Cold Turning You Blue?


Cheer up, Spring is almost here. Soon this bench will have people sitting on it enjoying warmer weather but not now. If you do you could end up with wet pants.

A nice lovely catch!
It must be so great to be surrounded with all these pretty colors all the time..
It surprises me though that there is a chain and lock..to keep it there..
Wishing you a wonderful thursday Randy :)

Excellent humorous title...

Oh, dear, not much longer for spring, I hope!

VP said...

I would obviously like this for my benches!

Michael Rowland said...

That seat is Kind of Blue,,,M

Sharon said...

There is just something about this color that is so appealing.

I think that Santa Fe has cornered the market on this intense shade of blue... It is beautiful against the whiteness of the snow...

Here it's the opposite, soon summer will be finished. :(
Nice shot, nice title!
Have a good day!

Great to see the matching door and bench. Maxed the photo to see the very nice carving and noted the chain and lock...too bad that's necessary these days. If you're really "into benches" you need to see VJ's blog, "A Bunch of Benches" at http://abunchofbenches.blogspot.com/

Santa Fe has so much of this gorgeous blue. I wonder why . . .

Dindin MK said...

Playing with color is always fun and interesting! Like your photo...

Dawn said...

Ahhhh...color! Is that really color? (I fell like my eyes don't work in color anymore- all I see is white...)

Beautiful bench.

Magpie said...

Such wonderful contrast. Now I will always think of this shade of blue as Santa Fe Blue. :)
I'm breathing and relaxing. Thanks for your kind words.

I'd just sweep off the snow & have a seat!
I love the color theme in Santa Fe!
Hope your classes are going well.

I'll be looking for the "Now" photo in a few weeks!

Luis Gomez said...

Yes, Randy really waiting for Spring. Nice shot, love the blue with the snow.

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Fabulous colors! Snow looks a bit foreign, though. I did play golf yesterday. Probably shouldn't tell you this but it was in the low 80s.

Spring will soon be here.

Jarart said...

The color and shapes are so pleasing to look at.

EG Wow said...

Whoa! It must have been very cold. I believe that bench is shivering!

L.D. said...

Oh I love this! The brilliant blue plus the chilly sheet of white..great

Marty said...

texwisgirl said...

Definitely brightens up a winterscape!

cieldequimper said...

Unless of course you walk around in oilskins.

I know someone who is going to "steal" this one! It's lovely!

JM said...

I never tire of looking at these blues against the adobe walls. Fantastic!

Allison said...

I love that color blue! Ahem... don't I always say that? Well, I do. AND the bench!

Carola Bartz said...

The color in Santa Fe always fascinates me. Wonderful shot.

Traveling Hawk said...

Very nice, Randy! Why is that bench chained? Could the winter take it away? :)

Leif Hagen said...

And nobody wants wet pants - I just hate that!

Love the blue and adobe mix!

RedPat said...

There's your blue again! Nice shot.

Sequim Daily Photo said...

With that kind of color around there, it must inspire cheerful moods/days! I hope to get there some day and see it all for myself in person. I especially want to check out adobe buildings, not something you see around here.

Regina K said...

I agree very Santa Fe blue!!!

Doug Hickok said...

A beautiful hue of blue, made all the handsomer by the clean line of the snow. A Blue Ribbon photo!

Randy said...

For those who have asked, the bench is chained up to keep it from being stolen. There are benches here that cost quite a bit especially if the carver comes from a long line of family carvers.

T. Becque said...

Nice contrast with the blue and snow!

NYC In Photographs said...

That blue really jumps up out of the picture. Very nice!

Photohunter said...

Ein schöner Platz zum ausruhen.

Wonderful composition! The nice blue color bench and door.
