So I entered a few more prints in the Loudoun County Photo Club Photography Competition (the three above). The theme was "Complementary Colors" (red/green; blue/orange; yellow/purple), which was quite a challenge for me, as I usually think in terms of a subject, rather than a concept, when I am behind the camera.

But I had a lot of fun, thinking about photography from the perspective of a concept. Usually I stumble across the concept when I am going through my images, like this one, from a series I took at the Jersey Shore, which is one of my favorites:

It just says "Solitude" to me. But what if I took my camera one day, and went to a park with the sole purpose of photographing "Solitude"? What would I come up with? It's an interesting idea.

Here are some images I did NOT submit, but which fit the complementary color theme:

  1. I tend to like the "outside of the box" photos. I would say I like your green lockers and red brick photo the best. Of course I LOVE them all.
