July Blue Squares – A Photo Conglomeration

We are at the end of Becky’s #JulySquares challenge! Thank you Becky for hosting it! I enjoyed scanning my environment for blue things. I’ve created a collage with a few photos from my busy month of July. Enjoy! 🙂

1. Your photographic square could be a ‘Bolt from the Blue’ – something unexpected or surprising

2. Alternatively why not, like I have today, explore ‘Into the wide blue yonder‘ – sky, sea or maybe a location that is appealingly unknown and mysterious

3. Or if you prefer keep it simple with ‘Blue‘ – whether that’s azure, cobalt, sapphire, cerulean, navy, ultramarine, indigo, or turquoise

And if you’re feeling particularly adventurous try to combine two of these, or maybe even all three!

December 10 Colors and Letters Challenge – Dark Cyan

Thought this would be a fun challenge featuring dark cyan just for today as I’m enjoying the break! Cee reblogged a post by citysonnet called Colors and Letters – Photo A Day Challenge. I think some of the photos are closer to the shade than others! 🙂
