Lists of words for the Scavenger Hunt usually contain a color. This time, the color was a bit particular: “Pantone Color of the Year 2021”. It turns out that said Pantone color had not been released yet and, although it rarely happens, this year, there were two: Ultimate Grey and Illuminating (which is a bright yellow).
My initial idea was to take a B&W picture with selective coloring of a yellow bath duck. It turns out that basic yellow bath ducks are surprisingly hard to find – I found a lot of “themed” ducks, but no… archetypical bath duck. (And I don’t own one either.) Since this didn’t happened, I was on the lookout for yellow and grey things on one of my photo walks. It turns out that the light on this parking building was a very nice golden yellow, and that the building itself was concrete grey. Neither shows much on my picture of said building:
|Camera||Pentax K-1 II|
|Lens||Pentax D FA 24-70mm F2.8|
|Exposure time||1/80 s|
But a bit of editing put it back to how I saw it initially. I’m not super-satisfied, neither with this picture by itself nor by its use for the theme (it is pretty weak), but I’d much rather have a weak submission than no submission at all, so there! (Also, looking at it a few weeks later, I’m wondering what crossed my mind for that crop. It’s weird and distracting. Bah!)
And for the Scavenger album: the Color album.
