Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Yellow

Yellow

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.

A Photo A Week: Yellow

Mellow Yellows

This is the perfect time for yellows. My daffodils are all in full bloom. I do love daffodils, the big King Alfreds are my favourites but I have other varieties too.

As it is still winter here we also have wattle in bloom. A bus driver I used to know used to say “When you see the wattle you’ll see the snow.” I always think of that in August and sure enough, although we’ve not had low-level snow this month we have had falls on the mountains.

I’m very partial to yellow flowers. Here are some more.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Yellow

Sunny Yellows

It’s been so grey and wet through the winter and early spring that the bright yellows of the winter wattle, jonquils and daffodils makes a bright splash of colour that really cheers me up.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Red and Yellow

Red and Yellow

My first thoughts for this challenge were things that were fire engine red and golden yellow. What do I have in those colours? I love red, it’s my favourite colour but what red things are around the house?

I went outside. There is my red, red rose.

I also found Teen Skipper’s friend Nikki. Well OK I had to take her outside myself but she does have a red and yellow outfit. These are the colours I was thinking of in the first place.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge _Yellow or Orange Flowers.

Mellow Yellow and Vivid Orange

I had to hunt around for some pictures of orange flowers as I was surprised to find I didn’t have many. Luckily I found several taken at the Botanical Gardens in spring and some lovely roses I photographed when I blunderd into a flower show at the Hobart Town Hall while looking for something else. Of course I had to add daffodils from my garden and some winter colour in the form of golden wattle.
