Color Study

I don't do color photography very often for a couple of reasons.  The main reason is because I'm color blind.  Not just a little color blind, but severely color blind.  I was once told by an opthamologist that I don't see color at all.  I think he was wrong because I think I live in a colorful world just as most everyone else does, except that all the color I see is completely different than you. I've generally stuck with black and white photography for the last 20 years because I don't have to worry about trying to get the color "right".  The following images are obviously quite a departure from anything I've done since...well, forever.. Normally when I'm out shooting photographs, I'm composing and "thinking in black and white".  Thinking about shades of gray, light, and contrast.  For these images, I was not doing that, but was looking at the colors and composing and shooting for them.  Since these are pretty abstract, I wasn't too worried about getting the color "right".   I'm not sure if these work or not.  Let me know what you think in the comment section.
