From that morning session a theme started to emerge -- greens and yellows. I found some mustard, some pale yellow daisies, and of course the frog in the lilies. I thought I would do a little research to find out why this color combination was so pleasing to the eye. The yellow images seemed so refreshing and the mustard images (full of green tones) felt so relaxing.
Some of the above images are on the website.
It does depend where on Earth you live as to what colors mean to you. In fact color can change its meaning over time, even if it's the same region. But for this post, I'll just talk about color from an American and western European perspective. The information I'm sharing I got from Kristal Vdakker's website. (Go through to her article for more info.) I didn't feel the need to cross reference her information, as it resonated with information that was already in my brain. So I think we're ok. :)
- Green—"Tranquility, health and freshness, peace".
- Yellow—"Happiness, positivity and enlightenment". (And don't we all need a good dose of those!)
- White—"Purity, truthfulness, contemporary".
If you've enjoyed these images, would you share this blog post with your friends? It's my great readers who help me get the word out about my photography. Thanks so much!
