LOC-SD

Lately I`ve been posting with lots of colour, or at least trying to.




We have all heard of S.A.D., Seasonal Affective Disorder and how it can make these winter months seem like forever!




But I have just realized that along with the depletion of day-light hours and the `good`benefits of sunshine, we also lack colour stimulation this time of year. Everything is so drab and dull.




So I will attempt to remedy the potentially lethal disease I call LOC-SD (Lack Of Colour-Stimulation Disorder) and hopefully  `short-circuit` it`s devastating effects.




So, be it resolved, I will do my share to help in the fight to prevent my fellow bloggers from getting this dreadful winter affliction!

  1. Hey Jim...glad you found my colorful lettuce and more so my blog, so I could find yours. I love the light you caught with the colorful flags. I did a little looking around and your beach shots remind me of my beach shots and we both have a dog and some of your close-ups remind me of mine. We must have a lot in common.
    I'm following you along as well. We're in for big snow tomorrow so I'm going to drink in as much sun and colour today to avoid SAD and LOC-SD too.
    Have a great day.

  3. I think if I put out colored flags, people would slow down or stop, trying to figure out their meaning and drive the dogs nuts! :-)

  4. I agree! I'm definitely going to start looking for more color to photograph this time of year!

  5. Thanks for thinking of my health and welfare. You were thinking of me, specifically, right?

  10. Blimey Jim, I think you might be really onto something there. In winter everything goes grey (like you said) and in spring and summer (which everyone says are their favourite months), colour is everywhere. I LURVE the concept.

  11. We get the same thing - S.A.D. - down here in our winter but I appreciate how much worse it must be for you folk in snow-bound countries. A form of 'Cabin Fever'? Nice colour Jim, your flags look like coloured paper sheets with printing on them????

  12. Yes John, they are sheets of cotton called Tibetan Prayer Flags with prayers on them that blow all over the community....it's the thought that counts and works.

  13. What? There's more than white out there?
    Thanks for asking about our storm, Jim. We're climbing out of it now. We didn't get much snow, only about 4 inches, but it got down to minus 15F with wind chills in the minus 30s. Brr.

  14. Nice flags. Nice colour! Even here in the southern U.S. where we usually don't have snow (though we currently do - and LOTS of ice!) there is not a lot of color stimulation. Most things are brown and gray. I like your theory for LOC-SD. Amusing, too. :)

  17. Thank you so much for posting these beautiful and colorful shots. You are right! Just what I needed : )

  18. I agree with you about color. I have come to realize I simply must have it. (I had long thought that umbrellas should no longer be made in black. Imagine the fun of a rainy day if every umbrella were a color!)

    Happy Day.

  19. I think you may be quite right - even a clear blue sky makes such a difference after days of gray! Thank you for posting your gorgeous photographs.

  20. I'm always reluctant when a client wants a nuetral monochromatic design in their home. While it makes for a nice retreat away from all the "noise" of the world in the warmer months. It can work against you in the winter. So I'll find ways to add punches of color for the colder months.

    ( I don't always work with the metaphysically impaired you know)
