Weekly Photo Challenge: Blue
Things got a bit turned around this week. The weekly photo challenge that is usually posted on Friday was published this Monday, and in its absence some of us bloggers participated in an unofficial photo challenge. My entry for that topic, “Reflections,” could also apply for the official topic, “Blue” (coincidentally enough), and you can view it here. So now I am posting my official weekly photo challenge selection today, on Wordless Wednesday…got that?
The challenge question is, “What do you associate blue with? The sky, the ocean…and what else?” Frankly, I associate blue with “The Blues,” a musical genre which is a personal favorite and also quintessentially American. Although I would love to get my photo of B.B.King and turn it all blue for this challenge, it would not fit with the theme of my particular blog, so I kept thinking. My thoughts turned to Greece, specifically Santorini, and its iconic blue domes:
This photo is another favorite. The blue painted arches make a striking contrast to the church’s white-washed bell tower, which again makes a brilliant contrast against the bright blue sky.
And perhaps now is a good time to point out that the background photo of my site displays a most spectacularly blue Bavarian sky.
