Vibrant Colors

This week's challenge at Exposaroonie is Vibrant Colors. I have plenty of color in my life, what with the flowers, the yarn and the fabric, so I was looking for something different.

Construction Site

On Saturday, Len got a call from a tenant that the building's basement was flooding. We were in the Ann Arbor area anyway, so I went with him to check it out (it was due to an overflowing laundry tub and not a big deal). The Kellogg Eye Center is building a very large addition and the construction site is just across the street.


The site was very bright. I have to admit to a bit of Photoshop tweaking to get the photos to pop since the colors washed out in camera (levels and color balance), but I didn't feel a need to crop. I'm going to submit the top picture since it is less cluttered.

Slow Arrows

Another, less colorful, picture.

By the way, this is just down the street from where a good portion of my misspent early 20s played out. I vaguely remember writing about the house in my early blog days, but I can't find the post now. I have very fond memories of that house, but it is a parking lot now. Couldn't have happened to a better place.

Oooh!! Nice picture!!

I've given myself permission to vote for my favorite challenge picture even if it means that nobody votes for me. Yours is definitely one of my favorites this week! ;-)

Hi there, I stumbled upon your blog and just thought I'd leave a comment-- I'm liking the bright construction site pictures at the top of this post. Whoever thought that construction could look beautiful? Well done :)
