Its A Colourful World
There is so much colour in the world for our enjoyment.
Colour astounds me. I find myself extremely drawn to it. Scientifically it is fascinating how the rods and cones in our eyes are part of how we see colour, but our experiences can also shape the colours we see. Check out this quote from Wikipedia:
"The Himba people have been found to categorize colors differently from most Euro-Americans and are able to easily distinguish close shades of green, barely discernable for most people. The Himba have created a very different color scheme which divides the spectrum to dark shades (Zuzu in Himba), very light (Vapa), Vivid blue and green (Buru) and dry colors as an adaptation to their specific way of life.
Perception of color depends heavily on the context in which the perceived object is presented. For example, a white page under blue, pink, or purple light will reflect mostly blue, pink, or purple light to the eye, respectively; the brain, however, compensates for the effect of lighting (based on the color shift of surrounding objects) and is more likely to interpret the page as white under all three conditions, a phenomenon known as color constancy."
How cool is that? It is also very interesting to think about all the colours we can't see. Some animals and birds have evolved with more complex colour vision systems so may have the ability to perceive more colours or perceive colours at lower light levels.
