Life in Colour

To find out more about this year’s photo challenge here on Travel Words, please read this post.

This month we will be looking for Blue. A primary colour that we look upon almost every day. But don’t forget about the different hues which include indigo and ultramarine, cyan and the other blue-greens such as turquoise, teal, and aquamarine. Blue also varies in shade or tint; darker shades of blue include ultramarine, cobalt blue, navy blue, and Prussian blue; while lighter tints include sky blue, azure, and Egyptian blue.

It’s nature’s colour for water and sky, but is rarely found in fruits and vegetables. It also happens to be my favourite colour.

Today I am taking a chance with these blue-greens of a beautiful door. Too much on the green side? Perhaps, but there are some blues hidden away if you look closely

Look for The greener shades Of blue this week

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 enjoyed it so much, I looked it up, the entire building is gorgeous! Maybe, one day, I’ll make it there to visit in person. Thanks for sharing 🙂
