All Stars, Some Grass, And A Dandelion:Evoking Summer

What is it about this picture which is so appealing?  The colours are great!  The green is so rich, the yellow so bright and sunny, the blue of the sneakers whimsical, and the little pink line around the toe is a lovely touch.  Did the makers of Converse sneakers have this sort of thing in mind when they designed these shoes?  I’m pretty sure they did not.

Maybe the appeal comes from imagining the fun the person is having who has stepped out of these sneakers on this bright sunny day.  Maybe lying on a blanket in the sun with a good book, or no book at all just enjoying the feeling of summer.  Perhaps running around enjoying the feeling of the fresh grass under foot.

Whatever feeling or ideas are evoked by such a picture they are bound to be positive and that is just what is called for as we come into the holiday weekend that really begins summer in North America.
