It is said that the human eye can distinguish about 500 shades of gray.  It is also said that gray is boring, conservative and unemotional.  I find gray fascinating.  To name a few, it is the color of metal, stones, volcanic ash; also of maturity, futurism and wisdom.  The color gray evokes mystery, timelessness, wisdom, changing mood, misty places and unsual atmospheres.  

A multitude of images come to my mind when I think about gray color names such as: wood ash, cathedral gray, forged iron, silver fog, shark skin, gunmetal, dove gray, chronium, tarnished silver, elephant skin, ash gray, silvery moon, lead, sabre gray, dolphin gray, cinder gray, fossil gray, gray cloud, Krypton gray, stormy gray, gray hippo, silver rain, witching hour gray, deep cavern gray ...
