Color. Splashed on the walls of cities, in batches of flowers in gardens, in the doodles of students, and on the palettes of artists, color is everywhere: it may represent our mood, and it can affect our mood. In photography, you can use a spectrum of colors to bring a place to life, or focus on a single shade to make a bold statement. Conversely, you can shoot in black-and-white or remove color in editing mode for a different effect.
So says Cherie Lucas over at http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/04/05/weekly-photo-challenge-color/ pop across and I’m sure you’ll see some amazing photos!

Love your colour gallery, Gilly. What is the first one? It looks like coloured pasta hanging up to dry. 🙂
Haha it’s wool, freshly dyed for making rugs in the souk in Marrakech!
Okay…….thanks for clarifying that. 🙂
Beautiful color! I knew you would!
Oh, what stunning colours Gilly. Love your photo’s. They are stunning! My favourite is the Red Poppies. Great post and entry hon! *hugs*
Beautiful colours indeed

What a wonderful explosion of colors, Gilly!

BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Gilly, not only do I love this post, I love your background and header! Gives your page a light, springy feel. Margie
It’s amazing how far photography has come and how crisp and exacting the pictures are today. These are all gorgeous but the poppies grabbed me even though other pictures have texture as well as colour.
Simply scrummy colour, Gilly. We ought to meet up and create colour together somewhere. Now, wouldn’t that be fun 🙂
Poppies are great…but I think I prefer your first shot. These are all wonderful though.
Poppies are so attractive to me. Where did you take these? I wish I could find some here in Montreal. Do they survive ? Cold and misery (like I do) 🙂
What a wonderful sight for my bleary eyes this morning!
Wow what bright pops of colour. I love the flowers at the bottom… perfect shot!
Are they poppies?

Another fantastic post, Gilly!
just love this colorful gallery you created
Thank you Rosa!
Great colours, I love the wool in the first picture, it reminds me of when my mum used to un-pick all of our old jumpers and wind the wool around the legs of an upturned chair, then tie them into hanks and wash them ready to be knitted up into multi-coloured jumpers of the next size up.
Thanks for the memory jog ~ and the smiles which came with it. 🙂
Fabulous, vivid collage, Gilly …!
Very colorful, creative and delightful! I especially like the top left one, that’s my fav! Such great talent those students!!
gorgeous colours, I think “colour” was the perfect choice of theme to brighten up a winter that has been overly long.
My eyes have enjoyed a beautiful array of bright and colorful items. The baby booties are adorable. I love when things are made from felt. The painting is awesome. And, the upbeat yarn makes me want to get my knitting needles out. Great post, Gilly ….. xoxoxo
so much color. a feast for the eyes!
These are all stunners, Gilly.
I have a special passion for poppies, however, so that picture is #1 on my hit parade!
Colours that delights the senses and make us truly feel alive. Beautiful!
Nice variety of colors, Gilly!
Love the little booties, how simply adorable…and the color gallery is amazing!
Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed the photos…it instantly lifted my spirits…!!!!
Gorgeous! Love the light in the first shot, but the poppies are my pick 🙂
