Lemon Thyme at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix
This week’s photo challenge turned out to be very difficult for me. From the challenge post:
For this challenge, we want to keep it simple: share a photograph with a prominent color (or assortment of colors) that reveals more about you. It could be a symbolic, meaningful shade; a color that expresses how you currently feel; or a combination of colors that excites you and tells a visual story.
I used to think that blue is my favorite color. Just check my closet for my collection of shirts for confirmation of that notion. I have since learned that in nature, though, when I see warm colors standing out against cooler surroundings, I really appreciate the color contrast. Looking through my catalog of landscape and floral photographs, I find the most appealing to me contain a complement of warm and cool colors.
I submit for your entertainment, a collection of images that best describe “The hue of me.”
