Color Is All Around Us

Our world is awash in color, and although I could be accused of having too much interest in monochromatic and grey scale photography, I nonetheless am a huge fan of color. My favorite colors are those that would be associated with the American Southwest. Problem is, I live far away from the bounty of earth hues and tones of that beloved area. So I do what I can from my rainbow perch here in little ol Tennessee.

MrsC and I went on one of our regular photo outings the other evening, venturing down to our local waterfront area in downtown, beautiful Chattanooga, adjacent to the mighty Tennessee River. It is a wonderful location where locals and visitors alike congregate on nice evenings to play, take in the peaceful moments, to love...to take pictures. I hope you enjoy these pictures that I took the other day and earlier this year from this riverside haunt that we so love.

A bit of love...and some vibrant color...

Kathy remarked that I had taken so many pictures of her...really not that many...must have been the bright red bag ;-)
So many colors in one 'burst'...
Colorful sky as our sun sets...
and the moon rises...
This is our final post for Alphabe-Thursday, Rainbow Summer School. I would like to thank Jenny Matlock, and all the wonderful bloggers associated with this meme...so many new and wonderful friends...puts a bit of 'color' into my world. See ya soon, I hope.
Peace and blessings
Namaste

  10. Jeff, I love this post! You have this sense of vision in your work that always surprises me!

    I have a deal for you.

    Let's trade houses for the autumn. You can enjoy the colors of the desert and have a great home base to wander at will all around PLUS you can enjoy the still 110 degree heat!

    And I will enjoy fresh morning air with autumn leaves dancing in the breeze.

    AND we can even swap dogs!

    I think we should do this soon!

    Thanks for linking!

    You're amazing.

    A+
