Weekword: Colour

Late to the party this week, thanks to Friday's Christmas party frolics and yesterday's sucky internet connection.

Sally picked the word colour. It is a good one! I am a big fan of all things colourful. We live in one of those houses that will need repainting before being put up for sale, you know - red bedroom, dark purple spare room, sky blue office, and a red and black kitchen with a big red fridge. It was a surprise to both of us, I think, when we selected a relatively muted green and insert-euphemistic-name-for-beige-here for the living room, but I have some vintage blue batik fabric for curtains which needed something to contrast with.

Monument valley in 2007. It was a bright day and I love blue, so I tried to get as much sky in as possible. I'm not quite sure what happened to make it so dark, but I like it.

I follow a similar pattern when it comes to clothes. I avoid black. I have a black summer dress, a black winter dress and one black t-shirt. I avoid white as well, because I like to be able to spill. Being my own pop of colour around the place is the best way I know to brighten up a grey day.

Wildflowers - I'm not a fan of yellow but I make exceptions for natural yellows.

This year's "Autumn tree through the front door" shot. I love the colours of this tree and we get to enjoy this for almost a month. It looks even more splendid when the sun is on it and the colours are reflected into the hallway. It almost makes up for having to brush past it to get out of the house - never great when it's been raining.

Lovely word! Looking forward to reading all the other interpretations. Make sure you go to Sally's blog and check them out.

Lovely vibrant photos Sally. I really like the idea of taking a photo of the same view each autumn, I just wish I had an interesting view to capture!
