What would we do without paints and cameras and computers and vision and appreciation of the world around us?!!!  Island Traveler asked us to ponder the word, Color, for this week’s challenge.   As always, I was ready for a challenge!

Colors Seem to Fade —  Monochromatic Black Crowned Night Heron

Amos Lee make us ponder how we see colors via a beautiful song titled, Colors;  “When you’re gone, colours seem to fade.”

Paul Simon’s Kodachrome jump starts all of us into a foot-stomping sing-along mood for this week’s Image of Life: COLOR.    

Don’t we love to take a photograph?! – Kuna Indian – Republic of Panama –

They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world’s a sunny day, Oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama don’t take my Kodachrome away

Colors slipping into the sky…

The Counting Crows sing about Colorblind I am colorblind  Coffee black and egg white…

Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Panama, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama y Ecuador… and I think to myself, “Oh, What a Wonderful World.”

No song gives a better reality check about colors and seeing what’s in front of us than Armstrong’s Beautiful World.

Every single blogger contributes to the beauty of the WordPress world.  Thank you, Island Traveler, for bringing us together through the world of color!  Z
