Tuesday, April 16:  Marianne of East of Malaga has a monthly photo challenge called the Conejo Blanco Blog Hop, or CBBH for short.  Her challenge for this month is: multi-colored.

According to this website: “Colour is a meaningful constant for sighted people and it’s a powerful psychological tool.  By using color psychology, you can send a positive or negative message, encourage sales, calm a crowd, or make an athlete pump iron harder.”

Talking of sales, Henry Ford famously declared that the Model-T buyer could choose “any colour, so long as it’s black.”   Thank goodness that these days, consumers are more discerning!

Here are some multi-colored photos from my travels around the world.

** One blogger I follow and love is Lynn Wohlers of bluebrightly.  Lynn blogs about “photography or philosophy, birds or flowers, zen, maps, psychology, travel… [her] mind roams.”  She takes stunning pictures of forests, leaves, flowers, and anything else in nature you can think of.  When I look at her photos, I want to jump into their magical worlds and stay there for a good long time.

**Another blogger I love is Roseanne of Wondering Rose.  Rosie works at an art museum in southern California and shares quirky and funny stories about her encounters at her cash register.  She always writes thought-provoking posts and comments.  I truly enjoy and appreciate her kindness and her insights.  Rosie had the life-altering experience of walking the Camino de Santiago.  I really hope to meet her if I can get to California this Christmas.
