Encouragingly Bright Color

"Sitting with someone in the hospital gives one many day and night hours to think. About color. About colorful." This is from photographer, writer, accountant Mamie Potter's blog.

I admire the fact that sitting in a hospital room brings color to her mind. That's probably not everyone's response to such a situation.

In musing about this, she has posted some boldly colorful photos on her blog. On this post. And this one.

Do go gaze upon them; they are emboldening.

Thanks, Peggy, for commenting on my photos. I have always wanted to be a brilliant black and white photographer, but it is always the color that draws my eye.

Could it be the drabness of the hospital that might make Mamie think about color while sitting there? Just wondering.

Be well!

I've never understood what was so cool about B&W, Mamie.

I think you're right, Debbie. But it's so easy to let the surroundings drag us down. I like this color strategy a lot better.

You are right, Peggy. It is a much better strategy to view our surroundings in a more positive way, when we can. I like Mamie's colorful perspective better, too.
