Orange and other harvest shades

Orange adds warmth to a picture, hints at sunshine, and lingers like the memory of the sunbleached fields of autumn. It also lingers like the memory of kitchen stoves and refrigerators of my childhood (in the Harvest Gold era, when there were also burnt umber ovens and tangerine-colored culottes). The colors of copper and gold can both seem orange, depending on their shades. But the best color I’ve ever seen has been on Scotch bonnet peppers, with their promise of heat.

This photo is of some lusterware, a polymer clay art piece by the Gardener, and the edge of a mango. As in the other “shooting the rainbow” posts, I’ve put more color inspiration photos here, Including at least one where my camera’s reflection shows up in the shiny surface of the luster pattern.
