Pink

*****
The Color Psychology of Pink
Pink is essentially a light red and is usually associated with love and romance.
Pink is thought to have a calming effect. One shade known as "drunk-tank pink" is sometimes used in prisons to calm inmates. Sports teams sometimes paint the opposing teams locker room pink to keep the players passive and less energetic. While the calming effect has been demonstrated, researchers of color psychology have found that this effect only occurs during the initial exposure to the color. When used in prisons, inmates often become even more agitated once they become accustomed to the color. How do you feel about pink?

I didn't know all that about pink. I find pink is a color more suitable for women. Sometimes male golfers wear pink shirts and it doesn't do them any favors. Pink shorts are even worse! :)

Beautiful floral shot!

Pink is a pretty pastel. It is associated with femininity (see Lowell's comment!) which is really ingrained in our culture.

The flower is beautiful.

I like pink flowers, but that's about it!

I've never really been a pink girl myself, but I don't mind bright fuchsia shades like this. And, no, it's not soothing at all.

I love pink flowers, especially roses but I don't really wear it all that often, I'm more of a blue girl myself :) but I do like your 'pink-squared' image very much Barb :)
