At least we know it’s not navy

Indigo is an analog-world favourite of mine. Once again, the digital world has defied me by calling apples oranges, as it were, and suggesting that a hella vivid blue is indigo, when we all know that indigo is delicious because it is deep but dim. The Wikipedia entry for indigo is particularly fascinating, and it tells us that it’s not just our imaginations that may be failing us on this colour challenge, but our eyesight: “The human eye is relatively insensitive to hue changes in the wavelengths between blue and violet, where [Isaac] Newton defined indigo to be; most individuals do not distinguish indigo from blue and violet.”

If I’m offering up two outfits for this week’s 52 Weeks of Color challenge, it’s because I want to cover all possible indigos. I say it looks like RezIpsa Loc’s funky jeans. W&B, one of the official coloristas for Luna Jubilee’s challenge, offers us a hue closer to violet in its adorable skirt. And Muhi gives us a jacket in the colour Black Acqua, which could be a deliberately perverse way of saying indigo. Speaking of perverse, there’s indigo boobs, or blewbs as they’re known in the business, on my Flickr page.
