Colors of Guadeloupe: Purple

Hi again,

Next color is Purple.

Purple is somewhat difficult to define. To me it is a range of hues of color between red and blue, mixed in different proportions. There is no such thing a "wavelength of purple light"; purple exists as a combination only. It is associated with a variety of extremes such as royalty/nobility… upper class, poison, friendship, passion, rage...

Purple is not a predominant widely used color on Guadeloupe on man made objects but is found in many places in nature, small patches of color contrasting against usually green background.


Recently recoated, Deshaies

Shacks, Bouillante

Orchid

Water lily

Honeysuckle(?)

Hummingbird

An ingenious colour theme, Tordan. The water lily for me.

I like it better than your Blue theme.

Re: Colors of Guadeloupe: Purple

Nice Tord! I like them all, but the ?Honeysuckle falls a bit short of the rest. I don't know what it is, but the tached roof has something special to it. I wonder if you finaly got me into architecture with this one
The water lily, yes - of course!

I need to get on a trip like this. Man! Have not see the ocean for ages, let alone the tropics ...

Re: Colors of Guadeloupe: Purple

The first shot (almost abstract) and the lilies (lovely reflection) both do it for me. Looking forward to more.
