my own diptychs, but I'm glad to have the templates and actions! I'm loving this challenge, so thanks (again) for all the inspiration.

  3. Ooooo, I love this color! Your suitcase was an incredible find! Love it!
    I'm looking forward to trying the diptych!

  4. This is such a fun shot. Makes one really wonder about the traveler that used this suitcase...obviously a lot by the look of how worn it is! This week will be a fun challenge. I'm really looking forward to it.

  5. This is one of my faves when coloring landscapes!

  6. Lovely shots that made a terrific diptych!
    Your still life is a really nice composition.

    Now, Burnt Sienna - hmmmm.....

  7. I love your still life. So pretty and love the dyptichs too.
    Now I need a wave of creative inspiration to hit me!

  8. Absolutely LOVELY!! All of the elements in the picture are perfectly suited to each other, LOVE IT!! I want one of those suitcases too! The challenge for this week sound awesome, looking forward to it! Thanks for keeping is on our toes!

  9. I LOVE these pics. Holy cow if I could take pictures like that I'd quit my day job!! Thanks for the inspiration.
