It is always amazing to me how many different blacks there are. You really see the difference when you look at all of the different black solids out there each company is a little different.

This time of year is very grey in Central Oregon...so I love to try and find some simple beauty within Winter. The sage brush stalks on a wet morning hike stood out beautifully along the side of the trail. My husband and dog patiently waited for me to snap some photos.

Have a great day!

Chinese Blue

Blogcolorstorychineseblue

One of my biggest challenges is naming colors and designs... I named all of the Blueprint Basics a couple of years ago and I have no idea why I came up with Chinese Blue for this Stacked Books design. I love the color....I saw a lot of it in Morocco. So, so, many blues in Morocco, which is one of the colors I struggle to find in my library of photographs. I now look for blues all the time...

This last image is from Morocco, the Peacock Pavilions....every night we would walk past this pool and to the left of the lights to a path that lead to our rooms. This sight was different every time I walked by. To say the lease I have tons of images of it.

Have a great day!
