There are many things that I think of when it comes to something being vivid; memory, colour, dream, to name a few. The Daily Post set the weekly photo challenge of Vivid, with the creator talking about vivid colours at a Light Festival in Sydney. The challenge automatically made me think of a picture I took recently of a fly. Why? The colours and definition stay with you and as I looked at other images of flies I took that day, the vividness of this one kept coming back to me. I find the colours of the fly really interesting, as we usually think of flies being black. This fly how ever has; green, red and yellow tones. The black background also adds to the vividness of the colours, although not intended to be black, it is a by-product of shooting with flash. Apart from all the hairs I can see, what keeps this image clear in my mind is the dead insect under his middle leg. What do you think of my interpretation of the theme “Vivid” let me know in the comments below or just say hi if you like.
