It’s all about colors !

November 17, 2012

If you read this…

you will know that Scott Thomas’ new photography assignment is about

“Color Composition”.

Please visit Scott Thomas’ blog here : for more information. Deadline to send your pictures is : November 21st, 2012; this challenge is the last one Scott is presenting to us this year. Come and join us ! Thank you Scott, it is always so interesting to share our pictures from all over the world and learn more about photography.

Here are a few pictures I would like to share with you for this assignment :

On a dull Winter day in the South of France, the overall colour in this small alley was beige but for this man’s  striking red scarf and the bright blue gate.

My favourite time for taking pictures is at sunset. I think it brings out depth and brilliance in any colour.

Autumn offers so many possibilities for displaying colours.

An opening to the  light in an ancient church. I particularly like the contrast between architecture and nature.

A magic window in The Cube of Melbourne. Another world is created by the colourful reflections between sky, lamps and decorations.

    These are wonderful. I stopped and looked at the man in the garden for a long time, that is so interesting! And I loved the window…and the view of the trees through the arch…and the flowers and the leaves … oh heck. I loved them all!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog too!

    I’m especially drawn to two of your photos. The one of the leaf-covered roof and trees and notable not just for its colors but for its structure – the vertical trees, the horizontal lines of the roof. (At least I think it’s a roof. It looks very much like the metal roofs common in the country around here.)

    The other one I like is the church with the greenery. I very much enjoy photos that have been processed into black and white with a touch of color, and here you’ve accomplished the same thing naturally. And look at those wonderful faces along the facade of the church! It’s the little grace notes that make such places special.

    • It was a surprise to see the yellow corrugated roof on top of a woodpile in the forest. A kind of mimetism with the golden trees. We also use these metal plates to cover houses and barns.
      You might not have particularly noticed this huge church (and its little faces) in grey shades amongst other constructions and buildings of the same colour. My eyes were immediately drawn to the bright green colour and then I went
      back to the details. Thank you Linda for this interesting comment.

    Hi Isa.

    Lovely color; I love all of them.

    I am using USB Wireless Internet Stick until December Sunday the 9th, 2012. Reason to it is that we sold our old home after living there 19 years and now we are living in a temporary home before moving to our new home. The connection is not working perfectly and the connection goes off from time to time. I hope that You understand why comments are short until that day I mentioned above. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

  5. Merci Matti pour ton commentaire et le temps passé à me répondre. J’espère que tout se passera bien pour votre déménagement, 19 ans, c’est une longue tranche de vie dans la même maison ! Bonne chance et patience à toi aussi 🙂

    A symphony of light and color…

    Your camera (a fitting synecdoche) has travelled far and wide (and Madagascar, how I envy that)!

    • Thank you for your visit and comment, exiledprospero. Madagascar is a dream for botanists thanks to the variety of its flora, be it on the highlands, in the primeval forests or on the coast.
      I learnt a new word : synecdoche ¨! Thanks 🙂

  7. Extraordinary, Isa! There is no favorite of mine, they all make me salivate (as colors do!)! Exquisite examples for the challenge. Kudos!

    Hi Isa, very beautiful all the photos. I like specially the depth and intense color of the flowers. Love the many shades of purples too.

    i have been off for most than a week because my computer crashed for a thunderstorm!

    Très belles photos! A lovely selection for Scott’s assignment!

  10. […] from Switzerland always has a thoughtful contribution.  Her selection of photos are full of color and splashes of color in just the right places.  What I enjoy most from Isa is seeing Switzerland through the eyes of a local.  The country is […]
