BLUE AS THE SKY, AS THE OCEAN, AS MY HEART

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: The Color Blue

wires and blue sky

The first thing we think of when we think of blueness is the sky. This is the sky in October, peak foliage, with a sky so deep a blue there is no name for it.

And then, we think of the ocean. Sailing the ocean blue, though the ocean is often more gray than blue, we remember it best and with joy when it is at its bluest.

And finally, there are the blues. Singing the blues, the heartache of life expressed in a voice that brings tears to your eyes, yet a song to your lips.

Blue. Blues. Bluest.

  1. The color blue can be so hard to describe if we want to avoid cliches. That’s when photos say it better.

  2. Blue is one of my very favorite colors and you have captured it so well in the above photos. I can’t decide on a favorite because I really like them all! 🙂

    • The sky that month — last October — was almost unreal it was so blue. And that made the water blue, too. I remember thinking while we were down on the Cape how very blue it all was. Blue in the boats, the water, the sky … blue jeans on almost everyone. Blue blue blue 🙂

  4. If the aliens are looking for intelligent life on the planet, scrutinizing me would only add to the belief that there aren’t any. I suppose my dog is in charge. She walks me on a leash and i pick up her waste. I wanted to apologize to you, i was completely ignorant concerning “troll”. Thank you for your candor!
