Anything bright to stand out

Even if it’s a drab door or a window or something else that’s not so exciting, a spark of colour can often bring much needed excitement to any picture. Take this door for example. It was a bright yellow door in the middle of a metal facade that really stood out from its surroundings.

The sheer fact that it was coloured bright, contrasting against the steel walls, caught my attention and prompted me to take a photograph of it. Had it been a dull colour that blended in with its surroundings, I probably wouldn’t have thought twice about stopping to take its photo.

Next time on your walk, be sure to observe your surroundings for pops of colour. You’ll likely spot a lot more when you make the effort to find them.

Take a picture of it, and you be surprised at how photogenic it can be.

    Hi Andrea! Thanks so much for your feedback. I’m so glad I’m helping you realize this! When we are more conscious of things around us, we start to recognize them and see them in a different light, so-to-speak. Thanks for your support on my blog, Andrea!
