"How wonderful yellow is. It stands for the sun." ~ Vincent Van Gogh
I chose the color "yellow" for my 400th post because it is the color of optimism and happiness. Today, I am an extra-happy person because I am now "officially" retired. I moved my retirement up a few weeks because I have things I would like to do before I take two upcoming trips - I will schedule Crisfield posts using the Blogger schedule tool while I away.
FYI: I bought a negative scanner and brought home a few thousand negatives I had stored at our son's house. Most of them are from my "old days" as a photojournalist, and I have set up a separate blog site to post these non-Crisfield photos. You photo bugs might enjoy visiting my new site. Posts on that site will be random for awhile, as I have a lot to do, and a lot of negatives to go through. I hope to get my banner up this week.
Back to my theme: The color yellow is considered to be the happiest color in the color spectrum. I know I was happy when I saw this this yellow balloon, tied to an open-house sign, bobbing up and down in the wind in this field of yellow. I hope it makes your "Blue Monday" a little happier.
I would have liked to have lingered and captured the flowers better, but there are times that capturing the moment is more important than how you capture it. I was rushed, headed to another assignment -my last- on Saturday, when I took this photo.
And no, I will not not be shutting this blog down.
