Color Studies and the Quirky

Studying colour is not a new concept to artists and filmmakers, but how many people are aware of how colours in their surroundings interact and play together?  How do these combinations make you feel?  I love seeing the intentional use of colour to create atmosphere and evoke emotion.

I came across a collection of images from an online photo challenge called “Vibrant Colors” The image below really stood out to me.  The amazing combination of colours, the unusual style of the house, paired with the placement and colour of the van made me feel like it was a still image pulled from a quirky film set.  From the comments I saw attached to this image it appears that this was photographed in the neighbourhood that the photographer grew up in in Los Angeles.

Sigh.  I miss LA!
