There is just something about the color turquoise that makes me think of sunny skies, salty ocean breezes, the soft rustle of palm trees and a tall glass of something frosty.  

What about you?  What colors evoke a picture in your mind?

Oh, my..these are beautiful.
I never really think about that color, but thank you for reminding me..it's all around me if I look carefully.
A good lesson to see with new eyes and with intention.
Best.

Bubble gum pink makes me think of my grandmother's kitchen. It was her favorite color, and she painted the walls and the cabinet (only one big one in the corner) a chalky shade of hot pink.

gorgeous post, as always. the color green comes to mind. i once had a dream the incredible hulk was chasing me. and the first car my family had when we immigrated to the states was an M&M green pinto. speaking of m&ms, i only eat the greens one...

I've never think about colours, but I realize that lots of my clothes are blue, and I live surrounded by green colours. But my bedroom is white.
And I adore the rainbow.
I can't choose just one colour.

I love turquoise myself. It makes me think of ocean, warmth, tropical places....and here I am enveloped in snow and so early!

I see deserts and cactii, chocolate mountains. I hear the wind through tamarisk trees and smell the dry desert breeze.
That is turquoise to me.

I think all colors evoke emotions, feelings, sights, smells and sounds.

I like all the photos very much.
