In response to
Cees Fun Foto Challenge
Blue was used called Cerulean to create the watercolor on this post, it was added neat to create the sky and then watered down to create a light blue for the sea.
Berry Red was applied in this picture of two jam tarts. I like the way it brought out the colour of the Raspberry Tart but also the Shadow on the Lemon Curd Tart
Blue was applied to bring out the colour of the night sky in this shot of a set of Lamps in front of a waterside hotel. Midnight blue was applied after the shot was taken to bring out some of the lighter colours, such as the light on the waters reflection.
Berry Bush in the Enchanted Garden at the Brain and Spinal Injury Center in Salford, i’ve put this on here because of its red-purple “Blackberries” and that kind of classes it as a blue!
as the sun says peek a boo
over multi coloured high rises
for an hour or two
Skies turn into confectioners delights
as cotton candy clouds turn from white to blue
with occasional shades of pink or yellow
A response to the reflecting prompt, taken at Salford Quays recently
Sunset Reflecting on Ontario Basin, Salford Quays, Lancashire UK
Taken by me using my Sony DSC-H300 camera – using sunset mode and continuous frame.
Had a while to wait for the sun to duck below the clouds, but i’m happy with the end result and the colours in the water and sky.
Anyone wondering about the buoys in the water – this is where the watersports centre do their windsurfing, canoeing and line surfing.
Out in the Grecian sun
whilst sausages are cooking in the chefs pan
turning brown from pink
the restaurants recipients
are lying on sun loungers
or sat on coral sand beach
worshipping Ra above
in a vain attempt
to mimic their luncheon.

Some say they prefer it to Gold
it’s the way the
light falls on it you see
venerated by wise men and pirates alike
everyone knows – this precious metal – is secure in its place
revered by every smith that works it and every miner that hews it from the ground

She caught my view, in the Cretan sunshine
Casting a watchful eye over the fruits of the island
As our gazes met briefly, we smiled at one-another
Reacting to a momentary attraction
Long haired red head, with eyes of green
Enchanting young lady – with chance to meet at
The next mornings breakfast
#Coloryourworld #cyw #wildwatermelon
Wonderous fruit of passionate pink
Armoured by thick green peel
Tasty at any time – breakfast through to supper
Each slice taken from you bursting with flavour
Rounding on the tastebuds to make them water
Maybe its summertime when you are at your best
Enjoyed under the blue skies of a
Long summers afternoon
Or perhaps its when the chef has diced you up and placed you
Next to the Oranges, Mangoes and Papayas in a fruit salad
an idea – that a colour could influence a change
inked out in radical shades of red
could it be the passions of those men and women wearing it
all across the land, that displays its colour
loud and proud ? Up and down the land ?

A tale of #flowers and #jazzberryjam for the #coloryourworld challenge.
Colour of the Garden Hibiscus
it’s making a bit of a noise
but for fans of this wonderful flower
its a noise they all enjoy
attracting the birds and the butterflies
raising with visitors a smile
who will spend some time in the garden
enjoying the flowers for a while
