The Colour Blue in the City and the Country

Recently, I took some pictures in the city and the country where the dominant feature was the colour blue. In the city, blue is an electric colour that creates almost a warm pool enveloping people, sidewalks, buildings and streets.

In the country, blue is seen in the cool infinity of the sky unimpeded by buildings or towers. Sometimes the blue is found in interesting shades and variations in the clouds just before the sun sets. I find the colour blue beautiful in both places and am fascinated by the differences and similarities of these rural and urban experiences of colour.
