Cee's Fun Foto Challenge: Pastels and Soft Colours

Softer Colours

This challenge turned out to be a little harder for me than I thought. I don’t mind pastel colours but I prefer brighter, more vibrant shades so I don’t own a lot of pastels or soft coloured things and of course, a lot of my stuff is still packed in boxes. Our new garden leans towards vibrantly coloured flowers rather than pastels too but let’s see what we can find around the house. I wish you could smell these candles.

Outside I found a few softer colours. Our one rose bush is a pale, pastel pink. I don’t know the proper name of the flowering shrub but we have a lot of these. The tree is some type of gum, sorry the gardening books are still packed but I will look up the proper name. It is right opposite our upper deck and it is very popular with the birds.

My pictures for this challenge are from my archives. I have just a few more days to pack everything and no time at all to go anywhere to take photos so I’m looking for some new angles on old photos.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue

Just Another Blue Day

Here are some photos that I took specifically for this challenge during our visit to Sisters Beach yesterday. The weather was very changeable with heavy showers followed by short fine breaks. I thought that the colour of the sea and the sky suited the theme very well. Aren’t these clouds dramatic?

Shades of Green

Gleditsia tree

The Gleditsia tree is a bright yellow-green which contrasts with the mid-green of the grass and the darker green of trees in the background.

For some reason, green is a very popular colour for locomotives.

Textures

I knew just what I wanted to photograph for this weeks challenge. I have a big jar of shells I collected when we lived in South Australia and I keep them in my bathroom along with a few I’ve bought here and there.
