Photo Blogging Challenge – Blue (November 2017)

This month's photo blogging challenge features blue - the most common colour in my world thanks to the broad prairie sky overhead, its reflection in rivers, ponds and lakes, and the extensive use of blue-tinted glass in Calgary's newest office towers. The one constraint I imposed was to take all photos in downtown Calgary, since last month's PBC post featured photos from Canmore. Please click through to enjoy urban variations on blue...

Photo Blogging Challenge – Colour (April 2017)

We don't always realize how much the presence (or absence) of colour influences how we're feeling. But the range and depth of our response to colour is embedded in language: seeing red, feeling blue, mellow yellow and "orange ya glad" are some of the common English phrases that reflect the influence of colour on emotion. So when winter hangs around longer usual, leaving the landscape drab and a little depressing, it's a challenge to spot uplifting splashes of colour in nearby nature.
