Yellow

Yellow is one of the primary colours and is usually associated with, joy, sunshine, warmth and nature (eg autumn, spring flowers etc) but sometimes warning, treachery and betrayal.

•Yellow can also be applied as a creative tool in photography. The ’Golden hour’, is the period of daylight that occurs just after sunrise and just before sunset and has a distinctively yellow hue. During this window, daylight is at its softest and warmest.

•Yellow has strong historical and cultural significance in China, where it is the colour of glory, royalty, happiness, and wisdom. However, in many Latin American cultures, yellow is associated with death, sorrow, and mourning and similarly in some parts of the Middle East.

•In Japanese culture, yellow signifies courage, refinement and wealth (associated with gold

•In Africa, yellow is worn to signify high ranking members of a community. Saffron, a bright orange – yellow is considered sacred in India etc, representing selflessness and courage.

Use tag ass-2023-01 for this assignment. Just one photo per member please.

Tree of the Year 2022

The Woodland Trust has named the 500 year old Yew tree at Waverley Abbey as Tree of the Year 2022. So we thought it might be interesting to run this as an assignment over the next few months so members can get over there and perhaps take shots in different seasons, different lighting conditions etc.

You might recall that Gachou led a photoshoot to Waverley Abbey back in 2020 so I expect some of you may already have some good shots if this magnificent tree and its roots.etc

If you don’t have a photo of the Abbey tree, a good photo of another ancient tree will be acceptable too.

Up to two photos for review at our April meeting may be submitted per member using tag tree-2022-11 in the Guildford U3A Photography Flickr group.
