Photography Challenge - Week 3

For this week's theme, the Photography Challenge at A Step in the Journey highlights bold colors.  I have always loved black and white photos with a little pop of color, so this week I took the opportunity to play around with this effect. 

One day I noticed that my brand new blue pedicure (Towel Boy Toy by China Glaze for anyone who might be interested) and my favorite sandals made quite a colorful combination, so I snapped a quick photo while standing outside on my patio.  Using Picnik, I gave the colors a tiny boost, changed the photo to black and white, then spent waaaaay too much of the baby's naptime re-coloring the accent areas.  I love the combination of the hot pink plaid with the bright turquoise toenails against the black and white background.  The colors really pop!

Next week's theme...dinner.  Hey good lookin', what ya got cookin'?
