Colour in my World



Grey November weather has set in. Outside, all is dull greens and browns under wet skies. I was craving colour while playing with my new camera. A bowl of Clementines in the kitchen and a pottery plate from Mexico seemed to cry out to be together. Orange and blue. Almost Vincent Van Gogh-ish.  Satisfyingly intense.

One of those Clementines tasted delicious, too.

I sure don't like the gray fall and winter days either. Thank goodness we haven't had too many yet.

A little hot colour to warm us up on a very cold night. When I arrived at Swartz Bay this evening at 9 I had to scrape the car I'd left in long-term parking!

A very lovely and uplifting image for a gray November day and a fabulous photo!

Sorry for late commenting, but just back from Germany, sorting out everything here...

Greetings,

A little splash of colour on a grey day...perfect! Now I'm off to get a mandarin orange to snack on.

You're so right Lorrie, the orange against the blue is a stunning combination! Have fun with the camera
