May is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month. The easiest way for me to explain why this is important to me is through this post I wrote in 2013. Purple is the colour for CF awareness and my photos each day in May will be purple, as I did in May 2014 and 2013. Let’s help to make CF stand for Cure Found. Please donate here (USA) or here (UK).

Project 365 ideas and tips…
Purple Pops!… I know colour pops are a bit twee these days, but sometime they just work. And for my photo of the day for CF Awareness month, and the need for something purple, a pop of that colour is perfect. To get this effect, you can either use a photo app, as I know that there are ones out there that do this sort of thing. Or, you can use a programme like Photoshop, add a black and white layer, and then erase out the area of colour you want to show from the original layer under that one.
Here is my photo for day 142…my son’s football boots, which he presented to me when I asked him to go and find me something purple for my photo today! Since the stripe along the side was purple, he said “you can make the rest black and white and leave the purple” Job done!
