Favourite Colours

When people ask me what my favourite colour is, I never know what to answer with. I cannot possibly just pick one colour.

I do not just like colours because they are pretty, but because of what they symbolize and remind me of. That makes each of them special to me.

If I am made to choose, I tend to go with blue. Not a standard blue but cerulean or navy, something rich and dark or darker. Blue reminds of the ocean, of the salty breeze in the air and the lapping of the waves on the sand. It also reminds me of my mom as it is one of her favourite colours which she incorporates into her art. The colour blue is special to me because it is special to her as well.

Grey is a dull colour according to many, (including my mom) but it reminds me of clouds, and days inside. I love rainy days and the bursts of creativity they bring with them, which the colour grey reminds me of.

White is a very modern colour that goes with just about anything. Everything in my room is the colour white, which gives it somewhat of an empty look if you were to take everything out of it. However the colour allows me to fill up the room with my own colourful creativity which stands on the milky coloured walls.

The colour red is a one that I actually do not know how I feel about, but am including nonetheless. Red to me is such a passionate colour, and a colour I used to hate with a passion. Recently it has been creeping into my life in little ways and I have grown to like it, as I have become passionate about a few things myself.

Favourite Photos

Lately I have taken many photos, and I just recently updated my image gallery here on my blog!

If you like photography I suggest you check that page out, but for this post I have decided to share some of my favourite photos with you, new and old.

My most recent favourite is this image, of an old camera I bought last summer. It is so bright and simple, and I associate many happy memories with it.

An image I am quite proud of would be this one. Last summer, I decided to take a photo of my fence in my backyard, focused and unfocused. I then fused the two photos together to create this effect which I was quite happy with.

Honestly, I am not entirely sure if I was the one who took this photo of The Louvre (or if it was one of my parents). Aside from that, it definitely is one of my favourite photos. This photo was taken in 2011 during a family trip to France, and it is one of my favourites because 1) what a beautiful colour scheme and 2) the trip was amazing, so was the museum. If you cannot tell, I would love to go back to France and Europe in general.

This image was taken on July 1st, not long before the Canada Day fireworks started. I took many photos that day but this one always stood out because of the colours (and of course the bokeh).
