Color Images of the Mind Revealed


Week 8's prompt is COLOR

imaginative
artists see what others don't ...
then share honestly

images like these
amaze and delight as I
seek and find online


I wish my mind could
envision and create such
vivid imag'ry!

Colorful Comeback

Thought for Today

I think each of these is "vivid" and "imaginative". I am pulled toward the first, as a favorite. Well done!

Karen said...

Incredible, storyteller! Absolutely breathtaking!

storyteller said...

MyBellavia – The 1st is MY favorite too … but I enjoyed both and felt including each created nifty ‘illustration’ of my three-verse Haiku this morning.

Karen – Thanks! Finding these images ‘saved’ me on this week’s OSI prompt once again. I’m delighted with Photobucket ;--)

I appreciate each of you visiting and sharing your thoughts this morning. Hope you’re each having a delightful day!

Seeing what others do not and sharing it is quite a gift--but receiving the gift is a gift back to the artist! These are great. Thanks for another brilliant post!

These are wonderful and "reflect" the theme magnificently... and I love the words you have shared along with them. Just grand!

Those pictures are breath taking. Just beautiful.

SandyCarlson – Ah … how validating for each then, right? Thanks for enlarging my perspective with your comment.

Raven – I’m delighted to know you think so ;--)

Sandy – Thanks … I can’t imagine how you have time to visit today, but I appreciate that you did so.

Mike – I’m happy you enjoyed today’s post.

Zoya – Isn’t it wonderful how we each help one another as we share our thoughts each week in responding to these themes? Thanks for letting me know how I helped you in your comment today ;--)

Betty – I couldn’t agree more … and I appreciate folks at Photobucket sharing these images so generously.

I’ve not had time today for much blog visiting … but I fully intend to see how everyone’s interpreting the prompt this week as time permits over the next few days. I appreciate all of your comments and hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday.
Hugs and blessings,

Joyce, Lori, Mama Zen, and Eve
Thanks to each of you for visiting and commenting on my OSI post this week. I had fun creating it and am pleased with the results, but I’ve not had time to visit the other participants to see what they did. I guess I’ll get to it over the weekend? I hope you’re all having a wonderful week.
Hugs and blessings,

You may like Moodflow.com's pictures.

Go to his main page and click through his 3 screensaver pictures too (the ones with the tiny pictures.) You can see them larger if you click on them.

storyteller said...

Melissa – Thanks so much for the link to ‘Moodflow’s photos’ … they ARE wonderful indeed! I’m trying to decide if I’m willing to give up my ‘Stonehenge’ screensaver for his series of awesome sunsets!
Hugs and blessings,

He had a website for a long time and has only recently moved to a blog. There aren't that many blog entries, so click through them all and you might find a free picture you like that you can use as a wallpaper (then you can keep your current screensaver if you like ;) ) There are a few that are very similar to the pictures you posted.
