paths to meadowland / greenfobia









Strolling around in Central Park,

Its going to take a while before you see me in the grass though,
I have been trying to dodge the color green in my photos for a while now, so has Maya, my Photographer,

Imagine, just for a second, photos, central park, avoiding the color green.... It was hilarious,

I love nature, I really do, I need nature, I can totally live in a little cabin surrounded by forestry and meadowlands picking berries, wearing ethereal dresses talking to birds and squirrels,

but somehow I hate the saturated color green..... I'm really specific with likings when it comes to the color family of green....

Green is the color that commands the greatest of emotions, for years it was associated with bad luck, its the color of concealment and camouflage, associated with nervous anxiety and envy, the color of fairies and wood nymphs, the color of subconscious fantasy, the color of creation and, therefore, god! Its the most common color in the world, the symbol of environmental peace, purity and freshness, health and rejuvenation. - VIEW ON COLOUR january 1992 -

still in the first stages of getting over my greenfobia, lol... babysteps.... because I really do like how these photos came out!!!

i have a complicated relationship with green too. i think i can remember the 2 or 3 times i've worn it. it suits me but i don't understand what it means! i use it often in photos but somehow i try and minimalize it, organize it, and make it inorganic. like a perfect slice of lawn or something. i let it rip with the flowers though.

Shin said...

Beautiful pictures! I love the color green perhaps not so much in my wardrobe only if it cataches my eye. Wish I could take a walk in central park right now! xxoxoxoxo

AddicteD-tO-faShiOn said...

Jacquie said...

funny, i don't wear green - generally i hate it on clothes (unless it's mint, or emerald) but i LOVE it in nature!

the draping of this dress contrasted with the biker boots is lovely :)

ehh.. Green is such a turn off color. I don't have many things that are green. I still haven't found a shade I really like. I have a few items that I never wear. Maybe just cause it doesn't compliment my skin tone.

Lastly, I live in the country and I get sick because of my allergens.

Love the dress!!

Green does not agree with me at all, which is weird because I have green eyes. I kind of feel you on that one. I really love the gray dress, though. I always love gray.

Ash Fox said...

you did a good job avoiding the green. these photos are lovely.

i am a reiki master.
different green perspective:
green is the color of the fourth chakra,
the heart chakra,
the color of healing.
