The joy of putting things in colour order

I recently read that 40 per cent of millennials choose holiday destinations based on whether they’ll photograph well for instagram.

I’m old enough to be a millennial’s mum but I am, it would seem, guilty of the same thing.

With a precious week off coming up, my first thought was ‘Where can I go that will give me plenty of colour to photograph?’ That’s how I ended up in Porto.

I’m just a day in and already I’ve been filling my colour boots. This morning I did a pottery class hosted by Manu Souza where I made and decorated a pot and this afternoon I’m still on a colour high.

These are colour sample discs for the glazes we chose from. I loved watching them being put in colour order, the discs clicking as they were arranged into place and, of course, the final beautiful result. I don’t know about you but I find watching things being put into colour order mesmerising and deeply zen.
