On this blogger site one can click on all pictures except for the header two times each time making them larger which is a feature I like because it gives you the ability to really look very close at all kinds of things not readily seen.

Sunday Stills - Chasing The Blues

Blue's ma color - just the way it is.  Had not used my season pass for the Pueblo Zoo  once since I got it end of Feb. It was time to go there and get some new blue at the same time. So yesterday early these were taken.  Hardly anyone was there.  Fun place.  Shades of blue were had in abundance Saturday and didn't realize how much so until I took a it closer look at a couple.





In the tack room there seems to be plenty of blue activity.

And on the River Walk downtown they like the blues as well.

This is not my kind of blue. The name of this is "Ugly Blue".  Not to pick on the dead but this is one of the reasons Pontiac died.

These two pictures were not taken yesterday but  recently and in Pueblo.  Click on this and there just happens to be bunches of blue going on.  The blue of the bike is very close to my favorite and almost  identical to a common Chevy blue from the 60's.

Lighter shades of blue along the Arkansas River.  The old and huge train station is on the right.

This was fun. Pink would have been different.

  1. I like your idea of seeing the blue in things, to pick a detail to focus on and see what happens. Is that your bike? A good looking one.

  2. Thanks Teresa. I never saw all the different blue when I took these pictures.

    It is my bike and 27 years old maybe 28. It has 20K on it easy and still ticks pretty good.

  13. Love all the different blues, and the Pontiac comment.
    My favorite is the first, mostly because of the eye of one of the birds peeking over the end of the branch, but also because of their lovely shade of blue.

  14. I loved the first one! Of course I like blue so I like all of the above!

    Oh, and peahens are the female of the peacock species!

  16. Thanks for that Eva. There were two other birds with blue in here. It was dark and I'm glad I got the couple good ones of these two. I would take a '65 GTO with 3-deuces and a 4-speed though. Maybe a couple others they made but that's about all.
