In the Hues of Walter Mitty

You all have seen this lovely sister of mine before. But you probably haven't seen her since she got her braces off, grew taller than me, and donned new Christmas clothes in the most perfect colors (grey-blue and bright red).

For a family outing a few days ago, we went to the movies and ended up seeing The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Positively everything about that movie was wonderful-- the cinematography, actors, music, story and the colors. Libs and I noticed that at the beginning, the color scheme is mostly grey, blue, and grey-blue. From his clothes to his workspace, etc. But later on, as he branches out on adventures, this quiet, awkward guy becomes bold. In stead of choosing the blue [familiar] car, he chooses the red one. His new clothes are red, etc. Red also matches the LIFE logo on the magazine for which he works. As he starts living life, the world becomes more colorful and exciting, and he starts living his dreams in stead of just dreaming them.

All that to say,  (a) red and grey-blue are two of our favorite colors and (b) The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is now one of our favorite movies. So when Libby put on this outfit, I obsessed over it until I realized why I liked it so much. And with that, we took the cameras and her Starbucks and shot for fifteen minutes. The result: some of my favorite pictures yet. Enjoy!

 I hope you all have a wonderful new year!
