What a surprise to discover that I chose such pale tones for this challenge! All my life my colours have been bright, multicoloured rich rainbow tones. Although my favourite colour is green, I have always worn bright clothes, reds, oranges, blues, purples, and greens. So I started to look through my photo library for the colours that expressed ‘the hue of me’ today, imagining all those strong bird and flower colours from recent posts, but that is not what jumped out. This is the hue of me today. Click on any image to scroll through the slide show.
Reflecting on my choices I wonder where this paleness comes from; a little tiredness after a very hectic week of exercise, organising, socialising, playing with a four year old; or a general pallor from the medical treadmill that hopefully finishes in less than a week with the extraction of a tooth which will allow the removal of a pocket of infection from deep inside my lower jaw; or is it something else entirely, such as an attraction to the soft golds, silvers, blues and luminous whites of inner bliss? Who can tell?
What colour are you today? Would you like to discover by joining in the Weekly Photo Challenge? For this challenge, we want to keep it simple: share a photograph with a prominent color (or assortment of colors) that reveals more about you. It could be a symbolic, meaningful shade; a color that expresses how you currently feel; or a combination of colors that excites you and tells a visual story, says Cherie Lucas Rowlands.
