Weekly Photo Challenge: Layers

Layers.  Layers of cake.  Seemed an easy theme to respond to – and I’m sure the layers of cake will be posted by many other bloggers.

The only problem with this week’s challenge is knowing when to stop adding photos of layers.

And then there’s the question of whether or not to have the photos “peopled” or “unpeopled”.

jello

This took FIVE hours to make.  Seriously.   It has lived in my freezer for a time.  Not a cake but created in a bundt pan with many layers of jello, some layers mixed with yogurt to get the different tint.  When I taught visual arts I always had to remind the students the  how to make a tint by adding white.           No worries,this item it was not ingested.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple

What I discovered is I shoot a lot of red.

I blurred my eyes to spot purple in the archives.

Yes, I  made the rainbow jello to photograph.  It took 5 hours. I got the recipe from my daughter Laura who found it on the web here 

The one pictured is not spiked and no one ate it either.  It is still in my freezer to slice and photograph with light coming through the jello like stained glass.

Purple views, white balance setting askew but it works for the challenge.

A compendium of purple.
