today’s blue

February 7, 2013

todays blueAwhile ago my friend Lisa Sadleir, who runs several websites including Family in Spain, posted a “Today’s Blue” photo on Twitter, taken at her home in Mijas on the Costa del Sol.

Since then I’ve been responding with my own “Today’s Blue” Twitter pics and this was today’s. This photo was not retouched in any way or *shudder* Instagrammed.  It was just a quick shot using my iPhone. But man, just look at that BLUE.

Pretty damn fine for midday in February, doncha think?

Twenty years ago I used to call this sky “as blue as Lua’s eyes” referring to the crankiest of all cats who ever existed (but who still managed to wangle her way into my heart). Actually, I still call this sky after Lua. She had the most amazing eyes ever.

Some habits never die.

    Beautiful blue! (But I have to take issue with your dig at Instagram! I think the filters can be fun and transformative. Sure, sometimes they are overused and abused, but other times they can bring out elements of the composition and help the image to tell a story.)
