Hi all 😃 My entry for this weeks challenge, set by Anne from Slow Shutter Speed: Colourful Expressions.
I don’t know why the colour blue is associated with feeling bad; to me, it’s bright blue skies, warmth & happiness. Like this guy enjoying the Californian sun.
I do also like multiple bright colours.
…but I always end up with blue in the shot. These next pics were taken on Santa Monica Pier, lots of colours but with a fantastic blue backdrop. I even wrote two posts about blue sky backdrops in my Fan Of… series #65 & #66 (☜ follow the links for the actual posts).
I soon started to actively seek out blue sky backdrops; they make architecture standout, particularly when shooting a mirrored building.
Trying to get the blue sky backdrop does lead to some different perspectives; these next shots were taken in my back garden with bouquets on a fence. To cut out the surrounding buildings, I had to get down low & shoot upwards.
Lensy likes blue skys as well. The blue in the shots is deeper & more concentrated at the top of the sphere.
