One thing I've noticed in the pictures posted over the past few days is the prominent role played by color in the images. Your use of, interest in, color reminds me William Eggleston's use of color in his photographs. I like it.

Bill--thanks for the complimentary comparison. This brings up an interesting point about color photography. I don't like to have rules or prescriptions: you should do this or you shouldn't do that to make good pictures. But I do pretty strongly subscribe to the notion that when you make a color photograph, color should be essential to the picture, not an optional attribute. At least for my stuff. Even at that, I don't follow this as a conscious rule, but rather it works out that if I'm looking for pictures to make in color, I'm not going to be drawn to a subject unless the color is a strong component of the picture that's asking to be made.
