Study in Blue

Again, random photos with no particular meaning except these are a variation on a theme of blue! Hope you've enjoyed yesterday's and today's entries. One of tomorrow's entries will feature things yellow and orange. How droll, no?

I don't mind looking at blues, in fact, I love them! Great set! But I was also looking for your skywatch, I think the one with the plane is best for it!

Re: Franz Josef's statue is on Albertina, the street parallel to Kaerntnerstrasse...you have to go up the roof for the Albertina and its just in front,there was also a restaurant there...I'd show more the coming days...

Cool. I'd never seen DC's Mormon temple before.

D.C. Confidential said...

Mo: Thanks! Your Bollywood entry made me smile. My sister is a HUGE Bollywood fan. No doubt, whatever's being shot in London, she'll see.


Mirage: I really need to register for SkyWatch Fridays, don't I? Thanks for your compliments and for the info on the Franz Josef Denkmal.


Will: Thank you! The Mormon Temple is just up the road off of Connecticut Avenue in Kensington. You should go at Christmas. They string thousands and thousands of pretty lights!

If you ever sell your work, I want one of the Temple. Gorgeous!!

I like this idea, showing photos on a colour theme. Look forward to more. I might 'borrow' your idea, if thats ok! :)

D.C. Confidential said...

Lucy: For you, I'd be happy to just give you one. What size would you like?


Marley: Borrow away! I'd love to see Cheltenham in themes of color!

Blue by you, a lovely theme done in blue. Fun to change and mix things up. Anxious to see what orange will bring.

Debi said...

I like seeing D.C. in blue (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

A really beautiful set, each one a gem. I think this is a wonderful idea and I look forward to more of your explorations of the rainbow.

Rob: Blue by you... I get it. Took me a moment, but then I broke out in a smile! Very good. I haven't done a lot yet with yellow or orange. In fact, I think tomorrow's entry might disappoint. But, I'll keep working on it and one day I'll do a Study in Yellow and a Study in Orange. It's kind of fun to match things up based on colors!


Debi: Yes we can! I've really had fun with this, especially since I have a bunch of pictures that don't have a lot of content to go with them. Bunching them together based on common colors seemed like a great way to use these pictures.

Ah...I was going to suggest doing more color studies and here you are doin' what I was thinkin'

I love the blues and the pics too!
I'll be in Tucson, AZ next week. Maybe I can do a study in dust.:)

D.C. Confidential said...

Andrea: You could do Tucson in Taupe! :-)

Maya said...

Excellent shots for an excellent theme! The guy sitting on the bench is so sweet and peaceful. The beads are spectacular!

Maya said...

Tucson in taupe! You and your alliteration crack me up!

artful: Don't burn up down there!

D.C. Confidential said...

Maya: I love me some alliteration! It's a sickness with me. :-) I like the guy on the bench, too. When I came home and downloaded my pictures, I was THRILLED with how that one turned out! It's always such a treat when something turns out better than expected.
