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 Purple. A secondary colour made from red and blue, though you can find many different shades of purple. Try to stay clear of violet though as that will be making its own appearance. Although found in nature in shades of crocuses, lilacs, and irises look for the bruised colours in a sunrise or sunset, an indigo sea, a full moon in an inky sky. The darkness of a red wine, a rich velvet curtain or a starling’s wing.

Where can you find purple?

Life in Colour

It seems that my idea to split Purple and Violet into separate months is causing confusion and anxiety throughout the blogging community [🤔]. As with any colour we all perceive them differently and add to that the calibration of your monitor or phone screen I suspect it is unlikely that any of us are seeing the same colours!

To try and help matters and because I don’t want to alienate or upset anyone who reads my blog I am declaring May open to whatever shade of purple or violet you wish to share. But violet will still have its own month, mainly because I can’t come up with another colour! But by then hopefully you will have all forgotten and forgiven me the traumatic beginning to May 😂

Darker shades

Lighter tints

Maybe these palettes will help!
