Life in Colour Photo Challenge 2021

After a long (and strange) year running a weekly photo challenge that didn’t really go as planned (due to no travel at all in 2020) I am going to spend this year looking at colour (which was one of my monthly themes).

Colour affects us all – it can ignite our senses, change our moods, our perceptions, our choices of what to wear or how to decorate our homes and even how we think of places – from the grey, hazy blues of a winter sky to deep cobalt blues of a summer sea; fresh, bright greens in spring or grey-green olive trees and blue-green eucalyptus; a bright red ladybird; freshly fallen snow; an orange butterfly or a pretty pink painted house.

I am not going to be delving into the psychology of colour – there are plenty more qualified people out there who can do that – no this year is all about having FUN. So get out there or look through your archives and choose the photos where a particular colour makes a statement.

Each Sunday I will post one or more photos for the chosen colour of the month. If you want to join me then simply post your colour photos and link to mine in a comment or via a pingback. Together, with the tag colour21 I can easily find your posts in the Reader.

The colour will be changing monthly on the first Sunday of each month so plenty of time to post any time during the month.

I look forward to seeing the colours in your life whether from nature or other sources.

Colour is the place
where our brain
and the universe meet

~Paul Cézanne

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I never knew that we had Baobab trees in England, let alone Canterbury! I have probably passed that tree without noticing it. Thanks for sharing these with me.

  1. How true is your colour theme. Complement colours are also essential for my photographs. I’m also working with a project of healing photographs on a slide show project with strong colours and music
