Orange: a gentle frame of mind.
Skinnywench has posted her “Word a Week Challenge” as orange. I’m in a gentle frame of mind – and most shades of orange aren’t my favorite. Orange is such a hot color that it usually doesn’t facilitate a gentle frame of mind – it excites us. As I am thinking about this, I look around and realize that I have used quite a bit of orange in my living room – as accent color for my very gentle, quiet, green public living areas. But they are gentle oranges.
So my challenge this morning was to go through my files and find oranges that fit my gentle-frame-of-mind mood. I wanted to use photos I haven’t posted before, which means that they were photos that I had passed over because they were orange – and well orange isn’t usually the color I enjoy working with. Here are some oranges that maintain my gentle-frame-of-mind mood.
