The National Geographic site has a book called Life in color. What it says:
Life in Color is arranged by color in a rainbow of beauty. Each chapter, devoted to a color, begins with a short, inspiring essay that explores the qualities, meaning, and symbolism of that color, written in the same warm and lovely voice that guided the reader through Visions of Earth. Color chapters include photographs that are predominantly blue, orange, green, yellow, purple, and red. Smaller sections present images in silver, brown, black, gold, white, and “unseen color”—not seen with the naked eye, such as laser, the universe, and microscopic images. Throughout, interesting quotes and surprising short insights in the captions give the reader an entirely new look at the color in the world around us.
I love it. And the online gallery is a feast for the eyes. Since I am still feeling not very well today and not crafting, I thought I would share it instead. Starting with RED, here are a few of my favourites:
The site is well worth a look and is sure to inspire you.
