Word a Week: Orange

Sue ofΒ  ‘A Word in Your Ear’ has given us a challenge to show some orange photos. Orange isn’t one of my favourite colours, probably because I don’t look good in it, but I was surprised to find quite a few oranges in my photo library.

This Vervet monkey just up the road, knows that oranges are really good for him.


In Florida, I spotted enough oranges to fill your vitamin C needs for weeks.


Then of course, there are always many pumpkins knocking around at Halloween,


as well as some other scary orange stuff which I encountered in New Jersey.


Let’s rather go to Jamaica and dine on some delicious lobster,


or would you prefer a slice of Ecuadorian Guinea Pig? I’m pretty sure you’re so horrified that you might have missed the orange bricks. πŸ™‚


Maybe you’d prefer to skip lunch and use your money to buy a lovely piece of hand-woven orange fabric.


Bangkok also seems to favour the colour orange for its temples and shrines,



as well as boat trims.



At the end of the day, I suppose I’ll just have to admit that orange isn’t a bad colour after all. πŸ™‚

  1. EEeeekkk … that guinea pig gave me the creeps. I wouldn’t eat any meat there. It all looks very suspicious. I guess that’s why lose weight on some vacations. I’m never sure what’s in the food. BUT … I love the other pix’s. The sunset at the end … priceless. WOW … the magnificence of nature. Nice job …

    • Thanks, Issy. Well at least you would know what you were eating with the roast guinea pig, but maybe it would be best not to know. πŸ™‚

  2. Wonderful set of orange shots! I always find orange a difficult colour to capture, but you seem to do it very well πŸ™‚

  3. Great and interesting orange gallery – the header photo is my favorite and the boat trims. Great choices for the challenge.

  4. The vervet monkey gets my vote…maybe the scary thingy too. and the pumpkins, lots and lots of pimkins…nut nothing a skewer, thank you very much πŸ˜‰

  5. As lovely as these are, I’ll bet if you posted yourself in an orange outfit, you’d be surprised at the compliments you’d get.
    Fabulous photos, ad.

  6. What the orange meant in pictures tells one of oranges, indeed! πŸ™‚
    Remind me to avoid New Jersey. Old ones are more comfortable, anyway.

  7. Well, when you put it like that, orange is certainly not such a bad colour πŸ˜‰
