A Patch of Blue

According to colorpsychology.org, Blue is the most universally favoured colour of them all.

Blue is unique and versatile, and apparently each shade of blue can mean a different thing. Blue is known to be linked with creativity, sky blue is linked to calming and helping a person relax, and dark blue is associated with intelligence and lack of emotion.

I'm thinking in just the right tone it can also be linked to kayaking down a slalom course very rapidly as well.

Show us what the colour blue represents for you by participating in our July theme day.

A Fond Farewell To Greenville Daily Photo



On May 18, Mike Nice announced that he was going to stop posting to Greenville Daily Photo after seven years.  Mike had kept the blog going after the originator, Denton Harryman moved out of the Greenville area.

Thanks, Mike and Denton, for taking your turns informing us about your home town.

Before Pink was a Rockstar...


The color pink is said to represent caring, compassion and love, so I thought I'd counter that a bit with this picture of a small (celebratory) riot taking place somewhere in France.

No buildings, cars or even people were hurt in the production of this photo, but if you have a better example of a photo of caring, compassion and love, please do share it with us on the first of June and help us put our Theme Day in the Pink!

Magiceye views Mumbai for twelve years



Mumbai Daily started in April of 2007.  Magiceye is the photographer.  All we know about Magiceye is that he is male and in the transportation industry.  But, he shows us an enviable variety of images of the people, places and things that constitute India's biggest city, on the west coast of India.

Thank you, Magiceye.

The Colour Purple.

The word purple apparently originated from the name of a dye from a shellfish called porphyra in Greek. The dye was rare and expensive and used for colouring the robes of Roman emperors and magistrates.

These days the expression "having a purple patch" is used to describe a time when things are going particularly well, although musical legend has it that there was once a People Eater of the same colour.

On the first of May, why not share your experience with the colour Purple by participating in our theme day?

Thirteen (Yes, 13!) Years at Photos from Haninge


Just amazing!  Steffe has been reliably posting photographs from a suburb of Stockholm, Sweden, since early April 2006.  Thirteen years.  With barely an interruption.  Congratulations, Steffe.

One of Steffe's fun projects is photographing an old tree from the same spot repeatedly, in different seasons and different weather.  It is a fascinating series.  If you haven't yet seen it, check out Photos from Haninge.

Yellow!


Yellow!  Yes, "yellow" is the theme for City Daily Photo bloggers on April 1.  Let's see yours.

Actually, it will probably be first on Facebook, or Twitter, or maybe you'll hear about it from the nice old guy next door. Whatever the case, if you have news to share, how about sharing it with us, so we can share it with everyone and actually make these pages useful?

HAVE YOU GOT YOURS?
