Playing with colour – yellow

Reading Bright Bazaar and Capture by Lucy I’ve been thinking a lot more about colour recently, daydreaming if you will. Trying to stop for a second every now and then to look at what’s around me. It’s quite relaxing on those busy, stressful days we all encounter from time to time.

So while daydreaming I thought it would be fun to pull together my thoughts; looking around my room on Saturday morning in bed I spotted this bright yellow book on my bookshelf and thought, yep, that’s where I’m starting.

The idea from there was to simply walk around the house and gather a few bits and pieces that were yellow and take a photograph of them together. Why? Why not? Note: If you share a house with others, be sure to note where you found each item!

Playing with colour - yellow - This Little Space of Mine

As you can see, all kind of household items. I purchased nothing to go with it, I didn’t set myself any number of items I had to put together, I simply went with what I found. Took me only a few minutes too. And I really enjoyed it.

A simple but fun thing to do that made me think creatively. And I didn’t over think it. In fact, I’m writing this post straight after talking the photo – so it’s all fresh and ‘raw’, if you like.

If you fancy playing around with colour, have a look around, pick a colour and group some items – even if you’re not a blogger, share them online, share a photo with a friend. Look around and see what colours take your fancy. Lucy also runs a weekly #capturingcolour theme on Instagram, which I’m going to try and get involved in soon. This week’s colour is pink.

    Oh I love this. One of the things I want to do is improve my photography this year, and this seems like a great way to play around.

    I love playing with colour! Every day I take myself off, even if it’s for just 5 minutes and play with bits and bobs, style up a few photos that I will share on Instagram later that day and it just gets your creativity flowing!

    It’s definitely my form of stress relief!

    Love to have you joining in #capturingcolour xxxx

      I’d definitely like to do more of it, it was a lot of fun and meant I got to practice my photography. 🙂 Thanks for commenting – I’ll keep an eye out for #capturingcolour. Leanne x
