There are no lines in nature,
only areas of colour,
one against another.

– Edouard Manet

The CBBH Photo Challenge: Multicoloured.

Update: Sorry, I missed the “blog-love”. A lovely dog-blog, and whimsical nature photography.



L’homme a besoin de couleurs pour vivre;

c’est un élément aussi nécessaire

que l’eau ou le feu.


Man needs colour to live;

it’s just as necessary an element

as fire and water.

Fernand Leger 

The Bright Spots

Your attitude

is like a box of crayons

that colour your world.

Constantly colour your picture grey,

and your picture will always be bleak.

Try adding some bright colours

by including humour,

and your picture

begins to lighten up.

– Allen Klein

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful. A good motto: nothing will brighten up your day – or your life – as thankfulness will.


Today was hectic and hot. I’m ready to put my feet up.

Absolute green is the most restful colour,
lacking any undertone of joy, grief, or passion.

Wassily Kandinsky

The Colour of Life

When they caught him they’d shut him away.

He’d been sitting next to his latest victim spattered head to foot. Lost in thought. His fingers idly drawing patterns in a pool of blood.  Almost playing with it. The knife tossed carelessly aside.

They thought he was crazy, He could see the pity in their eyes, once you looked past the horror and disgust.

They just didn’t understand: he only did for the colour. That colour of colours. The colour of rubies. The colour of life. And fresh blood.

What a pity it dried to such an ugly rust brown.

The colour of life.
