Many thanks to so many of you who left comments on Facebook or our blog as you voted for your favorite blue picture for our entry into the Capture the Colour 2013 Photo Challenge. (If you would like to take a look at our blue photos and vote, click here.)
To fill you in on what we’re doing:
We were nominated for the Capture the Colour 2013 challenge sponsored by TravelSupermarket.com by Terri and James Vance of Gallivance. (To see their entry, click here.) Each day we will post three photos, one for each of the five colors required by the challenge (blue, yellow, green, red, and white) and ask that you vote for your favorite. Then, at the end of the week, we’ll select the top five for submission. Thanks, in advance, for reading and commenting. We appreciate you!
Here are our three entries for YELLOW today:
1. Sunflowers in the Cooler
At Billy Heroman’s flower shop in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, you can walk right into the cooler and select a bouquet to your liking. We loved the fresh colors in this assemblage of yellow sunflowers, but before we said Wrap ‘em up, we snapped this picture of nature’s sunniest offerings for the day.
2. The Boudhanath Stupa
At Boudhanath in Kathmandu, Nepal, the eyes of Buddha stare down at you from this ancient Stupa, one of the largest in the world and situated on what was once a major trade route between Nepal and Tibet. This picture (taken from a second floor office of a medical practitioner who prescribed a concoction of herbs to relieve a fellow traveler’s sinus problems!!) features one of four sets of eyes facing north, south, east, and west on a golden yellow face.
3. Sunrise at Pawleys
Taken from the widow’s walk atop our beach rental in Pawleys Island, South Carolina, this photo reveals the warm yellow rays of morning sun against the silhouettes of other rooftops around us. What a great way to start a morning . . . facing the Atlantic!
Please vote for your favorite YELLOW picture by commenting or posting on Facebook. Your vote is oh, so helpful!
