Project Spectrum’s focus shifts to GREEN this June – and what a perfect time to do so. Over the weekend, I went through some of my photographs from last year’s trip to Alaska. We took over 1500 photographs while we were there, but only uploaded a handful to Flickr… Alaska offered some amazingly beautiful green scenery, but chances are that you have some amazing greens right outside your door as well!
I will admit that the GREEN themed month is usually my favorite month – it is the easiest for me because for me, “green” is a personal philosophy as much as it is a color in the spectrum. My friend Andrea recently posed the question on the Ravelry Project Spectrum board about the love of green and the love of nature: does one love the color green because of nature or vice versa? It was a simple answer for me – my love of nature is first, and nature really does encompass the whole spectrum of colors, although green does play a very dominant role. I have a feeling that if trees were pink, I would feel the very same way…
Take this photo challenge: capture some of the greens in your neighborhood, your backyard or the park down the street. Let me see some of your local green nature! Link back to this post so I can see them all!
