Orange...and 5 Senses Friday...

Orange really was a hard colour for me to find...it's not that I don't like it, its just that I really have hardly anything in this colour, and I had to stay in all day for the builders. So..just the two offerings, the first a book about the cover design of penguin books..and the second, my beloved wool paisley shawl (more rust, buff, and redish tones..but comes out sort of orange in general) shot in a brief moment of sun today. It is very grey and wet today, just a tad miserable..and seems like it is winter once more....

Sight : Untitled , Pumpkins , Orange Yellow Ranunculus , fireflies , open ....my orange chooses for the day. I have loved my colourful week..it has led me to rediscover things that I had forgotten about, re-examine things I have around me daily and appreciate the for their beauty.

I think you're right, orange is really not easy to be found on things, other than in clothings and fashion accessories. And I love the pattern on your shawl!

it's interesting what blogspot can do to your post... ;-)

have a good weekend, abigail!

Hi Abigail -

I totally agree that the colour exercise forces you to look at everthing and that the ordinary and mundane can be quite beautiful.
