The Daily Hex: Maroon

2014-06-30

Take a bite our of chestnut-colored lomographs courtesy of 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!

Coming from the French word marron, Maroon has a rich dark redish-brown color similar to that of a chestnut. It’s deep color gives photographs a mysterious feel as seen in these handpicked lomographs:
