Despite knowing the mnemonic for the colours of light in a rainbow for years, I hadn’t thought much about the distinction between blue, indigo and violet. Lightroom, which I use to edit photos, allows you to adjust red, orange, yellow, aqua, blue, purple and magenta. No indigo there. And we were probably all taught that there were three primary and three secondary pigment ‘colours’ – which included purple but no indigo or violet.
My contribution to this photo challenge is a collection of bright photos, mostly of flowers, one as old as seven years, one from exactly one year ago. I included one photo to illustrate a favourite geranium fading from indigo to violet.
This marks my return to regular posts, I hope.
