Aqua Washed Wall


Even a pale, muted, faded color can look intense in the right setting. Funny how a splash of faint color can bring new life to the most drab surroundings, and make it beautiful.

Show Your Orange

Unapologetic Orange

It’s interesting that fall is the time that we think of orange. Many of our favorite fall things are orange, like falling leaves, and pumpkins. Fall is also a time for change, dressing up, and showing your wild side. There couldn’t be a better color for fall than wild, zany orange.

What’s your favorite fall orange?

A Sea of Lime Green

green sea of chairs

Do you stop to smell the roses, or photograph the chairs? How often do we get to appreciate how truly vibrant and interesting our surroundings are?

Sometimes, things become more special because we choose to see them that way. Although lime green chairs row by row is pretty wonderful, it took a photographer’s eye to really capture it.

Real Life Yellow

We don’t often get to see bright, vibrant yellows out in the real world. It isn’t exactly a common color choice for buildings or fences. Just the occasional sports car.

So it’s fairly exciting to encounter something as bold as this yellow tunnel in Stockholm.

What’s the most unusual place you’ve seen yellow?

Orange Beauty Fluttering By


Considering how important pollinating insects are to our world, it’s sad that we don’t often get to catch a glimpse of more than one butterfly at a time. If you live in a city, a butterfly like this one is a rare treat.

Do butterfly sightings make your day?

The Call of Cobalt

Handmade in Cobalt Blue

When you see that unique shade of cobalt blue captured in glass, do you feel like you’re about to fall into an ocean? I think it would be warm and clear and full of exciting marine life. Cobalt blue glass is much better than a crystal ball.

What do you see?
