(from April 2011 archives)
As so often happens to me when I am making my way around the blogosphere visiting all of you, I got inspired this morning. This time my inspiration came from Joanne at Home Life Online and this post of hers.
(from April 2012 archives)

I’d like to use Joanne’s lovely post as the basis for a photo hunt. Many of you mentioned in the comments of my last post how much you enjoyed the photo hunts that I’ve posted in the past. I fell out of the habit in recent months, but Joanne’s post got me thinking. So here’s what I am proposing: Choose a color that you are drawn to. Post at least 3 photos (can be more if you like!) that feature this color in some way. Tell me what it is that draws you to this color. If you’d like, take it a step further and do a little research like Joanne did and find out some of the psychology of your chosen color.

I’m going to post a deadline of Sunday, April 28th for this photo hunt, but you know how I am about deadlines – it is more of a loose goal than a firm commitment. If you want to participate and you need more time, just let me know. As we have done in the past, leave me a link to your post in the comments of this post and I will do a wrap up post a few days after the deadline. It would be great if you could help me spread the word about this photo hunt to your own blog readers so that we can have lots of participation. Thanks, and I hope you have fun with your chosen color!


  1. Perfect! Its so exciting.. wow! 😀

  3. I love this idea, Karma, and will do my best to submit something. I may have to use my archives since I really shouldn’t be uploading new photos to this poor old laptop. It might overwhelm it. 🙂

  5. I didn’t want to miss out so I did it right away. Here’s mine:


    Thanks again, Karma!

    • As much as I am looking forward to seeing what you’ve done, I’m going to hold back until I post my own post. That’s the hard part of posting these photo hunts – it is difficult not visiting the posts that come in because I prefer not to be influenced by anyone else’s work. Thanks again for playing, and I will eventually be over to see of course!

      • I understand that completely, Karma. I do the same thing. 🙂

  7. I’m loving this Karma, another photo hunt, and I was your inspiration, YAY! I have added my contribution, http://homelifeonline.wordpress.com/2013/04/16/the-psychology-of-colours-the-colour-purple/, and now I will visit Robin at Breezes at Dawn. I didn’t want to be influenced in any way by seeing what someone else had done. (Especially Robin, you know how fabulous she is!)

    Thank you for coming up with another challenge. 🙂

    • Thanks for the inspiration Joanne! I hope lots of folks decide to participate. And I know exactly how you feel about not wanting to be influenced by others – I have that issue each time I do one of these photo hunts. I know what color I wish to choose, but I’ve not yet decided what my photos will be, so I’m not quite ready to come and have a peek at your post!

  8. I plan to do just this, Karma – write up a post (with pix) of my favorite color – brown. 🙂

    • Thanks for the blog visit Stacy! I’ll look forward to your post. Don’t forget to leave me a link or a pingback when you post. 🙂

  9. Very cool! I want to take new photos…but will have to consider where I can find color in Michigan in April…this year. When most of our world is brown. But still…first I need to think about which color I’m most drawn to…..hmmmmmmm

    • It is unfortunate that things are still so brown 😦 . Perhaps a botanical garden or nursery could help you with some color? Maybe a mix of old and new photos would work for your post?

  12. Hello Karen ! Without knowing about your photo assignment, the most recent post I wrote is about one of my favourite colours. Would you allow me to send a link of it to your blog as my participation to your challenge ? And add a mention about your photo challenge, naturellement ?

  14. Lovely idea…and lovely color in this post. Some of us are soooo tired of white. We’re ready for a little color in our world. Just might participate…we shall see. Hope you are doing OK, Ms. Karma.

    • Hi Kathy – I was away for the weekend and just got around to peeking in at my blog. I think its wonderful you are thinking of participating. I got the ping-back where you’ve mentioned it to your readers – thanks for passing this idea along!

        Comment by Kathy — April 23, 2013 @ 6:42 am

      • Ok – thanks for telling me! I prefer not to read posts related to my photo hunts before I post my own, so I will be back to read in a few days! 🙂

  26. Hello Karma. I’ve added another post in my series of focusing on colours, this time it’s blue! Thought I’d add the link here today as I don’t think anyone else has written about blue, yet it is apparently the most universally liked colour. http://homelifeonline.wordpress.com/2013/04/29/psychology-of-colours-naturally-blue/

  27. Hi Karma,
    Many years ago I gave a seminar on marketing with color to a group of business people. Would you believe that 60% of our decisions regarding purchases have to do with how we feel about color? We take its impact on our lives for granted.

    Yesterday I wrote a post about the color of dune grass. It’s probably the most sentimental thing I’ve written about color to date. Whether we realize it or not, color is personal. I’m far too late for your deadline and review, but please accept my contribution as a Post Script.
