52 Wednesdays :: Green

It’s Wednesday again and this week my theme for 52 Wednesdays is GREEN.  St. Patrick’s Day is Saturday, which is likely the reason…. but I didn’t feel like going the obvious super green route.  Instead, I chose subtle green with a red jacket on my girl.  Red and green are complimentary colors by the way (AKA, not just for Christmas), which is something people learn in Design 102 if you go to school for art like I did.  Of course, these days one can save thousands of dollars and learn this on my blog… or a book, or Pinterest.  

Amidst my rambling about red and green, I’d like to point out that it is 3am (yikes, must get better about this).  I actually did not put this week’s theme off; I worked on it twice earlier in the week and didn’t like either outcome.  So today after school I asked Miss Eva if she would be my model and this is was my answer.  

Seriously.  Scary, right?!

Pretty sure, girl hates being my model.

I remember when she used to actually enjoy having her picture taken… but not now.  Not since her mom has been a working photographer for 3 years and a practicing one for several years before that.  Now she makes fists in the air and squished faces and whiny noises that all articulate, “No thank you.”

Really all she wanted was for me to observe her scheduled free time for pbs kids; however, I won her over for about 10 minutes with the coercion method of Eva = Mary Poppins with her green umbrella.

The Mary Poppins persona was able to morph into nice model girl.  With a little bit of dancing of course.

So by this point I was pushing my luck time-wise, but she let me capture this last one, which I LOVE.  And think it’s one of my new favorites. =)

After which, she skipped back into the house to do exactly what she had wanted to do since the moment I grabbed my camera.  Oh Eva, when did pbskids.com become more fun than your mom???

Next up for 52 Wednesdays is Traca Miller!  Be sure to continue in the circle to see everyone’s interpretation of green.
