I love colour, so when 2Summers, a great blog by Heather, who lives in South Africa, nominated me to join a contest called Capture the Colour, I thought I would take part.
The blog award/contest is sponsored by TravelSupermarket and the idea is to write a post featuring photos that capture the five following colours: blue, green, yellow, white and red. I searched through my photos and found these. I couldn’t settle on just 1 from each colour, there are just too many to choose from.
This lovely little statue was in Ravello on the Amalfi Coast.
The Arno is not always blue, but it was the day I took this photo of a lone rower from the Ponte Vecchio. I love the ripples left behind by the oars. It could also have been in the White category because of the boat.
These makeshift blue waterproof boots took my eye on a wet day in Venice.
I had to include our baby blue Fiat. I wrote this post in 2010 and it has been my most popular post ever. It has had more than 3,000 hits. I think it is time Fiat gave us a car.
The next photo was taken from the window of a Finnair plane as we were about to land in Helsinki. I love the shades of blue.
Bagni di Lucca turns all shades of green in spring.
I love green tree frogs, and this one lives on my Brisbane balcony.
I would like to be around when these figs get ripe in Portovenere.
The little green boat captured my attention in Ajaccio, Corsica.
Sardinia is a phtotgrapher’s delight. This cute green boat was floating off the coast at Porto Cervo.
Autumn in Bagni di Lucca is my favourite time of year.
Zucchini flowers in the food market in Florence look gorgeous.
The yellow shoe stood out at Guidi leather in Pescia.
Nothing is a cheerful as bright yellow flowers. These were in Paris.
The cemetery in Bonifacio, Corsica is said to be the second most beautiful in the Mediterranean. I would like to see the one that beats it. This could also be in Blue…..decisions, decisions.
This church in Porto Cervo surely has to be one of the cutest in the world. This could be Blue too…for obvious reasons.
The huge white magnolias were out in force in Lucca in spring.
I love the white glove, and the guard at the Vittorio Emanuelle building in rome is cute too.
This huge white seagull attracted quite an audience in Rome.
The stunning white cathedral in Helsinki looks wonderful surrounded with snow….once again, it could be Blue.
The Carnevale in Viareggio is a fun place to people watch.
The Joker was also at the Carnevale in Viareggio this year.
I loved these red shoes at the Sagra del Tordo in Montalcino.
Sunset in Lucca can be spectacular.
I photographed this prize winning rooster at the Ekka ( a festival where the country meets the city ) in Brisbane last year.
The next 2 photos taken in Paris include all the colours…just for fun.
The really difficult bit is to pass on the award to 5 other bloggers. I have tried to pass it on to those who might like to be involved. Some of my favourite bloggers have already received the award and some may not be interested. Anyway, here is my list, please take a look at their lovely blogs.
Dakota.D….a great photography blog
Reinventing the event horizon….say hello to Kathy
A Taste of Travel….great travel photos and tips
The shooting star…an intrepid Indian girl’s world travels
Just add attitude…..reporting from Ireland.
Two of the bloggers I nominated don’t want to take part, so I am adding 2 more. They have great blogs with excellent photos, take a look.
