Starting from the top, the Man Utd bee (1 and 2) – still buzzing around Old Trafford, Manchester as part of #Beeinthecity . next the tin soldier (3), an old tin box i kept cookies in. Red Bowl with soup in comes next (4), for the culinary photographer – Tomato Soup, (5) Trafford Road Bridge, near to Manchester Utd (6) Tomato on a Slate (7) Red Begonias, and (8) Red Bauble on last years Christmas Tree

The Orb was a lighting experiment – and used Red LEDs to brighten up a Glass Sphere.

Saturday morning, and I’m pondering the next shade of colour in fees fun foto challenge

lime green

now you say lime green to me, and my artistic thoughts go directly to the fruit bowl

lemon-lime-paint

But limes nowadays seem much darker in tone than what I’d normally associate them with….you would have to split  them open to get the colour you were looking for

But a quick scan of the kitchen cupboards soon reveals this light green colour.   In a packet of custard, or perhaps pasta or even strawberry jelly (strange but true). For the doubters it’s the one in the green packet…

lime jelly ? An acquired taste.

and outside in the garden, the trees have more of a lime green colour to them than the actual shade of a dark green limeimage.jpg

look again… and the outside of the lime is hiding in plain sight…

Transformation

Salford, 25th November 2017

autumn leaves (p) Brian F Kirkham 2017

The change in seasonal colour came quickly this year,

some might say the bright sparks at the weather office got caught out

summers hand seemed to draw into the autumn days

and while winter popped up in the chill of the western wind

the leaves stayed green for a week or two more

till one day the trees said they’d had enough

and the leaves 🍁 turned like traffic lights from green to red

taking on tones from amber to orange, from red to brown ,

toughening up to face the hardness of winter

as they dropped to the floor below

and the welcome to walkers travelling on this carpet ?

the crunch of leaves 🍁 saying hello 👋

Cerulean (2)

A Blue was used called Cerulean to create the watercolor on this post, it was added neat to create the sky and then watered down to create a light blue for the sea.

Jamtarts

Berry Red was applied in this picture of two jam tarts.  I like the way it brought out the colour of the Raspberry Tart but also the Shadow on the Lemon Curd Tart

Midnight Salford

Another Blue was applied to bring out the colour of the night sky in this shot of a set of Lamps in front of a waterside hotel.  Midnight blue was applied after the shot was taken to bring out some of the lighter colours, such as the light on the waters reflection.

A Berry Bush in the Enchanted Garden at the Brain and Spinal Injury Center in Salford, i’ve put this on here because of its red-purple “Blackberries” and that kind of classes it as a blue!

Crazy, the way this

amusement ride of colour turns

round and around to the sound

of the pipes in its middle

under the musics charms the

stallions and fillies move up and down

expect laughter and cheers from the

little ones, who’ve been waiting all summer to ride it
