Thanks to Maria Norman-Freytag from Travel Curious Often I’ve been asked to participate in Travel Supermarket’s Capture the Colour contest. While I’m an amateur photographer at best and know I don’t stand a shot compared with some hardcore and quite frankly skilled photographers out there, it ‘s still fun to participate all the same.
This was the Chinese exhibit at the Phipps Conservatory’s annual flower show in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The use of the red made me think of the country’s famous acrobatic performers.
GREEN At Kentuck Knob, a home in Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highland designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the color green is everywhere. I thought this particular image captured the color perfectly since it was seen through one of the home’s many perfectly shaped skylights.
YELLOW While our breakfast at the Grand California’s Storyteller’s Cafe was somewhat of a disappointment, the interior decor was not. The yellow used in this part of the restaurant’s design created a perfect amber sunset.
While Brussels’ Manneken Pis is graced in an assortment of flower colors, the blue ones are the recurring theme here. One could count the number of yellow or red flowers on the garland, but the blue flowers are simply flowing and innumerable.
I took this picture of the frozen shores of Lake Michigan from my plane seat when on my way to Chicago. I traveled there only a few days after the city had been hit with its worse blizzard in more than a decade. Thankfully the storm didn’t disrupt my travel plans and allowed for some pretty spectacular aerial shots.
Now for the part where I tag five other bloggers. I would love to see shots from these incredible bloggers and photographers who I haven’t seen nominated yet:
