Yesterday my niece Alaska got out the hair dye. Her subject? My niece Avalon. Avie has dark hair so Alaska gave her some deep red highlights. My nephew, their cousin, Mitchell, wanted in on the action. He has blonde blonde blonde hair and wanted it blue. His mom, my sister Whitney, okayed the color change…
First of all, look at the face. Isn’t it perfection? He is about the most gorgeous child I’ve ever seen. Whitney took this picture with her cell phone and texted it to me. I e-mailed her text from MY phone to my e-mail and then downloaded the picture. Then I uploaded it on Flickr as I had to share it all with you. (Don’t you just love technology and the internet???)
Mitchell is six. The hair color is semi-permanent!! He plays baseball and is on the Dodger’s. He has a game tomorrow where his new hair will be revealed. Whitney warned him that it’s possible that some won’t find this new “do” as delightful as we do, but he was willing to take the chance!
Whitney says this picture doesn’t really do the blue justice. Better pictures with a “real” camera have been promised.
I wish they would have done this when I was visiting! I would have loved to see this in real life and in technicolor!
I wonder if his school has any rules about this sort of thing. I know some schools do. If his does, I see a buzz cut in this boy’s future!
1. an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, esp. for comparison or contrast.
2. the state of being close together or side by side.
This week was my choice for the topic! I picked “juxtaposition” because 1) I absolutely LOVE the word, and 2) I thought it was a challenge that could be interpretation in a bajillion ways. I had no preconcevieved idea of what I was going to do for it. The word just came into my head when I read that the choice was to be mine this week.
I took this picture this past weekend in Denver. When I took the picture I was only taking it because it tickled my fancy. I thought it would be way cute to have my little friends copy the big blue bear’s pose, all lined up. Only after I got home and was going through and catalogueing the photos from the weekend did it strike me that this would make an excellent and FUN submission for this weeks “Photo Friday”. So, here is “Big Blue Bear and Little Friends Peeking”!
From L to R that’s the Big Blue Bear, Abner, Stephanie, Colin, and Clare — in juxtaposition!
This Big Blue Bear is peeking in the windows of the Denver Convention Center. His body is made up purely of planes. Pretty cool. Designed by a computer.
The sculpture was unveiled in June of 2005 and is called “I See What You Mean”.
They are all interested in what’s going on in there!

Welcome to CordieB of the blog “Looking Through The Window“
(Jan’s entry – A Curious State of Affairs - uses a cool online tool called a Hockneyator to create a collage. You should check it out and snag that link to try this tool yourself!)
I’ll add anymore links should I find that there are any more new players out there!
Next week’s topic comes to us from Tina of SkyWindows and is “Religion”.

I was really glad when our latest Photo Friday assignment was to give us another shot at “Photographic Art”. I call this offering “Petrified Warhol”.
The original picture was of a petrified tree stump at the Florissant Fossil Beds in Florissant, Colorado. Taking a little bit of inspiration from Andy Warhol, I came up with this:
The colors are bit tamer than the ones Warhol used for his repetitive image silkscreens, but I like the overall effect. I think it looks more like a frozen waterfall than wood.
Please check out the other participants’ work!
I’ll add links more links if any more participants decide to play!
Next week’s challenge is a really good one! “It’s Life Imitating High Art”. We are to recreate an actual work of art in a photograph! Fun fun!
Hanukkah (or Chanukah), “the festival of lights”, starts at sundown tonight. Hannukkah starts on a different day pretty much every year. Last year it started on December 15th. Next year it will begin on the December 21st. It can start in early November or late December.
The most important tradition of Hanukkah, which last for eight consecutive days, is the lighting of the Menorah. One candle for each day.
