November 17, 2010 - 3:35 pm I think…orange is my least favorite color. Implies to me a kind of forced cheerfulness, I think. Reminds me of the boring, hypermoralistic, melodramatic after school specials from the late 1970s I watched as a kid; for some reason, I conceive of the 1970s as being overwhelmingly brown and orange, though maybe that’s just my own bizarre neurology. I do very much like California poppies, though. Anyway, I thought you might want to look at Nat Geo’s gallery of orange by way of complement. http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/photos/life-color-orange/ Reply janaremy November 18, 2010 - 1:32 am How funny that we see orange so differently. To me it is warmth and strength and love. Reply David K. November 17, 2010 - 4:19 pm Oh yeah. Afterschool specials, forced cheerfulness, and John Boehner.
