Yesterday, we had an overwhelming response to our “help us decide” blogs! Thanks! Many of you responded to our request to take a look at three posts offering three different photographs on the colors blue, yellow, and white. You voted, and we’re hoping to finalize our entry this week to submit to the Capture the Colour 2014 Photo Challenge after being nominated by Terri and James Vance of Gallivance. (Click here for their entry.)
If you’ve missed any of the photographs, the links to the previous posts are at the bottom. The photo challenge requires an entry for each of five colors: blue, yellow, white, green, and red.
Today’s photos are GREEN, and we again invite you to look at our pictures and vote for one by either commenting below or on Facebook. Thanks so much for your participation. And now, here are today’s photos for your review.
Today’s Vote: GREEN
1. Singapore Fish Spa
At the Singapore Night Safari, visitors can view nocturnal animals, ride a tram through the zoo, or soak their feet in a green tank while fairly aggressive little fish nibble off dead skin! Oooh, it tickles, some exclaimed, but the paying customers weren’t the only ones giggling and pointing. We were all turning green watching the catch of the day!
2. Greens for Goats
While boarding my bus in rural Nepal, I noticed something coming down the road. Hurriedly, I fumbled through my bag to grab my camera just in time to snap this lady and her strapped-on bundle of leaves and sticks. And then she was gone — moving nimbly up the mountainside to her home. It’s really quite common, the local interpreter told us. All the women here gather greenery for their goats.
3. A November Walk at Catherine Palace
With just a hint of fall turning green leaves ever so gently into gold, we followed other strolling visitors around the grounds of Catherine Palace in the town of Pushkin, Russia.
Remember, all you have to do to vote for your favorite GREEN photo is leave us a comment below.
And if you missed any of the other posts, we’d still love to have your feedback and opinions.

#2 Beautiful photo
You’re on a roll. That’s the one most people selected.
I’m going against the stream with number 1. Excellent point of view!
Thanks for commenting! It was a jaw-dropping experience since it was our first encounter with a fish spa, but I understand they’re much more common now.

I vote for #3 It looks like a very beautiful place.
Thanks so much for reading and commenting. It IS a lovely place!
I vote for #2 as well. Rusha, you are an amazing photographer as well as a great blogger.
Thanks! Do you remember seeing that lady with the bundle of greens? She was the amazing one!
You are too nice! I may have already responded to you but I’m not sure. I have two sets of comments — one in email, one in WordPress. At any rate, thanks for your continued support!
I’m torn between #2 & #3….
Thanks for checking out the blog and helping me narrow it down. It’s hard for me to choose also.

I vote for #2 too! What a great photo from a moving bus!
Thanks so much! Wish I had had more time to prep for that photo, but then again, the story sorta makes it special! Thanks for visiting.

Oh wow these photos are beautiful but number 2 of the woman carrying the greens is great!! Definitely a beautiful capture.
Thanks for taking the time to look and comment. I, too, loved the experience of watching her carry that bundle!
Nice selection Rusha. #2 gets my vote. I’m always amazed at the weight that people (frequently women) can carry with their heads and necks. Also, I wonder about the long term effects. Some orthopedic doctor will see this photo and flip out (or want to move the practice to Nepal). ~James
We even saw someone carrying a basket filled with rocks! The strap wrapped around his forehead. AAAGGGHHH! Thanks for commenting!
I vote for #2. Fabulous picture. Love, love, love it!!
Thanks for being so faithful!!! Your votes mean a lot!
