The Daily Hex: Puce

2014-06-04

You’ll never look at fleas the same way again after browsing through this gallery of Puce lomographs!

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!

Puce has a rather bizarre etymology. A French word for flea, this brownish purple color resembles the color of the stains left by fleas, either from its droppings or after it has been crushed, on white linens. Sounds morbid but don’t let this repel you from enjoying today’s The Daily Hex. Just have a quick look at these Puce-filled photos to wash away that icky thoughts:
