Today, I thought I would combine the Crayola colors Black and Blue.  They are often combined aren’t they?

Blue has made the rounds in the Crayola collection. From 1903-1958 it was known as Blue. The same color was called Celestial Blue from 1935-1949 and from 1949-1958 it was called Azure Blue! I would like to have the job of naming colors at Crayola. I would say it is a steady job, wouldn’t you?

My black and blue photos are of the Crucufixion scene that is on the vineyard hillside in Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy. It was stunning especially at night. We were there in June and July. They must leave it up year round since the terrible floods that nearly washed away their village in 2011. The Black and the Blue. Here is a personal account of what happened that day.  Today, Vernazza is as beautiful as ever! The five villages of Cinque Terre are unforgettable!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Enjoy!
