My entry to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge for the week. Go here to join or to see more entries.

Not my favorite colors. My university color, remembering wearing maroon bloomers (ha ha ha am aging myself) as our physical education uniform in gymnastic which meant we needed to do tumbling. Nothing complicated. Even then my weight pushed me down and I couldn’t tumble. Am sure my instructor just gave me a passing grade just so he won’t see me again, either that or he realized the skill would not make or break us in the future.

It was also my firm’s color for many years. Imagine having large wreaths every Christmas adorned in burgundy ribbon. It was a relief when they changed it to yellow.

  10. I like wines and burgundies (perhaps because of their association with drinking). Red used to be my favourite but as I’ve got older more muted colours suit better

    Burgundy is a mature color. It does not have the fierceness of reds. But burgundy is classy too while red sometimes could have the opposite effect.
