The Month of Orange
March 2, 2012 § 7 Comments
For February, I took 29 photographs of orange, keeping with my one-a-day photo project. This may have been a better project in October when all the leaves turn brilliant than in February – the month of pinks and reds – but searching for a glimpse of orange each day was an interesting challenge.
I chose orange as my theme because:
1. My sister told me to pick a color and as she’s always been older, bigger, and wiser, I generally do what she suggests.
2. Tangerine Tango is the Pantone color of the year. It’s everywhere!
It was interesting to think about capturing a color versus a concept. Many of these photos don’t move me emotionally, but throughout the month I was more aware of details. For most of winter, I’ve walked to work, but it wasn’t until February 1 when I made the decision to look for orange that I noticed the spray paint marking the sidewalk for construction. Whether in construction, nature, food, light, or decor, orange has made its way into my daily life.
Below are a few favorites from the month.
