Color, color everywhere. Are you having fun exploring The Color Wheel? I am! There have already been so many great examples shared. There is still time to link in (below) or share your images in the Flickr pool on monochromatic, analogous and chromatic gradation. Read the original post here if you're not sure what I'm talking about, and then join in!

A quick note: Today is the last day to register for the fall Find Your Eye: Journey series of classes. The guided journey leaves this Sunday, September 25. I will leave you today with a few words from some of the lovely course participants from the Find Your Eye: Journey of Recognition course that completed last week. Their words speak so much better than mine!
"Photography has become my art form. No longer do I just shoot lots of images at events or family gatherings just because I own a camera. The "why" of taking photos is changed. I do this for me."
            -- Deborah T. Read more about Deborah's experience in her full post here.
"I’ve learned about my own photography. Through these classes I’ve been able to identify which elements of photography appeal to me. For instance, the shapes and forms of nature intrigue me. I also look for fascinating small details. As a result of the eye exercises in the class I’ve realized how important it is to look for and use light in my photographs. I've learned not to be controlled by rules and by other photographer’s opinions and photographs. I’ve learned to follow my instincts and my heart."
            -- Cathy H. Read more about Cathy's experience in her full post here.
"A loner by nature, the greatest gift of our time together was my connection with my fellow travelers. They constantly challenged me; supported me; commiserated with my frustrations; celebrated my triumphs and “ah-ha” moments. They shared their wisdom, their questions, their yearnings. I learned from their struggles, their insights, their truths. Together we dug deep; we had breakthroughs and realizations. We made each other smile. And think."
            -- Brenda. Read more about Brenda's experience in her full post here.
"I'm feeling more confident in my photography! Confident to continue to take photos that I'm familiar with... more willing to have a go at shots of things that I find harder (and even consider a bit of editing)... and being more confident to share myself through my photos... Basically, I'm inspired to keep on taking photos!"
