A blog about books. Oh, and some other stuff too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: BLUE

Blue. We’ve done red before, but what about blue? What do you associate blue with? The sky, the ocean…and what else? See how creative you can get with blue.

Love this one …. The colour “blue” has so much meaning for me now.

Jellyfish at the Toronto Zoo

There’s something about the ethereal nature of jellyfish that I find soothing. These pictures are especially memorable for me, as they were taken during a busy holiday Monday visit to the Toronto Zoo with my friend’s little girl.

T is insatiably curious, and, at the tender age of four, you can likely guess what her favourite word might have been. However, all questions were halted when we spotted the jellyfish. Entranced, she and I stood in front of them for at least ten minutes (a lifetime for the under-five set), watching in awe and silence as they leisurely floated in front of our eyes. In time, the spell was broken – perhaps by passing child, perhaps by reaching our own level of peace – and we moved into the sunlight to continue our explorations together.

Share a picture that is BLUE with everyone! 

New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Subscribe to The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

  1. Beautiful, beautiful jellyfish!


  2. Lovely shots of the jellyfish!


  3. jellyfish scare me – growing up in Australia with so many poisionous ones in the sea


    • I was a little hesitant about them in the beginning when I lived there too – after being stung by a Portugese Man-o-War in Bermuda, I didn’t want to repeat the process! That’s why I like them best behind glass.


  4. I too have an unfortunate history with jellyfish, but behind glass and bright blue, they look great. 🙂

  6. These photos reminded me a little bit of Finding Nemo (naturally hehe). Great ‘blue’ interpretation.
