You Capture: Colors

Last week, I saw a beautiful rainbow. It would've been perfect for this week's You Capture, but unfortunately, I almost crashed my car trying to take a picture of the rainbow and then it didn't even come out. Lesson learned: next time, pull over for rainbows.

So since I couldn't capture the rainbow, I looked around and captured some of the perfect colors I see on a daily basis.
I know dandelions are considered weeds, but I always have thought the bright yellow against green grass is so pretty.
A close up of my birthday flowers from Shane. Stargazer lilies are my FAVORITE flowers, followed closely by gerbera daises.
And because, to me, color always involves makeup, I snapped two shots of my makeup. Unfortunately, my traincase is a giant mess because I'm trying to find a new place to keep my makeup, but that's another story for another day.
My precious shimmer brick. Everyone should own one of these! I may or may not own every shimmer brick Bobbi Brown has ever made...

If you haven't already, please check out my giveaway featuring some gorgeous colored necklaces! And for those of you who love giveaways, check back tomorrow for another one!

You know, I love the dandelions too. And Lord knows, I get enough of them from my little ones!! :) Great shots!

Heidi said...

Nicely done! Love how you have "ridiculous" in your blog banner as the name of my blog is "this is ridiculous"!!

Great pictures! I think the ones of the make-up are my favorite, even though I hardly own any myself. Will you give me a make-over if I come work in your town?

And I saw a full rainbow the other morning as well and all I had was my iphone and it did not do a great job on rainbow picture taking.

*Lissa* said...

No way! MY favorite flowers are stargazer lilies, with my second fave being gerbera daisies! ;o)

I love the makeup! I'm a total makeup fiend too.
And the dandelions are lovely. Weed, shmeed.

I think maybe instead of "suphero by night" you are "make-up artist by night," no? hee hee...

Love the flowers!

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

OH - I love your makeup - mine is so boring - I have like 4 simple pieces only!

Carrington said...

Oh man, I need to start the You Captures! These are great, and girlfriend- can you share a little love with your glorious makeup! I'm so jealous! Can you be my makeup artist? That would be so fun!

imadramamama said...

I've always like dandelions, too!

The Animator's Wife said...

Very colorful captures. Oh, and happy birthday! (It must not have been that long ago, cause those flowers are still gorgeous!)

Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry said...

These are wonderful. You would have loved the lobby of the hotel we stayed at in San Fran, they had the largest arrangement of flowers I had ever seen and they were filled with stargazers! (among other lovelies)

I need that brick. give it to me, k? bye.

april said...

Man, don't crash your car!! That would be bad!

I love stargazers too! I really hope mine blooms soon!

Mommy In Pink said...

sunnymama said...

Wonderful colour pictures! I think dandelions are pretty too :)

Jenni Jiggety said...

I have a shimmer brick! Are those mineral eye shadows I see there???

I love mine! I have a bit of an addiction to everyday minerals...

--It's Your Movie-- said...

Holy makeup, lady! I'm jealous.

Christy M. said...

Dandelions are most definitely not weeds. Especially when they are given, by the handful, by sweet little boys :)

Love all of your captures so much this week! So glad you didn't crash your car trying to capture the rainbow.

My faves are the makeup! LOVE THEM!!

cassie said...

I love the brilliant green/yellow contrast of the dandelions. I love how dandelions are so persistent in their fight for the right! They don't care if they're considered weeds. (I've always wondered who made up that rule... the category... of who would be weeds.) The make-up shot is so creative... an artist's palate! Just a touch of COLOR here and THERE and a new woman emerges... all because of COLOR! Splendid week of photography!

Oh, Erin... I love your blueberry memories. I am so happy and filled with joy that someone I love has the same warmth attached to a little berry. That's what life is all about... the simple,simple,simple moments surrounded with warmth that become memories. I can just see you and your new little one (either inside or outside!!) blueberry picking this year. Oh, you MUST!! And just think of the photos opportunities!! I am actually thinking that I must get my grandkids up to York Beach, Maine this summer... !!
