Colourful posting

I've been enjoying keeping my eyes open and taking in my surroundings as I look for photo opportunities for the Year of Color 2 flickr group I mentioned. I haven't done such a great job keeping up with posting the pictures, but I'm going to take a few minutes to get up to date right now!
Week 2: BROWN+BLUE

This is a picture of the wall in my kitchen. This is how it was decorated when we moved in, we have lived in this house for 5 years now and not redecorated anywhere, sigh.

I don't mind the wall paper (though I doubt I'd have chosen it) but I hate the varnish of the wood, and although I quite like that colour of blue at the bottom I wish it was represented in something more pleasant than plastic paneling. Ah well, at least I won't be heartbroken if (when) my daughter starts colouring on the walls!

Mostly I've been finding pictures for the project when I'm out and about walking through town with my daughter. Perhaps this is because she's so busy watching everything around us that I have space to look around me for more then a few seconds at a time!

This next picture is of the multi-story car park. I put it in with the week 3 pictures but I guess it could also qualify under brown+blue as the darker bricks are more brown?

Week 3: ORANGE+BLUE


I noticed the blue mail box behind the orange bollard as we crossed the street and stopped to get a quick snapshot.

The flickr group pool has some wonderful shots with these colours. I notice some people make mosaics of their favourite shots of the week, if I can keep track of my favourites and find a few extra minutes I might have a go at that -- it's interesting how images strike people so differently sometimes.

Week 4: BLUE+GREEN

Here I am back up to date (just!). This is a colour combination that I see everywhere (especially at this time of year), so I've got quite a few shots this week. Now I just need to pick which ones to send to the group pool. Here's a mosaic (put together here) of all of my flickr photos tagged blue+green (so far):


1. blue sky + green trees, 2. blue jeans + green grass, playing at the park, 3. blue sky + green mountain, 4. blue + green in the stroller, 5. blue can + green grass, 6. blue + green paint job, 7. blue clothed baby + green cart handle, 8. blue trash can + green surroundings

Hi there =)

Just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog. My littlest turned one in July too, though she's yet to say much lol. If she could talk I very much doubt she'd ask me for a hat, she hates them ;)

Anyway, what fun shots with all of the colour combos. Very cool idea - I really like the one of the orange and blue with the mailbox peeping out in the background.
