Day 296—Purple Memories

Once again, my new Flickr group, the “Our Daily Challenge” group, has focused my attention in a direction I would not have otherwise gone for my photo of the day. Today’s challenge is “purple.” I didn’t think I had much purple in my house and thought the only thing I could do was photograph a swath of purple paint or crayon. While rummaging in my closet for crayons and paints, I ran across the souvenir program from one of two Beatles concerts I attended in the 60’s. It’s purple! I knew instantly that had to be my photo; I still have the ticket stub from the nose bleed seats at the Cow Palace in San Francisco so I used that to add some pop (and context) to the photo.

So here’s the Fab Four minus one (Ringo didn’t fit in my view finder today) from 1964. I didn’t scream. Really, I didn’t!.

  1. Beautifully executed!!! And oh does thing bring back memories! I was at the one in 1965- I remember we could hardly hear them for all the screaming!
    Great idea for purple!
