Friday is Blue Day….

I like blue, it’s my favorite color. It can be a pale color like the water in a pool, or neon color like those little tropical fish (tetras) you see at most pet stores. I found several pictures with the color blue in them, but all of my friends have had such good pictures this week, that I’ve had to be real picky in what I select to keep up with the quality of all the other’s wonderful pictures.

To all involved in color week, this has been great fun. I think I’ve become a little more conscious of the colors around me. Truly an experience I’m glad I decided to undertake.
To all of you who have joined me in COLOR WEEK, thank you for the kind words and comments. Please keep them coming.
I’m looking forward to carrying on this new affair with my camera, and hope to bring you pictures that are worthy of your viewing pleasure.

Now on with BLUE….
This flower might not technically be blue, but I think it’s pretty.

Here a close-up of our Colorado Blue Spruce. Scott, it is a blue spruce isn’t it? It may be from Utah or Wyoming or Rhode Island, I don’t know?

Here’s a picture of some blue lichens growing on a maple tree in our yard too. If I understand it correctly, lichens only grow in areas were the air is fresh and clean. Aah! the country.

This one is just a cool old car that was sitting in a parking lot near where I was having lunch while on the road yesterday. It was my lucky day. Everybody, whether you know anything or not about cars, has to admire a cool old car.

This picture is just for the guys; up that testosterone level a little bit (insert Tim Allen grunts here). This is off of a tail fin from a jet fighter at the Grissom Air Museum north of Kokomo. You have to be a tough guy to sport a logo like that on your butt.

This is one of those cool pictures that you never knew you got until you open it on the screen. This is the state capital building. During the day, it’s a brown limestone color. But under the low light of pre-dawn, it is a beautiful blue color. I didn’t realize it until I loaded it onto my pc last night. Neat uh?

But my favorite blue is still……my comfy old jeans.

I have enjoyed reading your comments on all of your pics this week. You seem to be very detail oriented. Have you ever considered writing a book?

It's never good when you're on top of the parking garage before the sun comes up...
