In sorting through photos for various projects, I came across a cache of purple.  Now I have the urge to buy some purple marbles at the toy store, an eggplant and some grapes from the farmer’s market, and maybe pick up some purple paint chips from the hardware store.  Who knows what purples may appear in the near future.  Maybe I’ll even photograph a purple crayon. 😉

A friend has been encouraging me to photograph this plant for a while.  In a guest post, he raised my awareness of the Calla photographs taken by both Robert Mapplethorpe and Imogen Cunningham.

They chose white blossoms.  For now, I think I will experiment with color.  I’ll let you know how it goes. 😉
