#318 – Pondering Pink
Recently I had a talk with someone who messaged me asking for the link for this blog again, as she had lost all her bookmarks with a new computer and missed reading us with her morning coffee. I was a bit taken aback at first and told her how much it meant to me to know that someone actually read, what was written here. As a blogger I often wonder how many actually read what we write, and not just admire a pretty picture. It is a rare occasion that we get comments or feedback on the content and not the images. It made me smile more than she will ever know, that she does.
It is hard to put yourself out there in words. Sometimes it is easier to put an image, without words because the words are just too hard to write. Other times, it feels like, why bother, because you feel like no one is going to read it anyway. The harder ones are when you pour your very being out on a page, and leave yourself raw, praying that someone will see it, only to feel like no one ever truly sees you, just the pretty picture. It is a hard balance to find and one that I have let slip away more than I like to admit.
So today, you get to hear me ramble and ponder about the color pink. Not a soul bearing kind of post, but maybe in its own way it is.
I am a pink girl , but I am a picky pink girl ! I am picky about the shades of pink that I enjoy. I am not a Pepto Bismol pink, or a ‘ It’s A Girl ‘ baby pink, or a pastel pink girl. I am not a girly girl pink. Skip the ruffles and the lace and give me a nice medium shade of pink. Not too light and not too bright, definitely but hot pink, but a nice in between.
I also find that I wore alot more pink when I was single than I ever have in any relationship I have been in. It is never because I am made to feel like I can’t wear pink, or shouldn’t wear pink, but more my own subconscious that leans away from it, because most guys, wear darker colors. I have a thing, almost an OCD thing, about matching, or at least being similar in contrast. It is a photographer thing, an instinctual contrast balancing function. If the person I am with is wearing dark colors, me wearing lighter colors is too much contrast for a photo and is going to end up requiring alot more work when I am editing any potential pictures later on. So this function of my brain, keeps me from wearing pink, more times than not.
So there is your little insight into my brain today, and since my partner for todays picture was the very cute BunChi from Foxwood I was able to rock the pink because , low contrast !
