Red/orange vs. green nuances are the ones that I find most of in my recent photos.
My first two tomatoes on the balcony turning red.
(I ate them yesterday!)
A piece of modern art in the treetops in the open air museum park. The work is entitled Dragon’s Flight or Kite Flight (Swedish: Drakflykt) and artist is Tor Udd.
The glazed muffin with red sprinkles picks up the red colour of the old church in the background (also in the open air museum park). The green table + nature itself serves as contrast.
Going through wardrobes at the House this week (my parents’ old place, for those who don’t know), I found this old chroceted patchwork blanket tucked away at the back of a top shelf. It stirs memories with me, but only vague ones. I think I was told some time in a distant past that it came from my mother’s side of the family, like from my grandmother or perhaps even her mother. I emailed a photo of it to my aunt, but she has no recollection of it.
I know I did see it when I was younger, because even then I was so frustrated with it. If whoever-made-it had either stuck to the main pattern of neat rows of the same colours: OR had mixed them evenly throughout the whole thing… Then it could have been beautiful. As it is, there are these inexplicable irregularities of deviating patches here and there. It’s like the blanket was started by someone who knew exactly what they were doing – and finished by someone who didn’t have clue, or didn’t care!
Alternatively, it might be our own family da Vinci code built into it. “Five blue, two green, one blue…” Any suggestions??
Meanwhile, with the Colour Wheel in mind, I do think the orange and the blueish green squares fit the ‘red orange’ and ‘blue green’ sections just about perfectly…
