A splash of color

I learned that Shaker's like color, though they also stress simplicity.  The desire for color seems contradictory to me as color, to me, represents differences, creativity and pleasure.  I found the colors, in this cabinet area to be striking.  Below?  Well...sheep, enough said.  Compared to my friends, who went to the same Shaker Village, my photos are "baaaddd".  Get it? Sheep..."baaadd"..ok I'm tired!

The nesting box image is great. I took a couple of them too, but more close up. I didn't even think of doing a wider view--I like it.

I agree that the Shakers' interest in color is surpising.

And I like the sheep image. Mom & baby, same positions... Nice.

These are great, Steve! I love the bright colors in the first image. I, too, was surprised to learn that the Shakers liked bright colors. The sheep image is wonderful! Terrific the white fence in the background. I can't wait to see more of your images from HSV!!!
