Team-Up Thursday: Week Forty Seven (NEW)

NEW dip

Happy 2011, all you Team-Up people! And welcome back. I hope you had a restorative break, one that renewed your creativity and left you hoping it was Thursday again.

Melody and I tackled NEW this week, an appropriate theme for the new year, and ended up with contrasting photos. In fact, when I was creating my diptych, I couldn't decide whether to put a white border (which looked better with Melody's shot) or a black one (which helped mine). It seems that the contrasting tones in our photos are echoed in the contrast in subject matter. I think Melody is ringing in the new year with sparklers, and I am looking at the new year through the rain on my windshield.

But that's the fun of Team-Up, isn't it? Looking at different creative visions of each theme and seeing them paired up. What do you have to offer us this first week back?

Don't neglect our flickr pool, and be sure to leave a link here in comments.

Next week, Melody and I will be doing ALL IN A join us or pick your own theme. See you then:).

Hi Megan...Happy New Year
Yes, I really love that most of the time we get different perspectives on the same theme - that is part of the fun of it...I had a great break and really feel that it is going to be a very creative year...We did "BOTTLES" this week which was challenging but lots of fun...Lots of love

Lovely contrast. Cara and I did New this week too.

We have also picked up the TUT this week with Colour as our theme ( Thanks for being the inspiration behind this challenge, I have LOVED being a part of it for the last 20 odd weeks.

Awesome photos as always, I love the contrast in ideas but they way they both work so well for the theme.

Great to be back!

I found your blog by way of Lee Currie in Oakville! i am really excited about your team up thursday. I have tried finding an email address for you ladies, but seemed unable. I would love to participate in your project and I think it would be cool for you to pair me up! can you email me so i can send my questions about one of my projects?

I would love to be paired with someone in scotland or ireland if there are any!

Happy NEW Year! Refreshed, renewed, hopeefully.

Megan, it might be that I'm watching CSI right now but your pic is kinda creepy yet peaceful. Someone is waiting to jump out at me, I can feel it.

Very different but I really like them together. I love the sparklers, we did them as well. Your b&w is done beautifully Megan! I like the white frame as well. Totally flaked this week! I can't wait to get back in to the swing of things next week.

That is what I love about this project, sometime the photo's are so similar and sometime so different.

Jen and I are in this week with the theme New as well.
