I love color.

Don’t get me wrong – I love my black and white – but color draws out the best emotions in me.

A couple of weeks ago I got a great big dose of color in Mysore.

First at the Tibetan settlement at Bylakuppe just outside Mysore, Karnataka, and then at the Lalitha Mahal Palace.

The color inside the Golden Temple in Bylakuppe was very peaceful.

The color at the palace was full of action (the TED India party was there).

And here’s one from the TED India sessions. They had several beautiful saris as the backdrop to the stage. This is the negative of one of the shots I took of the backdrop. I like it better than the original.

Here’s more of my photos from the recent trip to Mysore and TED India.

Now, I am just a dilettante when it comes to color but there are a lot of serious artists who explore color in interesting ways. I really like what Rob and Nick Carter do with their ‘light paintings’. And Tim Bavington translates music to color.  Of course, the grandmaster of color is James Turrell.
