A firework of gorgeous women from Pantone

So I am crazy about my new Pantone app; it helps me find the colors that make me happy like these red/tangerine/persimmons on this sexy koi:

Blue being my other favorite color, I end this post with this quiet blue palette on a rainy afternoon in China photographed by Eric Lafforgue:

“Blue makes no noise.

It is a timid color, without ulterior motives, forewarning or plan; it does not leap out at the eye like yellow or red do, but rather draws it in, taming it little by little, letting it come unhurriedly, so that it sinks in and drowns in it, unaware.”

“Le bleu ne fait pas de bruit.

C’est une couleur timide, sans arrière-pensée, présage, ni projet, qui ne se jette pas brusquement sur le regard comme le jaune ou le rouge, mais qui l’attire à soi, l’apprivoise peu à peu, le laisse venir sans le presser, de sorte qu’en elle il s’enfonce et se noie sans se rendre compte de rien.” Jean Michel Maulpoix

  1. mais quel régal! absolument délicieux de couleurs de mouvements de parfum enivrant le regard – MERCI!

  2. You simply bring big joyful smiles
    seared with warm rays of your reds
    and penetrating cools of blues
    to our beating hearts & thrilled faces.
    Pouring showers of kind smiles upon you!

  3. “I hear the question upon your lips: What is it to be a colour?
    Colour is the touch of the eye, music to the deaf, a word out of the darkness. Because I’ve listened to souls whispering – like the susurrus of the wind – from book to book and object to object for tens or thousands of years, allow me to say that my touch resembles the touch of angels. Part of me, the serious half, calls out to your vision while the mirthful half sours through the air with your glances.

    I’m so fortunate to be red! I’m fiery. I’m strong. I know men take notice of me and that I cannot be resisted.
    I do not conceal myself: For me, delicacy manifests itself neither in weakness nor in subtlety, but through determination and will. So, I draw attention to myself. I’m not afraid of other colours, shadows, crowds or even of loneliness.

    How wonderful it is to cover a surface that awaits me with my own victorious being! Wherever I’m spread, I see eyes shine, passions increase, eyebrows rise and heartbeats quicken. Behold how wonderful it is to live! Behold how wonderful to see. I

    I am everywhere. Life begins with and returns to me. Have faith in what I tell you.”

    ― Orhan Pamuk, My Name is Red

  4. Superbes photos.
    Je note que le bleu est attirant. C’est sans doute pour cette raison que je privilègie le bleu ciel pour mes chemises ….
    Does it work ?

  5. What to say after Ajays’ post..
    and such a wonderful poem

    I will just say that colours live and love and cry and dream. They mourn in grey and black and red with gunfires, they flow in green as on the Steve mac Curry’s portrait of the Afgahn girl,
    They rain in pink grey and pearl and shine sous le ciel de Paris, or in the eyes of Edith Piaf when she sings “plus bleu”.

    They make a new rainbow with myriad of tones in the playgrounds of the schools between the deep
    sky and the drought earth in Africa

    May we continue to see and feel the colors as food for our eyes and love for life

  6. You really are amazingly talented and always open to new possibilities. Good for you.

  7. The blog is absolutely breath taking the colors vibrant and the pictures ALIVE.

  8. Impressionant ton truc! Magique!
    On dirait qu’il suffit de pianoter sur ces claviers aux touches de couleurs pour qu’il se dégage des notes multicolores.
    Ca permet des subtilités, en combinant des nuances dans des compositions qui rendent l’image sublime. C’est presque surréel!
    Ca parait simple, et pourtant malgrès tout a travers cette simplicité le talent se distingue et reste quand même roi.

  9. What a lovely nice post. I love the colors. It remind me of a poem I wrote many years ago on colors of life, a poetic perspective on the colors that fits to post here under this beautiful blog of yours. Thank you

    Colors of life

    Red, yellow, and blue,
    Wine, honey, see-through,
    Versus war, famine, curfew.

    There is flood, shedding blood,
    Some in the mud, thanking the God,
    Some count the days, behind the rod.

    There is orange, lots of brown,
    The set of the sun, beauty of the dawn,
    Class of the poor, class of crown,
    The sad, and the bad, and the faking clown.

    Green is the light, color of the peace,
    Allowing to go, allowing to kiss.
    Trees are plenty, forests are many,
    Cutting all of them for the sake of money

    Bright is the birth, so dark is the death,
    The white like a bird, black like a hearth.

    Color of the love, is the red, is the best.
    It is wonderful when the birds form a nest.

    The best of the all are colors of the life
    The husband, the sons, and daughters with the wife

    And I love the white, peace and joy not the fight,
    We don’t need to fight if the mind is bright.

    And I love the red, life alive not the dead.
    We are like a dead, love-less life with dread.
