Harmony in Color

I don’t know about you, but I certainly prefer to look at the vivid colors of these Echinacea plants. There is something energizing about color. Although I find B & W photographs interesting, and sometimes even more so for their excellent contrasts, a world without color would become rather drab after a short while. Whether we are dealing with nature, people or the universe, color is essential to our well-being. Like the hypnotic aqua blues of a paradise island, the brilliant yellow-orange blaze of a sunrise, the myriad palate of colors of birds and flowers, or the degrees of color on human skin, color is vital to our existence. So is harmony. I wish there was more of it these days.

  1. In visiting your site, I am reminded that it may be a world wide web but sometimes we are closely connected. 🙂 My husband was born in Kansas, we lived many years in Shawnee and Lenexa, and I worked for many of those years in Lenexa. Emporia State for you and Fort Hayes State and Ottawa University for us. I like your ‘yellow and brown.’ 🙂
