When you have tritanomaly, blue often looks green.  You observe enough raised eyebrows and you lose confidence in your ability to tell the difference.  You begin consulting a non-afflicted expert when the difference matters, like picking out shoes to match your shirt.    But if you see blue and I see green, who is correct?  Well, since only one in 10,000 of us is a tritanope, correctness always resides with the majority – the non-afflicted.

Does it matter what we label colors?  I don’t think so, generally.  But on this one day of the year, if you are of Irish descent, getting it right matters.

I am a semi-professional photographer, with the passion of a true amateur, drawn primarily to nature and travel, but open to and intrigued by most everything. In 2014, I began working on a 52-Week Photo Project, posting one photo a week that expressed something about that week – a theme, a story, a feeling. My intent was to add an element of story-telling to my work. That project was successfully completed in September 2015 and is all stored in the archive here. After a several month break, I began a new 12-month project. Each month in 2016 I will present a group of carefully curated images – a sort of thematic portfolio – along with an essay. My intent is to improve my editing skills and, of course, motivate me to keep on shooting. Please follow me and let me know what you think. You can see more of my work on my website: www.kathleengillphotography.com.
