Creativity Boot Camp Assignment #1

Our assignment was "ivory". The first thing that came to mind was a piano and an elephant. We no longer have the piano we were storing and I don't plan on going to the zoo anytime soon. Plus I don't think those would really be thinking outside the box.

I looked up the word ivory on and I chose the 2nd definition:
this substance when taken from a dead animal and used to make carvings, billiard balls, etc.

So that gave me the idea to take a picture of our bumper pool balls. I don't know if they're made from ivory or not, but it's something different for me to take a picture of.   Our bumper pool table is stored outside under our patio.  I like how you can see the reflection of the patio posts.  Also Miriam assisted me by holding the pool cue for me while I took the picture.

Interesting version of "ivory". You can't beat the good ol' dictionary! Feel free to head over to my blog to visit. I'll be following yours.
Thanks for sharing!

Aaah. Hadn't thought of that one. Nice capture!

I looked up ivory in the dictionary as well - and I was displeased with the definition - it's too lovely of a color to just be narrowed down to the substance in teeth. Like the shot! I haven't played pool in so long, maybe it's time!

What a fun interpretation... I'm going to take inspiration from you and think more outside the box next time! That's a great picture.
