blue

by Leonie Dawson on August 29, 2007


Every so often I play little creative games for the day.One happy day was taking photos of every blue thing I saw with my cute old Samsung V3 dodgy digi cam. It’s cute in that kind of four-year-old-digital-appliance-rendered-almost-vintage kinda way.

One thing it does do nicely is take good photos of blue.

It was totally interesting to spend one day consciously observing and filtering for one particular colour… I ended up finding about 50 objects and made a blue~matrix of them…

Some of my favourite pics are…


my boss’s water bottle (delicious)


a sign near our food markets…


this dangly-things-for-adults hangs from the ceiling in a shopping centre…


found this in the window of a kid’s store… can that bird be any tweeter?


mountain home at sunset


painting in progress which later turned into “joy heal love fly” painting

an observation on the state of blue:
currently the trend is for more navy coloured blues than the vibrant turquoise-aqua ends of the field (which are more my vogue). i’m wondering if it’s because i took these during winter and somehow colours are seasonally variable?

what are the colours in your world?

sending you oodles of blue-dles,
Leonie
