If You Can't Laugh At Yourself ...

I shot these two photos near Sacre Couer last winter. I noticed the pigeon's eyes and feet kind of matched the door (oh, yes I did!), then spotted this woman in blue grays and maroon-ish browns a few feet away on the steps leading up to the cathedral. A clear indication I had either lost my mind or needed a break from the color hunt. It's one of the last series of photos I shot and a funny way to wrap up the color project. I had forgotten about the photos until recently and had a good laugh when I stumbled upon them.

Pigeons are disgusting to me, but somehow I love this shot! Good eye.

Love this. Laughed out loud. And will now keep my eyes open for similar musings in today’s jaunt around Paris.

Oh goodness…and there’s a wild wolf on the woman’s top with green diamanté eyes. It’s all very,very amusing. Well done Nichole.

Love these! Great commentary without needing words.

Love it! I’m always noticing how the color of two different things in close proximity match or nearly match. Funny, isn’t it.
