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?

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Green

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.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue and Yellow

Blue and Yellow

Quite a few of my more recent photos have featured various shades of blue and yellow. Naomi and I have had a couple of toy photography sessions and I had lovely blue skies when I went out to see the yachts in Hobart. Blue and yellow go so well together, especially on the water.

  • Lifeboats on Ovation of the seas.

Before everything to do with fashion dolls turned pink blues and yellows were popular colours.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Colourful Monotones


Putting this post together was quite a saga due to an annoying problem my desktop computer has developed. When I am editing photos it hangs if I do more than one photo and the only way to get out of it is by shutting the computer down via the power button.  Luckily most of my photos live on a separate drive which I can plug into my laptop but it is an inconvenience.  All these photos are of things I found around the house.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red

My Favourite Colour

For this week’s challenge I started by photographing some red things at the Op Shop using my phone.

A red spotted cushion

Some red clothing, we like to hang them by colours.

Some red candles in a glass vase.

Red shoes at the Op Shop

As red is my favourite colour you would think there would be a lot of red things in my house but although there are shades of red, mostly darker ones I used my  reds sparingly. In the garden though it is another story.


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Lime or Light Green

Light Greens

Maker’s on Church St, Geeveston

Another rainy Sunday in Geeveston meant I had to get creative to find some lime or light green pictures this week. As I had been photographing dolls in the kitchen I decided to go with items in the kitchen for this challenge. Yes some of them are a bit grubby. I’d rather take photos and play dolls than clean on a Sunday.

Wool wash, light green

The reason for this non kitchen inclusion is that I was washing dolls clothes in the kitchen sink.

Peppermint tea bags.

I didn’t buy these tea bags to drink. I read somewhere that mice don’t like peppermint.

The Blue-Greens

I’m no expert on colours but I guess all of these fall into the category of blue greens. At any rate they are all vibrant colours and pleasant to look at. Here are a few of my favourites from the past.

I do associate this range of colours with water quite a lot.

Fabrics look good in these colours too.

It’s a summery colour,

Here are some I took today with my phone camera.
