This month we are looking for Brown. The colour of Mother Earth. What browns can you find in your world?
I’m sure most people don’t think of beaches together with the colour brown – we associate a beach with golden or white sand, blue sky, blue sea and brightly coloured beach accessories. So it is an interesting experiment to go to a familiar place with a different perspective in mind.
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.

where our brain
and the universe meet”
