I had WAY too much fun with this photo challenge! I adore my precious fur baby and I absolutely loved following her around with my camera and taking photos of her. I don't think she enjoyed it near as much as I did, though she loved chasing the lights when I turned the flash on. This photo challenge made me realize how difficult it can be to take photographs of animals. They don't go where you want them to go and they are very determined to do their own thing. Photographing animals is a lot about luck, you have to just capture the right moment when its there because you can't create those moments.
I found this photo challenge to be super interesting. It forces you as the photographer to look for the connections with things on a deeper level. Once you have found a connection between your objects, you then have to think about how your subjects interact with each other. For this particular photo, the colours are a connection point. The purple background compliments the purple flower while the green of the stem works well with the colour of the marbles. These similarities really enhance the image, making it pleasing to the eye. On a deeper level, the green of the marbles mock the patterns of a flower, causing the marbles and the flowers to interact in a really meaningful way. The real flowers stand out in the group of man made objects. Both are quite beautiful, but attention is drawn to the real or true object in my image.
