Travel theme: Orange

I know, this is a cheat but I just wanted an excuse to post another image from Falmouth 1977, from a time when orange was just a fruit and not a telco and apples were for eating not touching.  This local painter does not look exactly happy in his work but the weather is gloomy and there is a sharp wind blowing across the harbour – perhaps he just wants to go home.

I cheated with something else too – the orange is sampled from here 🙂

    That’s an interesting 70s orange. I can visualize many couches with upholstery that color. :O

      😀 – it would go so well with the purple curtains.

    I really like that you left the “spots” of yellow”…that really added to the interest and mood for me.

      Many thanks – not so much ‘left’ as added many years later 🙂
