Light Blue Year

A new year and a new color scheme: On filmmaker Wim Wender's official website, I was doing research about the documentary he made about legendary Japanese Director, Yasujiro Ozu called Tokyo Ga. There is no DVD as yet; however, I moseyed to Wender's gallery of photography and came across #49 The Orange Building, Havana! Seems I found the color scheme I've been leaning toward for the last 10 days. The same light blue keeps turning up.

Wender's Picture Haiku

Some colors were reoccurring
all the time in Havana.
The explanation I was given
for all those cars
of the same light blue, was
that a couple of years ago
blue had been the only paint available.
There had been green or yellow years as well.
