Color Factory Houston
My wife is a color fanatic. If she had her way, we would have all of the colors at every turn in our lives. Some people like earthy tones or they’re like Batman that only work in black or very, very dark gray. That’s not my wife. For her birthday I took her to the Color Factory in Houston. She had been wanting to go for some time so she had already fan-girl’ed out about it, but I had no clue what to expect. Needless to say, I was surprised at just how cool the exhibit was. They had their stuff together from the moment you walked in until the very end.
Each room had a different theme and purpose behind it but it was all celebrating color and art. Just about every room had something for you to participate in and some action to get in on. Photobooths were littered throughout the building so you could quickly snap some selfies or ussies or whatever the kids are calling it these days. Imagine being so old you’re going to one day say, “I remember the first time we used the word ‘selfie’ back in ’08.” And how could I forget to mention the ball pit? Jumping into that pit brought back memories of the old school Ronald McDonald days. Although, it did hurt a bit more than I remember.
I took all of these photos with the Fujifilm X-T3 with the Fujinon XF 18-55mm lens. If you’re looking for a mirrorless camera that won’t break the bank, I recommend checking it out. And you probably already guessed it, but all of the editing was done in Adobe Lightroom. The beautiful lady in the shots is none other than my wife who graciously allowed me to shoot her…with my camera. If you’re in the Houston area (or NYC apparently) check out the Color Factory!
