One could argue that there is no actual yellow, nor orange in these strange pumpkins (so-called by the farmer at this particular market) and if you were in the middle of colour explorations in say a painting course, your argument would be quite on the ball. However, I still see the additional colours. Perhaps it’s the reflection from the orange pumpkins in the bin next to this one, or the acres of sunflowers in the field next to this farmer’s market, or the knowledge that the flesh of these squash is a delicious orange… who knows? I’m enjoying contemplating the possibility that my subconscious imagination is somehow influencing more than my personal perception; it is changing the physical image captured in my camera lens.
