The Daily Hex: Loblolly

Have a bowl of the freshest Loblolly lomographs in today’s The Daily Hex!

What’s a ‘hex’ anyway?

Hex actually pertains to hex values, which are 6-digit hexidecimal numbers that are primarily used in web design. Your photographs can be viewed by hex values and we have almost 1,500 common colors that you can browse through, most of which have names that are quirky, goofy, and downright weird. But don’t be fooled, these colors are real eye candies, too!

Loblolly originally pertains to the thick porridge or soup eaten by sailors. It came from two words “lob” and “lolly”. “Lob” may refer to the sound a porridge with heavy consistency make while it is boiling while "lolly"is an old British dialect for any soup cooked in a pot.

All this talking and explaining is making us hungry. Why don’t you feast your eyes on these Loblolly-filled lomographs while we go and grab a bite?
