Primary Colours

Japan’s Primary Colours. Green Yellow Orange White. These are the colors you’re most likely to see in shrines and temples across the country. The orange/red is also unlike any Ive seen before. Its truely unique to the country, as you can see from my photo essay on the Fushimi Inari Shrine from a few weeks ago.

Oh and I recently made it to the Nominees in the PhotoBlog Awards… If you vote for me I’ll send you a cup cake! A huge thank you if you already have!

    The lines and the bold colours are a fest for the eyes. Outstand and minimalistic shot.

    Simple, but visually very rich. I especially like the hand painted nature of this. Great eye!

    Yup, this is abstract and I like it, I'd never be able to take a shot like this so I'm glad you did.

    Simple but superb. Love the pattern of colours and lines.

  • Richard Hollins on 23.10.2009 @ 03:26

    Love this. Superb bold verticals and striking colours. I also like the contrast between the highlights and shadows. It looks like a very simple picture but there's lots going on here.

  • don on 23.10.2009 @ 07:18

    Good eye to spot this patterned effect and get a fine shot of it. Wonderful crisp detail and solid colors. Very well done.

    Hey - a good abstract, with some smashing strong colours.

  • martie on 25.10.2009 @ 22:59

    Beautiful, bright colors and yet you keep the feeling of this shot very minimilistic. It's a great photo!

  • yiannis krikis on 26.10.2009 @ 06:11

    great grafisme and colors

  • joshi daniel on 26.10.2009 @ 06:28

    nice abstract and nice colors and use of lines!

  • Ariel on 26.10.2009 @ 06:39

    This is the kind of image I get when I am terribly bored and start to see things in a different way. Unfortunately happens very rarely, so when I see something like this I really enjoy it. I wish I could see things like these the whole time.
    Great eye.

  • crash on 26.10.2009 @ 07:02

    nice! looks like a painting !
