When people ask me my favorite color, I generally say green – but I’m always sort of torn between green and purple. Lately I’ve been weirdly into teals (the other day I realized I had a teal phone and a teal iPod in the pocket of my teal fleece jacket…right). I’m also partial to oranges. If you look at my wardrobe, the palette sort of resembles a box of Crayola Bold markers – a bit like this:
Pretty heavy on the jewel tones. So when I saw that today’s color for Spring Color Week is lavender, I thought, “Cool. No sweat. It’s basically just purple.”
Yeah, I don’t exactly have a lot of pastels in my Flickr favorites, and lavender is among the underrepresented.
So I found a couple of pics with lavender. And for the first time this week, I went looking for some more favorites, too. Looking specifically for colors is a really different way to browse images – but kind of fun, too. And in deciding to go looking through the Explore pages, I discovered that my old friend Flickr Leech is up and running again. Hooray! Talk about a dose of inspiration. Plus, I came across this gem. Love you, Lionel.
So, without further ado/blathering, lavender!
