"floating flowers" ~ a rainbow of warm colors

Color Wheel ~ image found HERE
Kat Sloma's BLOG continues to stimulate my creative eye! peek at my recent post HERE, or CHECK HERE ~ why, I've been attempting to apply Kat's suggestions to my photography since DECEMBER 2010.

In her current EXPLORING WITH A CAMERA series, she asked us to browse our photo library & identify our "COLOR EYE" using the color wheel shown at the top of the post. From my photo file, I've listed samples of each category and provided a simple definition:

:: a single color ::
Natural History Museum ~ Oxford, England
"ornate" detail of column
shades of yellow-orange

:: 2-3 colors with a common color ::
Big Sur ~ Nepenthe

"sparkly" set of stars
yellow + red-orange + orange

:: a range of colors in a sequence ::
Portobello Market ~ London, England

"cool" hydrangeas
blue + blue-violet + violet + red-violet + red

An observation: my "COLOR EYE" tends to focus on colors that are contrasts... 
Astro-turf Car ~ London, England

umm, I wonder if contrasts will be Part 2 of the Color Wheel? check back or better yet, participate in Kat's EXPLORING WITH A CAMERA exercise!!
