52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 29 – Beautiful Colors

Nature is pretty amazing I find. There is so much out there that takes my breath away day by day. One of the things that does are definitely all the intense colors you can find by keeping your eyes open while out and about.

Like a stunning sunset wrapping everything into pink, purple, gold or red. Like the colors of flowers. The stunning, intense colors of some birds. The luscious green of the forest and the soft, shiny, pearly insides of shells. And of course the ocean. There are so many beautiful colors out there. All we need to do is open our eyes to the beauty that’s surrounding us.

Color Your World – Shocking Pink

Here’s another interesting name of what I think is a great color: Shocking Pink! Now I wonder why it would be called shocking? Maybe because it’s shockingly bright? Or maybe it makes you shockingly aware of something?

Here’s what the color is supposed to look like:


And this is my take on the challenge:

shocking pink

Pretty shocking, isn’t it? Well guess what it is? Can you guess it? I wonder what you think it might be… Oh, okay, if you twist my arm: It’s my workout bra…

Which Color Are You?

A fun little quiz I found thanks to Thumbup. I wonder which color would best represent you? Here’s the link to the quiz. Have fun 🙂


“You are dark blue. You are a very calm person – you hardly ever allow yourself to get riled up, which means you’re great at taking control of situations. This means you are quite confident and comfortable being a leader. You are also quite a thoughtful person, both in the sense that you care for others and enjoy getting lost in your own thoughts, planning out how you’re going to do things in your head and how best to achieve what you want to.”
