Because sometimes... we all need fifteen minutes of procrastination.
My most recent time-guzzling obsession? A website entitled "The Color Of."
I love this! Type a word in the search bar -- absolutely anything -- and the website will overlay more than 50 random Flickr photos that are tagged with whatever you enter. The results are gorgeous!
You can find "the color of" actual colors:
or elements of nature:
or relative concepts:
or contrasting ideas:
I am fascinated by:
- How aesthetically appealing / canvas-like each of these images are. As in, I want to cover my room in them. Gorgeous. Apparently, you'll be able to order prints from the website soon.
- How humans (or maybe it's just me) relate colors with words, ideas, people, etc.. and how some colors just seem to fit & are universal, while others are associated so differently.
So now that you're equally as enthralled as I am by "The Color Of" (you're welcome), head on over to their site & try it out for yourself! Leave a comment below with some of the words you searched -- what were your favorites?
And simply because I promised a birthday shout-out:
