Travel Theme: A rainbow .. one colour at a time.

Alisa’s challenge this week is to find photos with one colour.

Most people think of monochrome photography as being solely black and white, but the definition also includes photos containing varying tones of one colour.

Don’t forget to see the colours in other bloggers worlds! Kindly visit Where’s My Backpack.

I thought about finding several photos focusing on one colour.

I know I can find lots of green or orange. But I decided to find a rainbow of colours.

A red tutu from last years dance recital, an orange pumpkin, some yellow yarn waiting to be made into a gift, the green branches at the Niagara Parks Commission Horticulture Center, blue skies over Lake Ontario, and purple amethyst from the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

And I’ll see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

I was so torn about how to present my photos this week. It felt like too much to ‘list’ them. Having them in a slide show seemed to take away from the ‘rainbow’ effect that I was looking for. I think I’ll have to use one of my photo apps on my photo to make a collage for next weeks Wordless Wednesday.  🙂  Have a colorful week. I look forward to seeing the colours of your world.

WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Signs

SIGNS: a sign that history happen ‘here’ / a sign of spring / a sign of love / a sign of well wishes / a sign of luck / a welcoming sign.

 

If you can read these signs, thank a teacher!  World Teachers Day ~ October 5 

Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge:

From the street signs we see on our commute to work each day to the vintage neon signs put to rest in an outdoor museum in Las Vegas, signs are functional, but can also be decorative. Signs can direct us where to go, but they’re also pieces of art, which reveal much about the time period and culture in which they were made.

For those of you who have a less literal approach to our photo challenges, a sign can also be a gesture or a cue. Something welcome. Or mysterious. Or even foreboding.
