What you see is what you get
Project Spectrum has made me think much more about how people have their colours. Colours that you seem to see more than others, not because they are brighter or stronger to the world but because they are to you. Inside and out I am surrounded by the greens, browns and metallics yet they make much less impact to my view of the world.
For the first couple of months of Project Spectrum photos jumped out at me while this time I've looked much harder for them - the greens, browns and metallics are there in far more plentiful variations than the reds, oranges and pinks but I rarely see them. These makes me realise one of the reasons I feel winter is so colourless; although we are rarely whited out with snow it is mainly brown and green colours that abound outside.
I wonder whether how we see colours is simply a matter of the numbers of types of cone cells in our retinas or something we learn? However we get there, I love the thought that the same image of a room or view must look subtly different depending on your colour viewfinder.Photo from: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rafaelrubira/133925088/
