Color Palette #126 :: Little Bud

I was reading this blog post the other day, and started laughing when the blogger (whose name is Brandy, by the way, what a lovely coincidence) said she hoards photos. This amuses me because I do the same exact thing.

There are photos on various hard drives that I just keep. Sometimes I edit them, sometimes I forget they’re there, sometimes I have plans for them, but most of the time I don’t. Very rarely do I remember to email them or, gasp, print them (printing photos? Whoever heard of such a thing?). I’m horrible like that. If I don’t do something about them right after they get uploaded to my computer, there’s a 70% chance that’s all that’ll ever happen.

Poor little photos.

What’s also sad is when I start going back through and find color palettes that I already made and never shared.

So, I thought I’d give a few of those palettes their due. Since I’m going to be out of town next week, I’m going to take that opportunity and do a mini-August Break-style series of posts. A quick color palette to brighten the day.

I’ll be back after November 5th-ish, and then we’ll start tackling some color theory post. Sound good?


P.S. I’m pretty sure I took this back in the spring, but the colors feel very fall, don’t you think?

  1. I’m a lover of geneaolgy, especially photos. I worry about photos of family members stored on computers and the possibility of our future generations not being able to see them (yes I really fret about this–not for just my own family but for every family. But like you, I continue to store photos and promply for get them.

    I love this palette, and yes it has an autumn feel, and slightly leaning towards elegant Christmas colors.

    • You know, I hadn’t really thought about it, but you’re absolutely right! How will future generations know what we looked like without photos? What an interesting thought…

      I have put together a few Blurb books, rather than individually printing photos. I like the way those look, and need to get better about keeping up with them for certain events. My only problem with doing it that way is that I feel the need to wait to put together a bigger book to save money. Maybe I need to just bite the bullet and start printing them out in some form.

      Thanks for the good thought!

  2. Is it really geeky that I am incredibly excited about your colour theory posts?! Either way, I am! I love this shot. I know what you mean about the autumnal colours in the palette, but the picture itself is so full of quiet potential, it just has to be spring! It’s gorgeous anyhow.

  3. Oh my gosh I WISH I was a photo hoarder! I have the opposite problem – when I upload photos to my computer I can feel there collective weight on my shoulders saying ‘edit me, post me on your blog, put me on flickr, just do something with me!’. Which is impossible of course, considering the number of photos I take… So reading this has been good for me, reminds me that photos can wait, they don’t need to be reviewed and shared right this minute!

    I adore this palette – I love that the photo is kind of stark but the palette is anything but. And yes, very appropriate for Fall (my favourite season), hope you’re enjoying it too!

    • See, I kind of wish I was more of a photo-sharer than I am! I’m getting better about it, since I just joined Instagram. And I do make it a point to share photos here shortly after I take them (or they will be lost forever).

      Baby steps, right?
