The photographs in this book were inspired by an invitation to participate in a photo show with the simple over riding visual theme of Color. I decided to expand on that motif, which led into delving into my archives, taken over many years, and these images represent the lightest and brightest photos from my image bank.

When I was a child I was disappointed that the small box of crayons that I had been given to make pictures with only had 8 colors. Later I was able to convince my mother to buy me a much larger box that held 64 crayons, each one a different color, with a sharpener built into the box. Now many decades later, it is possible to purchase a box that contains 120 crayons. Life is really all about increasing the number of available colors to illustrate your life and then using the whole box of crayons to tell you story. Not to be outdone, a standard computer now offers a choice of 16.9 million colors, each one just a mouse click away on the screen of your life.
