I suppose there are practical reasons that we see in color instead of simply grey scale. Color helps us recognize when fruit is ripe — sometimes. Color helps us identify the difference between Christmas M&M’s and Easter M&M’s.
I’m sure there are some critical roles for color, but mostly color is just plain beautiful.
What colors do you love? I mean, specifically…
For instance, I love the orange of goldfish and the white of snow at dusk. I’m a huge fan of the blue of a Robin’s egg and the colors of bamboo.
What about you?
