Colorful world in photography: Green.

The following words are synonymous with green and represent various shades of the color green: olive, pine, mint, apple, sea green, aquamarine, lime).

We can associate the color green in nature with grass, plants, vegetables such as cucumbers, zucchini, green peppers, brussel sprouts, spinach, fruits such as kiwi, limes, green grapes, green apples.

The color green arouses associations with abstract concepts with positive meaning (nature, health, youth, peace, harmony, relaxation, trust, prosperity) and with negative meaning (illness, jealousy, inexperience).

There are many set expressions with the word “green”: “little green men” (humanoid-like creatures from another planet), “to be green with envy” (the state of being jealous of the good fortune of another person), “a greenroom” (a backstage room in a theatre or television studio where actors may rest or receive guests), “the Green Movement” (the social trend toward ecology).

Pedro Calderon de la Barca, Spanish poet and playwright, who lived in the 17th century, wrote: “Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.”
