If you like colour you may just love this picture. I do. It’s from the Sydney colour run for further details and a larger version of the image see the original story in The Guardian.
Rafael Benitez has not exactly been the most popular appointment as Chelsea Manager. I can understand the Chelsea fans’ disappointment. I would be distraught if Benitez was brought in to head up the club I support. However, fair’s fair. This week Benitez was criticised by Chelsea fans for wearing a red tie rather than a blue one; red being the colour of Liverpool football club where Benitez used to manage and is perhaps suspected of still having loyal ties. However, as you can see from the photograph, he was clearing wearing an orange tie not a red one. What does this mean? Are Chelsea fans colour blind? All of them? Have a we discovered a new phenomenon? If anyone would like to fund research into colour vision of football fans please get in touch.

Interesting article about a guy who built his own colour-measurement device at home from simple components.
French photographer born in Toulouse and living in Saint Tropez Philippe Shangti dares everything with a disconcerting ease, fashion, decoration and photography of course. His work is amazingly flashy and provocative in psychedelic sets! Love the kinda trashy sense of humor, colors and exaggerations... it totally makes me laugh!
"Philippe Shangti has the favour of contemporary art collectors and of celebrities seduced by his crazy photos.
I am not the world’s expert on fashion but it seems that red has been popular all through spring and summer. I first came across the surge in popularity of red last year when a journalist contacted me to ask my opinion as to why there had been an increase in sales of red kitchen and personal electronic equipment. We both agreed that probably the choice of red may be caused by consumers using colour choice to be bold and energetic in contrast to feeling tied down and depressed by the financial recession. I then listened to the podcast for Spring 2011 on Color Outlook and learned that red has been a popular colour for interior design this year right across the USA.
Now it seems that red has been a popular fashion colour all summer but is due to be replaced in the autumn (or the fall, as some people strangely call it) by yellow; another vibrant and positive colour. For further details see the Babble blog.
My name is Stephen Westland and my blog is called Colour Chat – because I like to chat (informally but hopefully in a way that is informed) about colour. Westland is a reasonably unusual name. Searching on google for my own blog today I noticed there is a company called Colourchat Services Ltd in Nairobi – guess what district they are in? Yes – Westlands. Coincidence or what? I wonder what this company does … perhaps they should sponsor this blog! Haha.
