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. 🙂
This is the Ammazulu Palace where I went with my family for a belated Birthday lunch. 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 bit of colour we saw, as we 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. They don’t come much more gaudy 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 thing I’ve ever done on impulse. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my colour share. To see more bloggers’ interpretations of sidey’s theme, click here.
Beautiful! I love your background pic of Machu Picchu. Fascinating place! 🙂
Thanks, Flim. Yes Machu Picchu was a fabulous place indeed. 🙂
Love all these vibrant images AD!
Thanks as always for your lovely comment, Madhu.
Glad you enjoyed the Thai green, Hudson. Do you have a blog?
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.
I love this post! I can’t decide which is my favourite pic – the parrot – the palace – the boat. I love them all.
Thanks, Tilly. 🙂
I almost forgot how much fun I was having with your blog when I got vertigo from the para sailing picture
Hahaha. Sorry about that. 🙂
Loved the palace, Bolivia, the exotic bird ………….. actually all of them!
Thanks, so much. 🙂
Gorgeous! I especially love the Bolivia one and the bird in Cairns!! Well done!
Thank you so much. 🙂
Lovely pics again AD, the parrot and your granddaughters painting really caught my eye, thanks for sharing.
Glad you enjoyed my colour pics, optie. 🙂
Ad, your world is full of colour, glorious vibrant colour! I’m going to choose a favourite, because you have what I think is my favourite colour, that acid green 🙂
I’m glad your favourite colour was included in my post. It certainly brightened up a grey day. 🙂
i love your colorful pictures! They are beautiful…..
Thanks so much, Cathy. 🙂
Awesome post! The bird (At Kuranda Bird World) is really, really cute! Wish I could be there!
Thanks so much. I’m glad you enjoyed the photos. 🙂
Lovely post! I especially liked the colourful little birdie
Thanks, jackalax. He is really cute. 🙂
Hi AD, great colours and photos 😉
Thanks, Chris. 🙂
Hi Ad, Fabulous photos as always. Love the colours. Your grandaughters painting is amazing. tfs.
Regards Florence x
Thanks so much, Florence. Wishing you a very happy crafting day. 🙂
With satisfaction and pleasure I read your posts!
Thanks you so much, Stefan. 🙂
Amazing photos.. Love them!
Thanks so much. 🙂
How long we’re you in Peru?
We were on a round the world trip, and spent about a week in Peru.
Nice.. Just not long enough.. But isn’t that true of nearly everything.
Your colors are dazzling, AD. The parrots are my favorite. So bright, cheerful, COLORFUL!
Thanks, Gemma. I love these exotic birds, who never have a ‘bad hair’ day.
You hang in there girl!
There was no way that I wasn’t going to hang on. It was a long way down. 🙂
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!
Thanks, Col. Which ‘bird’ are you referring to? 😀
The gaudy one with feathers, of course!
Of course. 🙂
Lovely colorful post! Your granddaughter did a great job, beautiful!
Thanks, Amy. 🙂
Fantastic, the colours are great, I love the parrot! You do seem to have some very talented artists in your family, your sister yesterday and your granddaughter now! I love this, makes your post so original, great job! G 🙂
Thanks so much, Giana. Yes, I do so admire people who can draw and paint well. I’m not one of them. 🙂
Loved the colour AD 😉
One thing I’ve always wanted to try was para sailing or gliding or whatever 😉
I think you must have a very long bucket list, 68.;) It’s a wonderful feeling to be up there with the birds, and no plane around you.
Lots I still want to do and experience, but not many of those made the actual bucket list – think there’s only about 10 or so things on there 😉
love the spices…and isn’t your granddaughter talented.
Yes, those colours fascinated me too, Jo. My granddaughter really amazes me. She can do anything, it seems. 🙂
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!
Thanks, Gunta. She is a very artistic young woman. She seems to excel at everything she does. 🙂
As always, perfect. AD, can i ask a question?
Thanks, Anthony. Ask away. 🙂
Is there a topic u do not have pictures of?
Hehehe. I shouldn’t think so. 🙂
From what i have seen sins coming to look at your blog, no, i think u have every topic covered.
Ahh fabulous, but the colours of those spices are quite worrying 😉
Yes they are. Maybe they’re dyes and not spices. 🙂
I really enjoy your postings
Thanks you so much. I’m really happy that you do. 🙂
Absolutely beautiful! So tell me, are you into doing crazy things? Looks like you’re having the time of your life?
Thanks, Marco. No I’m not really into doing crazy things, but as you can see, I do have my moments. 😀
We all go a little mad sometimes 🙂
WOW! I loved them all dear AD, these are all amazing. Thank you, love, nia
Thanks, Nia, so glad you enjoyed. 🙂
I love them all! The parrot is my absolute favorite and your Granddaughter did an amazing job!! WOW!!
Thanks, Suzanne. She is quite the artist, in between her dancing and gymnastics. 🙂
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.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thanks so much, Francine. 🙂
We live in a culturally colorful world…as you have portrayed. What I’m REALLY impressed with is YOU on the parasail.WOW!
Thanks, Lynne. I impressed myself. 🙂
