Thematic Photographic 362 - Blue

Keep it clean, please
London, ON
September 2015
This week's Thematic theme, blue, gets us back to basics, to colors that often get ignored in the kaleidoscope of the day-to-day.

Only after I had shot this otherwise unremarkable garbage can did I notice how resonant the blue was, and how I had clearly been trained out of noticing it. As much as it was the geometry that drew me to this typically overlooked corner of downtown London, it's the color that keeps me coming back.

So for the next week, we're going to find the blue and celebrate it. Who's in?

Your turn: Thematic is our weekly photo sharing and learning extravaganza - just click here to learn more. First, either find or take a pic that evokes this week's theme, blue. Anything goes, really, and all you need to do is post it to your blog or website, then leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it. Visit other participants to spread the photographic goodness. Repeat as often as you wish throughout the week. And, as always, please accept my thanks for making Thematic such a highlight. Enjoy!

You made me think about it. We so often are drawn to bright reds, yellows, greens & blue seems to take a bit of a back seat. Blue is my favourite colour but I rarely seek out blue things to photograph purely for their colour.

Here's my contribution here in the 1st photo
