Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Colour of Your Choice

My Choice is Red

Red is my favourite colour so of course, I could not resist using it for this challenge. Just for fun, I decided that all my pictures would be vehicle-related and the reddest redsĀ  I could find.

The featured image is an old South Australian railcar, these were a maroon colour when new. We called them Redhens for a weird South Australian reason.

Scarlet Ferrari

I know Ferrari’s come in other colours but if they are not red what is the point?

I think it is a shame that Virgin no longer paints their jets red.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Rainbow

Rainbow Colours

I need a little colour and fun this week so I’m playing along with Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. These photos are all “ones I prepared earlier”. I do have my camera and my portable hard drive with all my photos on it with me at Ally’s house. As the weather is not very colourful, it’s been predominantly brown and ash grey, these photos are all reruns from various other posts.

I love the colours in nature.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Black & White

Black and White in a Colourful World

I decided that for this challenge I would choose things that were actually black and white or mostly black and white to begin with.
