Today's color is....Smog.

Yes, Smog. That icky, thick layer of air that hangs over large metropolitan areas around the globe. Nobody likes smog. It's bad for our lungs, after all. I live near LA. I see the stuff on a regular basis. I' see it anytime I fly into LAX. Or, when heading down to the city floor after a trip to the mountains. There the layer of sludge sits. Smog is not a sight anyone particularly appreciates.

But, have you ever considered the COLOR of Smog? Forget the negative elements for a moment, and look only at the color itself. It's really an interesting, subtle color. A variety of taupe. Not pink, or purple. Not brown or tan, not altogether gray...but a combination of all those elements. And I'm here to suggest that smog (the color, at least) is actually kind of pretty.
