Weekend theme: Colour

My blogger friend, viewfromtheside, has given us a weekend theme, and this time it’s “Colour.”

What would our world be if we only saw things in black and white, even if occasionally, we did manage to have a few different shades of grey?

I used some of of my best photos for colour, for the “Capture the Colour” competition, but I still have a few up my sleeve. πŸ™‚

This is the Ammazulu Palace where I went with my family for a belated Birthday lunch. Β As you can see, the whole place is ablaze with colour.

I saw these beautiful brightly coloured spices at a market stall in Bolivia.

On a cloudy, rainy day in Thailand, the brilliant green and red of our long-tail boat, was the only Β bit of colour we saw, as we Β sat sodden almost to the skin, but determined to enjoy ourselves.

This gorgeous little bird posed so nicely for a photo, at Kuranda Bird World in Cairns. Β They don’t come much more gaudyΒ than this.

My granddaughter painted this parrot picture, which also shows the brilliantly coloured plumage of these exotic birds.

In Phuket, almost everyone rides around on bicycles or mopeds, with sometimes three or four crowded on at once. It’s quite unusual to see people wearing helmets, even though there are a myriad colours to choose from.

Also in Thailand, the parasails are very brightly coloured indeed, just so that one can be clearly seen against the dull grey of the sky. This is the craziest and most exhilarating Β thing I’ve ever done on impulse. πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoyed my colour Β share. To see more bloggers’ interpretations of sidey’s theme, click here.

  1. There is it seems a lot colour in this bunch and in all your images you have posted prior. There should be a colour called Thai green, am sure it would be a ‘hot’ green. Which feeds a colour junkie as I.

  2. Hi Ad, Fabulous photos as always. Love the colours. Your grandaughters painting is amazing. tfs.
    Regards Florence x

  3. Another desperate and unduly rushed attempt to catch up. You have the most outstanding library of pictures. Most entertaining, and always impeccablly chosen. That bird is utterly ‘over the top’ and that outfit could only possibly work in Nature!

  4. All beautiful choices. I can’t pick a favorite… but I’m amazed at the talent your granddaughter displays. What wonderful artists you have in your family. Lucky you!

  5. Absolutely beautiful! So tell me, are you into doing crazy things? Looks like you’re having the time of your life?

  6. WOW! She asked for color and you gave us color. Each of your photos is so vivid and alive with a lot of color. I like the first bird with the attitude. Then again I like the beautiful green boat. Oh I give up, I really love them all.
