One spring evening, we attended a concert at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. The light from the evening sky poured through the cathedral windows, highlighting them in brilliant shades of blue, purple, and gold. By luck, we were in the cathedral at twilight, the time when the color blue is especially intense and creates dramatic effects. Photographers call this time the Blue Hour.
For this week’s challenge, share your interpretation of blue—the color, the mood, or the time of day. It’s up to you!
- In your post, include a link to this challenge.
- Use the tag “Lens-Artists” in your post. If you use a different tag, other bloggers won’t find your post in the Reader and that would be a shame. Also keep in mind that you should use fewer than 15 tags for your post or it won’t appear in the Reader. For more information on how to tag, click here.
- Ann-Christine will post the next challenge on Saturday, August 11th.

Have You Seen These?
Last week, Sue of Words Visual treated us to a variety of interpretations of the theme “soft.”
Debbie Smyth of Travel with Intent showed us some wonderfully soft golden light in Edinburgh.
As always, thanks for joining the challenge and have an inspiring week!
