Shapes

It's always lovely to spot a shape in the clouds.
 ( I totally see a whale! ) 
Instead of looking up to find shapes, I thought it would be even more fun to look down.  So I grabbed some colorful tape and went looking for shapes on the street. 
I found a TV in the dirt,
a mouse in the grass,
and a kite in the cracks!

that is too cute, love it!

Emily said...

Marvelous photos! Your work spreads so much joy!! Keep it up! The world needs more people like you!

In the first image, I see a squirl with a nut smack dab in the middle. Neat idea with the tape. I do that all the time, but i've never thought to make anything of all the shapes. My husband and I have a koi fish in the old hardwood floor, right outside our apt door.

you seem like a person that everyone strives to be.... do you have any bad qualities?!? your heart shirt is adorable, it totally suits you :)

but i cannot understand the tv, help me out!!

colormekatie said...

Thank you! The antenna on the TV is actually black dirt on the street. I added the rest of the TV with my tape. I hope that makes more sense!

Amy said...

Eliza said...

You and the shapes you see remember me of "A beautiful mind" (the movie). I look for shapes between the stars, though I remember I have seen shapes between the clouds also! It's a beautiful and funny game, especially when you are the only one seeing things or creatures on the sky, in the water or on the ground! Thank you for blogging about the wonderful world you see. Most of people see and write about the ugly sides of life, but it also has a beautiful side and we should more often remember this.

¿Son imaginaciones mías?

Gracias a tí, sé que no es así.

Very cool and creative!

nikki said...

I see an upside-down ram's head on the top left! And that squirrel! Though the whale looks more like a seal pup to me (I think its because it's a bunch of fluffy clouds!)

The mouse has boots! :D Cutenessssss!

Thanks for sharing Katie! xo!

Love your view of things outside of the box.

I'm visiting my daughter, and while we were walking the first night I was here, I got totally startled by what looked like a hillside on fire - it was actually the red twilight behind some trees, but my perceptive was off because it was an unfamiliar landscape (also I'm getting old and my eyesight is getting poorer and poorer!).

Again, you have a fresh creative view on so many things - thanks for sharing with all of us.

Fiona said...

A Day in the Life said...

I loved this post and felt very inspired! I wish I would have carried some brightly colored tape with me today because I found a some dried gum spots on the cement that resembled a smiling face. definitely reminded me of reading your blog! Thanks for inspiring me to look more carefully for fun shapes and images all around!

jessD said...

I am amazed at your ability to transform something as unexciting as a crack in the sidewalk into such a creative image. Your use of bright colors and fun content can lift anyone’s spirit.
