Just a quote for Friday- Deb's challenge

A few weeks back Deb at Paper Turtle posted this photo and set  a challenge to play with it, add a quote and link back to her for her weekly "Just a quote for Friday" meme.


Well, I did just that....

I loved how graphic the photo was and played with several ideas about light and the colour red. What came out most to me though was the geometric shapes and how great they would look if repeated. I also figured that an ombre effect couldn't go a miss! I fiddled with the photo several times to get varying shades of red and liked how abstract it turned out.

The quote was a bit trickier. I eventually stumbled on this one and it couldn't have been more perfect. It summed up the way I viewed that picture but also how Deb had seen it and how other bloggers had seen it and seen different things. 

Thank you for such a fun challenge Deb and for letting me use your lovely photo.

You are so clever, Abi. I absolutely love this! It's so fun to see the different versions of my photo, and your collage design is fantastic. The quote is perfect too!

I'm glad you got to experience what it's like for me each week as I search for a quote to go with a photo. Sometimes it takes a little while, but when you finally stumble upon the perfect one it's a happy moment.

Thanks so much for playing along. I love what you did here! :o)

Very nicely done Abi - I toyed with the idea of using the photo multiple times too, but opted just to take the easy way out. And I love the wisdom of Thoreau too.

I love this, Amy. Really inspired. The repetition and variation is both soothing and eye caching at the same time ...
