Frank Sinatra once said (or so the internet said) “Orange is the happiest colour”. I would have to agree with him. When we started this week of capturing colour, I was a bit worried I wouldn’t find much orange. When really, it’s been right in front of me almost every day. I found it on M’s favourite blanket, on his pajamas, in the park he laughs and giggles in and on one of his favourite t-shirts, we even found it as we enjoyed one of our happiest days this month.
Orange is a colour that, once you notice it, bursts right before your eyes. I now notice it wherever I go and it really makes me smile. I’ve really enjoyed this photography project. I thought I was quite good at spotting the colour around us but it also helped me to see the colours I was missing. So these are what I managed to capture.
Each week the creative snappers using the #capturingcolour hashtag over on instagram, has grown. I have found choosing my favourites to get harder and harder as more join in. So many creative shots and I get to choose just 6, when really you are all so awesome for finding so much colour. This week I spent so long choosing, but I am happy with my choices. Each capturing colour in their unique way.
This week rounds up the final weekly posts of capturing colour, but don’t be sad if you’ve enjoyed joining in, we are going to continue the hashtag on Instagram and share each week’s colour prompt here on our site. We also have some special feature ideas for you too. So keep an eye on our instagram feed to see what we have in store for August.
Don’t forget to visit the rest of the Capturing Colour photographers, Real Housewife of Suffolk, Shutterflies, Capture By Lucy, Maybush Studio and Sorry about the Mess to see what they’ve captured.
