My lovely friend Suzanne, The Travelbunny, has tagged me to take part in this year’s Travelsupermarket competition, Capture the Colour 2013. When you’re at my level it’s just a bit of fun, but the prizes are brilliant, and some of the entries I’ve seen so far are pure inspiration. Nothing to lose, right?
The above shot is my entry for White. I used it in a Six word Saturday post when I’d just returned home from the beautiful Eastern Algarve. I was trying to get the images out of my head and back to my “real world” in England.
Romantic Summer evenings weren’t so easy to forget. Blue was the mood, and leads to my second entry from Tavira, pictured below.
But eventually you settle back in and start to plan for the next excitement. A wedding anniversary certainly helped. The trompe l’oeuil effect in my favourite Italian restaurant in Durham provided me with an interesting Green entry, and a good post for the Lingering look at Windows series.
I looked through a lot of Polish windows earlier this year too, none more lovely then my Yellow entry. The Ratusz stands prominently in the market square, Rynek Główny, in Kraków. I had often looked at it in admiration but it wasn’t till I climbed the tower that I found these gems.
I thought long and hard about my last colour, Red. I know that this isn’t a prize winning shot but to me it’s very special. It captures all the warmth and vibrance of the amazing occasion which was my daughter’s Steampunk wedding this year. My red-haired lady and her beloved cut a dashing pair. Lisa made her gown and Leo’s red frock coat. I think she deserves a place in this post.
I hope you enjoyed my selections as much as I enjoyed the chance to look back. Time to look forward and nominate 5 people to take part in the challenge.
Lynn at Blue Brightly
Seonaid at Breathe of Green Air
James and Terri at Gallivance (an unfair advantage here, methinks!)
Guntha at Movin’ On
I know that in making these selections I’ve kissed goodbye to my chances, but it’s all about the taking part, isn’t it? (boo! hoo!) You have until 9th October to get your entries in folks, and you don’t even have to wait to be nominated. All the details regarding entry are at Travelsupermarket.com. Just follow the link. Good luck!
