Life in Different Colors 30 Photographs Worth Printing

Life in Different Colors 30 Photographs Worth Printing

What is one difference between a man’s eyesight and that of a dog’s? It’s the color. Dogs only see things in black and white, while people see the whole spectrum. What we see in red, blue, yellow and green, the dogs only see in black, gray and white.

This is perhaps one of the gifts God gave the humankind that is sometimes taken for granted. Color gives more meaning to the otherwise to ordinary things around us. In fact, studies have shown that every color has distinct meaning to every eye that beholds it. Read on and find out the meaning behind the chromatic parts of a rainbow.

Red

Among the colors on the palette, red has the most personal association. It mainly depicts action, stimulating the viewer with energy. The more red is used or the “redder” an object is, the more it stimulates the perceiving audience. It could also mean love (hearts, red lips) or aggression (seeing red, reddening face).

Orange

This color suggests more controversy, but not neutrality. You either “love” or “hate” than neither. It also stimulates activity and appetite, being a close relative of the color red. It radiates warmth and sometimes have broad appeal, depending on the viewer.

Blue

Seen as dependable, committed and trustworthy, blue is considered as a favorite among most people. It has a calming and cooling effect either physically or mentally, and it aids in intuition but expresses exhilaration when a more dramatic or brilliant blue is shown.

Purple

Known as a favorite of adolescent girls, it is a color inclined to the eccentric and creative. It gives a sense of both royal and mystic qualities. And since it is derived from the combination of red and blue, it also embodies the balance of both calmness and action, while sometimes giving a notion of uneasiness or unrest.
