Bouquet *Photo Challenge: Purple*

All week long I have been dreading this week’s color challenge of purple. 

I kept asking myself, what does Fall and Purple have to do with each other?  Kristi, Alicia and Rebecca must have gone crazy when they chose purple as a shade of fall!

I thought and thought and thought about it, trying to come up with an idea – but nothing.  Other than going to the grocery store and photographing a purple eggplant.  Why eggplant?  I have no idea because I don’t believe I’ve ever even had one!  However, that still was what came to mind.  Anyway…

Today I spent sleeping, procrastinating, surfing the net, tweeting, watching TV writing my final midterm paper for my Media & Communications class.  During that same time I was still thinking about purple, but I was also realizing that I would have no time to go out and photograph anything purple … I wouldn’t even have time to run to the grocery store to photograph those eggplants.  I was bummed, I had yet to miss a week, but it was appearing like this week would be the first.  I even tweeted Alicia & Kristi asking how long their submission linky would be open for this week’s challenge.  To my amazement, it was open until Wednesday at midnight.  Yay!  There was still hope for me not missing a week!

Before submitting my paper I ran to my mom’s house to have her proofread it along with a conference call with my school’s writing center to critique my paper.

[Side Note: the Writing Center was blown away, about how great my paper was!  If only she knew I threw it together in like two hours!  Makes me wonder what my paper would have been like if I had actually put time into Smile ha-ha!]

As I walked out the door to head back home, I noticed a new bouquet display hanging by the front door.  Guess what color that bouquet was?  [I’m sure you’re right, but ….] PURPLE!

I set my laptop on the front porch, still open with my midterm not yet submitted.  Grabbed my camera and began to take pictures.  However, I quickly realized it was way to dark outside to take quality photos, so I moved the bouquet inside , carried it up to my old bedroom and began shooting pictures!  Suddenly I had PURPLE PICTURES!! 

Once I got home, I submitted my paper and then couldn’t wait to work on my pictures and get them up and posted!!

Oh and YES, I finished and submitted my midterm!  YAY!!!

    So glad that you were able to get your midterm in and did so well on it too! And I’m glad that you were able to find some purple to photograph as well.
    Thanks for joining us in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. I hope you’ll be back again on Friday when we move on to our new theme, brown! Have a great day! :)

    I really need to take part of this challenge. It is not really fall here in vegas, so there are not really much shades of autumn.
