Last Thursday was the day to post our 'blue' photographs for Jennifer Coyne Qudeen's and Julie B. Booth's challenge 'Searching for Roy G. Biv' (Deciphering: searching for Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet)
Having been sick, I didn't make it in time for the challenge and I wasn't able to take any new pictures either. But I thought I could post some older blues to honour the occasion, and here they go:
This curious creation is a fractal that I made years ago. Four years, maybe? I remember lovingly tweaking the colours for hours till I got the exact blue I was looking for. It is titled 'feeling number 2'.
Not a ship sailing in the sky but the dome of a chapel in the Aegean island of Mykonos. The whitewashed walls reflect the warm light of the setting sun.
Yet another chapel in Mykonos, this one photographed shortly after noon. Harsh shadows, bold contrasts. It dates back to the sixteenth century, if I remember correctly.
Several shades of blue in Santorini, one of the most famous and most beautiful islands in the Aegean Sea. The hazy isle in the distance is, in fact, the crater of a volcano that is still considered active. Its last eruption was in 1954 and it wiped away a whole village on the island.
Flying to the other side of the Mediterranean, this is the Spanish island of Mallorca. Stormy skies and a windy day finally calmed down in the late afternoon.
Mallorca again. A small fishing village on a quiet Sunday morning. It was November and the sun was still warm though not so blinding as in summer.
The small cemetery on the outskirts of Sitges, on the Catalonian coast. The chapel seems to be attracting the clouds to itself.
Julie, Jennifer, I'm sorry I missed the challenge but at least you know I didn't forget about it!
