17: Sunlit Oranges and Winter Pool
Going on day 3 stuck at home with one sick kid and one cranky toddler, I felt pretty uninspired this morning. As I sipped my coffee, I stared at a stick of butter on a blue plate and blearily wondered if I could do something with that. Fortunately, my daughter brought an orange to me, begging me to peel it for her. I set the prepared orange on the kitchen table, and the slices glowed in the bright winter sunlight.
Second pleasant surprise of the day came when I dropped a few bins of clothes and toys off to sell at The Clothesline Consignment Sale, coming up this weekend. I took my camera with me, just in case. As it happens, the pool at the community center where the sale is held featured lots of blue. Bonus challenge: all these were shot through the chain link fence around the pool.
