Weekly Photo Challenge – Blue

We are being asked to post a photo of what BLUE means to us within this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge.  There are plenty of thoughts that pass my mind:

  • cold, cooling
  • expanse
  • the easiest colour to see in the light spectrum (which is why you have a blue sky)
  • and FREEDOM

For some reason, because the sky is so vast, the oceans and seas so deep and wide, I see blue as representing freedom.

I saw this kite being flown in the cloudless blue sky and I loved the way it just ‘played’ with the wind, tugging at the string for its own freedom, yet still held down.  Freedom beckons ….. but not quite yet.

    I like kites, that one is really cool.

  3. All most beautiful… Amazing how the blue sky just accentuates the colours of the kite.

    • Thank you Robin. Because I took this photo on zoom and then cropped it, it wasn’t until I had it all neatly trimmed did I see the full detail of this kite, and the colours. I love it too.
      Looking forward to seeing so many interpretations of this theme.

  29. Kate thisis great…it isn’t easy to get a clear shot like this and the kite is beautiful

  30. Really, the most magnificent shot – it’s almost as though the kite’s alive, a bird thrusting its chest forward against it’s trailing arms that are holding it back … It’s deeply affecting somehow:)
