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 dictionary.com 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.

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.
