Capturing Colour – Blue moments.

For the last week 6 blogs and their authors/photographers have been capturing colours as part of a photography project, more to the point, one colour in particular. This weeks capturing colour was blue and boy have I enjoyed capturing it. Blue is my favourite colour, most of my wardrobe is blue, I once dyed my hair blue and it’s a colour that despite it’s association with sadness, it actually makes me really happy.

The sky displays itself in some beautiful shades of blue, the sea can be a sparkling blue, my son’s favourite toy is blue and my wife has the most beautiful bluey grey eyes. When I set out to start capturing I was initially overwhelmed with blue objects and sights to capture, except I had no camera and no phone on me. So I decided I was going to capture my colour naturally and not force it and I am so pleased with what I captured.

Don’t forget to go check out Real Housewife of Suffolk, Shutterflies, Maybush Studio, Sorry about the Mess and Circle of Pines to see what they’ve captured.

We’ve also been encouraging photography lovers to use the hashtag #capturingcolour over on Instagram. Below is a roundup of some of our favourites. We’d love you to join in with next weeks colour, so get snapping as much RED as possible and don’t forget the hashtag.

    Wow so much blue in ordinary things. I don’t think you really notice it unless you’re looking. Gorgeous photos, loving the blue! x

    I’m loving this project. It’s making me see so much colour everything and is making my instagram feed so much brighter. Thanks for including my little cherub in your round up.
