24. Are We Not All Magpies?

Shopping Trip #1: I was in an electricals store looking at a row of mobile phones. Each phone had a card detailing all of the specifications. All except one that is. The brightly coloured phone on the end of the row had one word written on it's card, “pink”. How pathetic, I thought. Only an idiot would buy something just because of its colour.

Shopping Trip #2: A few days leter I was in the supermarket and my eyes were immediatly drawn to the bright hues of this cheapo stationery. Immediately I was spending my hard earned cash on something I didn't need just because of the pretty colours.

Lesson: I guess we can all be suckers for items that attract our attention.

These pictures. 1-3 were my idea. 4 and 5 were something that Cliff suggested I do, when he saw what I was doing.

We are all drawn to bright colors it seems. Mardi Gras, Las Vegas, Christmas lights, Easter eggs! Good post!

I've just seen these on my monitor at work and they don't look as good at all as they did at home - they look too bright and garish. I guess it's hard to know how a picture will look when presented in a different place.

Wonderful colours - very creative! It works well with lollies too - and you get to eat them :-)
