Right now, autumn has come out in full force colour-wise. We're enjoying a week of very mild August-like weather but the trees think it's October. I'll have some autumn images for you before too long (they're still in my camera), but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy some of the many photos I still have from summer. It may be winter by the time I get around to red leaves.
We were always intoxicated with color, with words that speak of color, and with the sun that makes colors live.
~ Andre Derain
~ Edouard ManetOur hanging basket of fuchsia, brilliantly backlit by the sun. It was recently killed off by an overnight frost.
The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most.
~ John RuskinA handsome jay dressed in the finest of blues.
~ Michele CooperThe beautiful centerpiece on our table at Frank's niece's wedding, in August.
Colours are brighter when the mind is open.
~ Adriana AlarconYou can tell it's summer when every neighbour has at least two different boats tied to their docks.
Colours are nature gone wild.
~ Raheel FarooqOne of our sweet little chipmunk friends enjoying some watermelon.
Color possesses me. I don't have to pursue it. It will possess me always, I know it. That is the meaning of this happy hour:
Color and I are one.
~ Paul KleeAn unexpected sunflower which grew in a pot outside our kitchen door. We didn't plant it there. It must have been the wind or a thoughtful squirrel.
And all the colors I am inside have not been invented yet.
~ Shel SilversteinKidlets from a cottage rental up the road enjoying their time on the water.
Colours are life.
~ Chuma NwokoloThis little moth was wandering the wall in our stairway, one evening. All I knew about him was that he was pretty colourful. After taking a few macro images of him, I scooped him up and transferred him outside where he belonged. Through the powers of Google, I have since discovered that he is a Painted Lichen Moth.
Colour stops me in the street, invites me to breathe it in and take it with me.
~ Suzanne PartridgeA grouping of painted chairs and their shimmering reflection in the water. You'll find these right next door at my neighbour's lawn.
Colour is the soul of Nature and of the entire cosmos.
~ Rudolf SteinerThe blood orange perigee/supermoon in a twilight blue sky.
Thanks for allowing me to blend colours with you. More photos coming up soon.
