Update: Thanks for everyone who has submitted to this assignement. Due to it's size (and the length of time needed to open it) I've decided to end it here at Flickr and continue it over at the Forums. You can now post your blue photos here.

Ok - it's been a while since we did a group assignment (sorry about that, but with a new baby in the house I've been slightly distracted!).

So here's a simple one that bounces off an older post I wrote on using colour in your photos.

In that post I wrote about a photographer who was obsessed with the color green - the results of his obsession were quite spectacular.

So let's spend a week or so taking photos and posting them here that focus on the colour BLUE.

Some of you will already have 'blue photos' and others of us will need to go out of our way to find opportunities to take them. But lets see what we can come up with!

Have fun friends!


PS: if you don't know how to post photos to this forum follow the steps I outline in the intro to this previous assignment.

These pictures are great. I got the link form my Earthlink Elink Newsletter for August.

I am new to this site. I am very amateur, but I want to learn. My husband and daughter are much more professional, but do not have the patience to teach me. I will use your information to learn on my own. I have two Nikon digital cameras. One has 3 megapixels and other has 5. I have a wide angle and a close up lens for the e megapixel camera, nothing but the built in adjustments for the other one.

The shot from lulian M of the Washington Monument with the flag in the foreground looks very much like something my daughter would have had the time and patience to have taken. Thank you for reminding me of her lulian. She is a long way from me and I miss her.

I will be visiting you often and getting pointers from your information. Thank you for letting me join you.

Naxi women in Baisha Village, Yunnan Province, China. Until I read this assignment and begin looking through my photos, I hadn't realized that blue was the only bright color in this photo. Even some of the bricks are blue-tinged. I used a Nikon D-70.

Strait of Georgia, British Columbia. I took about twenty photos from the deck of the Victoria-Vancouver ferry, and this is the only one that wasn't blurred by the pitching and rolling of the vessel. I used a Canon PowerShot A400, so I didn't have much choice of settings.

Grand Central Terminal, New York, NY. I've been thinking and looking for a good 'blue' photo since this assignment hit. Walking around, camera in hand, through the heat and the haze. Then yesterday, walking through Grand Central Terminal, the neon blue of the Chase sign hits me through the corner of my eye. A single woman there digging through her purse. Square up, frame and shoot. I like it.
