A Sunny Disposition

After long awaited first signs of spring, you can’t help but to think of happy colors. A timely reminder of spring’s uplifting effects …

How we see color is usually affected by the light’s source, its angle, and the important fact that colors are perceived differently depending on their surroundings. This usually doesn’t apply to the vibrant color of yellow, which is minimally changed by its surroundings.

As you can see in the images below, the color yellow is contained and holds its own.

In the ancient world, the spice saffron was one of the main sources for the color yellow, and was used in paint and dyes for textiles. Enjoy the color yellow as it moves indoors, giving everything a positive feeling.

Love these images! Yellow is such a hard color to get right, but when it is it's probably one of the best.

Thank you Stefan. I usually prefer yellow in small doses...
