Colours with the letter B

In response to

Cees Fun Foto Challenge

 

Cerulean (2)

A 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.

Jamtarts

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

Midnight Salford

Another 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.

A 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!

Cotton candy clouds

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

Light Reflection

Reflecting

A response to the reflecting prompt, taken at Salford Quays recently

DSC00865.JPG
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.

Frying

Fry

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.

Silver

#Coloryourworld #cyw #silver #metallic

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

Scarlet

#coloryourworld #cyw #Scarlet

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

 

Wild Watermelon

#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

Radical Red

 

Revolutionary

an idea – that a colour could influence a change

democratic principles

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 ?

Jazzberry Jam

Salford, 14th April

Hibiscus

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
