Crayola Photo Challenge- Navy Blue

On the surface, Midnight Blue and Navy Blue seem like the same color. But then when you're forced to find a color match, you can pick up on the oh so subtle differences.

As it turns out, Midnight Blue is a little darker, deeper and richer than its cousin, Navy Blue. At quick glance they really do look like the same color, but now I can make out the tiny differences between these blues. In contrast, Navy Blue, is a little lighter and brighter.

I had great inspiration yesterday for taking photos. A trip to the farmer's market always does the trick. But I've been lucky enough to have my father-in-law's house as a backdrop as well. Lots of ocean and pool shots, but we've also been able to share the idyllic atmosphere with some of our friends, including the super sweet and adorable Sophia! Sophia's momma was sporting a blue bathing suit and a blue dress and I was confident that one of those would do the trick. They would have, but when I threw up my color swatch up against the picture below I was so happy to see that technically, Sophia has navy blue eyes!

Unfortunately, when I took the picture of the swatch, it just didn't look right.

Let me digress for a moment...How insanely adorable is this little munchkin? For the few minutes she let me hold her yesterday, I showered her perfectly round face with little kisses.

Now that I'm over the sadness that Sophia's eyes aren't a perfect navy blue match, I was able to see that this picture taken at the farmer's market does do the trick:

PS- Does anyone know what this is? It's not a fig, right? Someone, please educate me!

Here are my other attempts at capturing navy blue.
