Weekend Challenge: Sunshine Yellow

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Sunshine Yellow.

I decided that sunrise and sunset images were too obvious so went looking for the unusual. Then I decided to go with photos taken on my various walks around the neighborhood.

A yellow cap on a plywood figure on the South Bruce Peninsula. Unusual because most of these plywood figures have cowboy hats.

Two yellow Lady’s Slipper Orchids on the South Bruce Peninsula. A photo from 6 years ago when there was still lots of these Orchids growing wild around the neighborhood. I haven’t seen any for a couple of years. I  suspect that they’ve all been dug up and planted in people’s gardens.

Wide Angle Perspective 3

This is my day 27 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and another of my wide angle perspective series.

Looking up at a giant red butterfly garden ornament with a wide angle lens. I like the contrast between the red butterfly and blue sky.

CFFC: Anything Painted

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Anything Painted, from a cabinet to peeling paint.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of this photo of raindrops on the roof of a car. I like the way the raindrops are picking up the colour of the blue paint.

Then I remembered this yellow painted bicycle decorating a garden shed.

On the Hunt for Joy: Put Something Cute on your Desk

ThIs is my contribution to Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Put Something Cute on your Desk.

As seems to be the norm for me recently I went outside the box and then threw it away.

 

On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Put Something Cute on your Desk

First off, these nicknacks are on a kitchen cupboard, my “desk” is an old fashioned Formica kitchen table. Two of these nicknacks, the antelope/gazelle and the “Rock Concert” date back to the early 1980s and have survived something like eight house moves and one change of continents. The kingfisher is from the mid 1980s so probably one less house move. It’s lost its bill at some point.

CFFC: Hats

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Hats.

Except my contribution is the same “hat” photographed weeks apart with two different cameras and lenses. Also it’s more like a cap than a hat although it’s not really either.

Is it just me or does the plywood figure remind anyone else of Alfred Hitchcock?
