ROYGBIV: BLUE!




A peaceful, relaxing color, blue is universally loved. Ask anybody what's their favorite color and invariably it'll be blue. Rarely do you hear someone say "aubergine" or "chartreuse."

I found these blues first of all on Route 66, then in a boatyard on the Oregon coast, and then at a car show I photographed just half a car, copied it, flipped it, pasted it together again to create a cute little "bumper car" sort of creature.

Wishing you blue skies today!

P.S. Just what color IS aubergine anyway? Think "eggplant." And chartreuse? Think light, bright yellowish-green. . .
