Day 229~366

The meaning of colour 6~Pink Pink is a combination of the color red and white, a hue that can be described as a tint. It can range from berry (blue-based) pinks to salmon (orange-based) pinks. Its symbolism is complex and its popularity is subject to so many influences. Depending on your age and culture, you may remember pink Cadillacs, pink flamingos, Pink Floyd, the Pink Panther, and the pink triangles of the Third Reich (which were used to identify male homosexuals). In almost every culture, one stereotype emerges: pink is associated with girls, blue with boys. Unfortunately, there is no…

Day 225~366

Yellow is the most luminous of all the colors of the spectrum. It’s the color that captures our attention more than any other color. In the natural world, yellow is the color of sunflowers and daffodils, egg yolks and lemons, canaries and bees. In our contemporary human-made world, yellow is the color of Sponge Bob, the Tour de France winner’s jersey, happy faces, post its, and signs that alert us to danger or caution. It’s the color of happiness, and optimism, of enlightenment and creativity, sunshine and spring. Lurking in the background is the dark side of yellow: cowardice, betrayal,…

Day 220~366

We had a visit from Shelley and the kids this afternoon so I took a few pictures of Liddy, just love the punk hair 🙂   also the theme was ‘sport’ in the Sunday challenge group, so I did one of my old 10~pin bowling trophies from days of yore. and finally, the colour shot today.. Analogous colors are any three colors which are side by side on a 12 part color wheel, such as yellow, yellow-orange,orange. Usually one of the three colors predominates.  

Day 198~366

Yipahoo today we had sunshine!  I had to go out for a walk to take photographs for the Sunday challenge group, and as always took a few (!) on the way there and back, The challenge was to use an online random point generator to find a place to get to and then go and find the place and photograph it. (Nothing to do with pokemon!!) I put a distance of 1 mile in, which doesn’t sound far but when you’re stopping to take shots along the way a mile can take an hour!    

Day 149~366

Trotted over to the tree this afternoon, a bit of sunshine today, though I’ve found that doesn’t help when shooting upwards as the sky gets blown out, not to worry, I’ve got used to the settings I need to cope with it, mostly. Today I found a nail hammered into one of the upper branches, presumably to hang a swing of some sort from. But the shot of the day is of some fungus growing on another upper branch, and a tiny spider weaving a web between all the splurges of fungus. The branch is quite high up so had…

Day 24~366 & Liddy

We had our little Liddy for a sleepover last night, first time with her. It didn’t go quite to plan, and we didn’t get much sleep, but we all survived and I got some smiley faces from her to photograph this morning 🙂 She is the spitting image of her brother Cal, who regular readers have seen on this blog many times. First though, my 24th still life shot..   and the beautiful Liddy..
