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 love this teal colour anyway, but the details on the doors are quite something. I could study them for hours, but with a time limited slot to visit the church it wasn’t possible.

    1. Hi Pauline. Glad to see that you have been persuaded to join me this month. I do miss your posts! As for the challenge, yes it is popular, I suppose because the subject is unrestricted as long as there is something of the featured colour in the scene. Probably as popular as the bench challenge!
