I don’t know how other people see color, but when something of a particular shade catches my eye, I have to stop and look. Like this photo – the warm, pinky reds totally caught my eye and I became obsessed with them. Obsessed enough to stop, crouch down, and pull out my camera.
And then click away for ten minutes.
It’s a testament to the respect people in general have when they see someone stop on a busy sidewalk and start talking photos. Many were more than happy to give me a wide berth as I practically lay down to get my shot. Maybe they thought I was nuts, but I prefer thinking that it’s about respect. That sounds better in my head, and doesn’t shake my confidence.
But back to seeing color. I can’t not see it; the world is full of splotches I see out of the corner of my eye, and sometimes it takes me an extra second to focus in on what that object is. What about you? How do you see or notice color?
For those in the US, have a great Memorial Day weekend!
