Another fun challenge. You can capture the color purple in so many ways.

You can photograph a still life, flowers (macro or not), landscapes (think the beautiful purple tinges between the Golden and Blue hour), cityscapes (think light trails as the sun has just gone down leaving a purple hue in the sky), bokeh lights, abstracts, live music photography (think purple lighting), use colored purple gels on your lights, or people wearing purple clothing. 

Alternatively, you may like to do some purple split toning in post-production.

There are so many options!

So, check out these pics to give you some ideas, have fun, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
