Indigo??? who knows ...

Indigo ... seems to be a colour that even the experts cannot agree on. Is it dark blue? dark purple? somewhere in between??? apparently there is no clear answer ... even its inclusion in the colour spectrum is debatable ...  read all about it here

I feel for this debatable colour ... it must be hard being placed on the colour spectrum and then have others declare that you shouldn't really be there ...

I guess if indigo wants an understanding shoulder to lean on it could turn to Pluto ... who once was a planet and included in the solar system as such and now isn't ...

So I am declaring indigo to mean any colour between blue and violet that is dark in nature and can't otherwise be classed and you just wanna call something indigo ... and i am declaring it a happy, intuitive, beautiful colour ... one that is wanted and coveted by all ... one that looks like this ...


see how one side is more purpley than the other .... yeah ... somewhere in there i think you find indigo

 this ...
look at the 2 bottles starting with the 3rd to the right ... then kinda squint ... and i think thats indigo

or maybe this ...
kind of a blue toned indigo 

or even this ...
kind of a purple indigo

This is wonderful! I'm certainly a supporter of indigo and Pluto!

Kat said...

Love the photos, but your reference to Pluto made me laugh out loud. Guess Holst had it right when he composed "The Planets" :) Kat

Great pictures, Jo..I will just have to think of indigo as a cross of blue and purple..

Sue said...

I think we're kind of on the same page about indigo, but you had more empathy...

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Jo these were such good photos of you and your daughter! You look good in indigo!

Jenny said...

I'm telling you, Jo. You can totally rock the indigo look.

And you can totally talk the indigo talk.

And I'm pretty sure if there was such a thing as indigo walk you would be able to do it!

Because you are obviously the master of indigo.

And you are obviously one of the Rainbow Summer School geniuses!

Super neat link!

A+

I always think of blue-black when I think of indigo - that illusive shade.
