Colors of Life

Have you ever imagined life without color? We are so used to seeing colors that they have become something we take for granted. We can judge the significance of colors with the fact that most are associated with our emotions and different activities in life. White symbolizes peace, red symbolizes both love & anger, yellow is for friendship, green implies jealousy.

All colors have their own place. But what if our life had no colors? How would things look, and most importantly, how would our pictures look? For this post, we’ve collected around 30 examples to show you the importance and significance of colors in our life. Check out how colors add a zing, and gives new life to these images.

    Truly stunning photography, although I think that some of the colours are over-saturated leading me to prefer the black & white ones. Or maybe I’m just awkward ;)

    Simply stunning. One of my favorite parts of designing a website is choosing a color pallet pulled from a photograph. I’m certain this post alone will keep me coming back time and time again, thanks!

    well yeah. but the photographers have fiddled with the colours far too much (on most of them anyway). Talk about re-touch overload. I guess that’s the way photography is going these days.
