Weekly Photo Challenge: hue of me


“I really just want to be warm yellow light that pours over everyone I love.” Conor Oberst

Yellow is a colour of contradictions; on one hand we associate it with wealth, sunshine, optimism and happiness – and on the other with cowardice, jealousy and caution.

Yeah, sounds like  me – apart from the wealth bit.

I don’t wear yellow much any more, and the last time I decorated a room with it was when we did the boy-child’s nursery in blue and yellow with “raining cats and dogs” Ikea-print curtains.

It’s a colour I photograph a lot, and one I paint with, though mostly round the gold end of the yellow spectrum there.

“Fame stole my yellow. Yellow is the color you get when you’re real and brutally honest. “ Rosie O’Donnell, Celebrity Detox.


“As the yellow gold is tried in fire, so the faith of friendship must be seen in adversity.” Ovid.

“ “gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold”.’
‘Is there a chorus?’
‘ “Gold, gold, gold, gold, gold”.’ said Hwel.
‘You left out a “gold” there.” Terry Pratchett

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge theme is “the hue of you.

Here are some posts I enjoyed:
