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!
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.
