Color Study: Blue


After reading Brynn’s post about her new series 'objects of color' I felt inspired to join in.  Color is a powerful and emotional force.  It's amazing how much it can affect you and the memories that are associated with it.

Blue reminds me of summers on the Cape – of the ocean, fresh, deep, and true.  Swimming out into the bay you are surrounded by shades of blue that go on forever.  Blue reminds me of my mother's china, of chambray shirts, and hydrangeas.   Blue reminds me of moments before the sun has fully risen when the light is quiet and steely.  What does blue remind you of?

Here are a few photographs I’ve taken to inspire you to reminisce on the color blue.

  5. Great post and lovely photos! Blue reminds me of a lot of things -- namely clear spring days, the kitchen my mother had while I was growing up, and the color of sleep.
